I want you to know this is a normal response in times of adversity. When times get tough, we are constantly bombarded with negative news.
It causes us to experience all of the feelings listed above... 𝗬𝗢𝗨 𝗖𝗔𝗡 𝗖𝗛𝗔𝗡𝗚𝗘 𝗧𝗛𝗜𝗦... 𝗜𝗙 𝗬𝗢𝗨 𝗪𝗔𝗡𝗧!

1. Decide what FEELING you want? (if you are feeling stressed, you may want to feel calm). 2. Decide what you need to FOCUS on to feel that way. (Focus on things that make you feel calm). 3. Establish triggers/reminders to focus on the specific thing. (The news is a great trigger to make you feel negative emotions). We all have the power to choose our experience of everyday events. I just takes practice.. like most things in life.
