There is a lot of uncertainty in the world right now. And while it’s important to stay informed, continually following grim news coverage will keep attention focused on the despair.

You have more control than you might think.
One example of how to change your focus is using Dr. Dan Siegel’s Mindful Breathing practice.
If you are needing some additional help on changing your focus, check out Some Good News with John Krasinski. Let it be a reminder of how resilient we are even in these troubling times and that it’s important to laugh.
