It is safe to say world events are unfolding today in a way that is unlike any other time. With social media and the 24-hour news cycle, we are exposed to news, strong opinions, and calls to action constantly. Contemplating issues or taking a stand can be energizing, but having our beliefs and thoughts about events in mind so often can also be distressing and exhausting. All this can be a significant, destabilizing distraction, interrupting our daily routines and chipping away at our well-being. It's understandable if you or your family members experience increased distress in this highly charged climate - fortunately, there are ways to manage it.
