4 Ways to Cope with Uncertainty
How do you deal with the stress and uncertainty caused by the coronavirus?
Information about the coronavirus seems to be changing by the hour — creating unprecedented uncertainty. There is an excellent reason to feel unsettled, anxious, or jangled.
Uncertainty triggers a stress reaction.
Under stress, our brains depend on instinct rather than rational thought because the part of the brain responsible for critical thinking is busy dealing with the psychological reaction to stress. This reaction not only impedes our ability to get things done, but it can also create a paralyzing loop of anxiety.
So, what do we do about it?
This ebook is based on Eliz Greene’s new book, Stress-Proof Your Heart, as well as her research on stress. It offers four implementable strategies to:
- Understand why uncertainty causes stress
- Insulate yourself from external triggers of stress
- Shut down the stress reaction and recover
- Be kind to yourself
