Therapies for pandemic anxiety relief are more important now―than ever! Let’s all utilize healthy ways to process our thoughts regarding the insane January 6th’s U.S. Capitol terrorist attacks on our homeland.

Regardless of what political loyalty you have; let’s come together and calm the waters by beginning with ourselves. I am sharing the following wellness recommendations to promote healthier psyches as we move forward into 2021.

What you can do to become calmer by Jennifer Shannon, LMFT.

Here are two things that Jennifer Shannon recommends when feeling anxious:

  1. Feel the feelings instead of reacting to them. When we are able to make room for feeling anxious and use simple tools like breathing into the discomfort without trying to get rid of it, we eventually calm down.
  2. Learn to tolerate uncertainty. The truth is, very little in life is certain, and it is our ability to tolerate this uncertainty that allows us to live life more fully. If we spend our life trying to be certain about things, the only thing for certain is that we will have wasted a lot of our time and energy trying for the impossible.

As Shannon suggests, “By practicing these two strategies, we take control of our lives instead of allowing fear to control us. We are better able to access the more evolved part of our brains, and we will be far more effective in our strategies to reduce mass shootings and terrorism.”

Jennifer Shannon, LMFT, is the cofounder of the Santa Rosa Center for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
