07 Mar Being Well Podcast: Supporting Yourself During Difficult Times
Today we focus on supporting yourself during difficult times and what you can do, in your mind and in your life, to support to relate to the challenging emotions – fear, grief, anxiety, anger, helplessness, and so on – that naturally arise during these times.
The tone of this episode of Being Well is a bit different. For context, we recorded it four days after the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
It feels like we’ve had more than our fair share of difficult times over the last few years. Like many people, we wish there were more we could do to support those suffering around the world. Today Dr. Rick and Forrest focus on supporting yourself during difficult times and what you can do, in your mind and in your life, to relate to the challenging emotions – fear, grief, anxiety, anger, helplessness, and so on – that naturally arise.
The advertising revenue from this episode will be donated to charities dedicated to supporting the people of Ukraine. If you’d like to join us in donating, we’ve included links below to several charities.
