Breaking News! How many times a day do you see this headline? We are living in turbulent times and it just might be taking a toll on our well being, our health, and ultimately our lives. I think I can assume that everyone is overwhelmed from the ongoing developments of our national political scene and the world at large. There are countless reasons to be shaken and stressed and feel buried under the rubble of the media’s take on it all. The wildfire of conflict and questioning and anger and fear is at an all time high as “Breaking News” slams us every day. And it doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon. In fact, I don’t think it will.
So I ask you this question:
“How are you taking care of yourself, these days?”
I know I have spent too many nights consumed in watching or reading tv interviews, breaking news pieces, or interesting bylines that suck me in online. And as important as it is for us all to be informed and involved in our domestic and global events, it is also just as vital that we keep a healthy boundary line on it all and be aware of how this mess and our involvement in it is impacting our lives.
I think it is imperative we practice some mindful and intentional steps to manage the stress, ultimately helping us contribute to the discussion and the involvement of the unfolding headlines that seem to never end.
We simply must take some action to clear our heads, so we can all survive this madness.
I explored five specific steps to take that will help you feel more grounded and better able to manage the stress of it all more effectively, over at Her View From Home. I would love for you to drop by to read my post and pass it on, so others can also be helped and reminded to take care of themselves during these turbulent times.
