There have been many devastating events happening lately, one right after another. Lives and homes have been lost, and it feels as though the tidal wave of tragedies is relentless. It’s emotionally exhausting, and it’s hard not to get weighed down with fear and sadness every time I read the news.
Over the past week, the smoky air and the vivid media coverage from the fires in Butte County and southern California have been stressful for all of us. Smells and images that are reminiscent of last year’s trauma can be “triggers” that can cause a setback in recovery.
Take time to pause and reflect on the things that are going well and make you feel content. When we make thankfulness a daily habit, it can improve our own physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
