Finding calm : managing fear and anxiety in an uncertain world

Johal, S. S. (Sarbjit S.)2022
We live in a troubled world - so many changes, so many uncertainties. This book gives a range of practical skills to help anyone come to terms with feelings of anxiety and learn to thrive. How do you deal with your anxieties and fears when there is so much uncertainty in our world? Are we safe from Covid, from climate change, from the changing demographics of our cities? Can we keep our children safe from on-line dangers? How can we tell truth from misinformation and fake news? Dr Sarb Johal is an expert in emergency management and disaster psychology, and was called on to help develop the world-leading response to the threat of Covid-19 in his home country of New Zealand. The lessons, which we can all apply in our daily lives, are in this timely book. Full of easy-to-follow, practical tools and tips, Finding Calm can help you get through any crisis or change of circumstance with your mental health intact. You'll learn how to deal with uncertainty; the psychological impact of empathy -- both on ourselves when we offer it, and to those who receive it; along with practical ideas around introducing structure into your life and how this can help reduce stress and contain feelings of panic. Finding Calm is for anyone wanting to strengthen their capacity to ride life's many ups and downs -- with more steadiness, ease and a sense of groundedness.
