5 things to do in turbulent times

Posted on: February 4, 2011

Egypt. Haiti. Uprisings. Acts of nature. Dictatorial governments. Killings. We all feel powerless and frustrated when these things happen. How can we move past this? What can we do to inspire others who need it?
  1. Let go of the illusion that worrying helps. Empathy doesn’t help either.
  2. Instead, breathe. Feel your center. Visualize sending love and compassion to those enduring the difficulties.
  3. Contact a reputable humanitarian agency doing work in that area. Ask them what they need. And if you have any personal connection whatsoever in the area
  4. Make a donation – something, anything – to help. $5 is still five dollars.
  5. Keep living your life the best you can – don’t compromise your own sanity or health. And encourage others to also help.
