For many, anxiety over a Donald Trump presidency feels like a political nervousness. But ALL anxiety is a problem, no matter what causes it.
How To Handle Trump Anxiety
It’s easy to vote. It’s easy to post your feelings on social media for your friends to see – many of whom share the same view as you. It is much more difficult to become an active person in your local community on a political level.
Moderate Social Media
One of the main causes of Trump anxiety can best be summed up by the last few days of the election. This was when it was announced in the news that Donald Trump’s Twitter account was taken away because he had become too reckless with it. Those that were concerned about how this recklessness may affect his control over nuclear weapons were troubled.
Spend Your Time Outdoors
By default, much of your news and education is consumed online. You sit in front of your computer, inside, on the couch or at a desk, and read about it as much as you can.
Trump anxiety can be controlled through education. We see this with panic attacks. Panic attacks are often triggered by physical sensations – for example, you may feel some mild chest pain. This causes the body to rush with adrenaline worried that the chest pain is something more serious, like a heart attack. Then when you learn how and why anxiety causes chest pain, it can have a calming effect on your anxiety in the future.
Engage The Rural Voters In Group
Donald Trump’s victory was almost entirely due to rural voting groups that felt left behind by the rest of society. As a result one of the most important takeaways of the election is that no voting group should be completely ignored or marginalized, because when they do, they may fight back in force.
Conclusion Over Trump Anxiety:
let’s understand that we have a choice on how much time we spend on watching the news, researching Trump’s presidency etc. If we don’t completely eliminate but lessen the time we spend worrying about the world’s problems, we can begin moving in a direction towards our purposes/missions in this lifetime.
Take notice of where your time is being spent and how it’s growing you as a person. If it doesn’t serve you, lessen your time there, and replace it with something that your future you will thank you for.
