For me, gratitude is a beautiful antidote to anxiety. One thing I have done in the past is to actually write down the things I am grateful for in a journal. Sometimes it is harder than others, but if I take time and think about it, there is so much to be grateful for – even in the midst of a storm.
I do not ignore the storm around me and I do take what I believe are prudent steps, but I have found that the more I focus on being grateful and helping others, the less anxious I am.
It is about taking my eyes off of myself and looking outwards towards others, the beauty of creation, and being grateful for so many things – both large and small.
So, even with all that is going on right now – what are the things for which you are grateful?
