Therapy can help everyone in this regard. Processing your thoughts and fears in a controlled manner with a qualified therapist can help you keep anxiety in check and prevent it from boiling out of control into a full blown phobia or disorder. It doesn't take a lot of sessions. If you aren't dealing with an anxiety disorder, maybe one or two sessions will be all it takes to get on top of your worries. In the meantime, when you're reading the news on your phone or watching the evening news at night, rehashing yet another tragedy, remember what our friend Mr. Rogers said. (Yes, that Mr. Rogers.) "Look for the helpers." It's what his mother told him to do when he heard scary news, and I swear it's a helpful tool for anxiety even now. Every time you see images of tragedy on your screen, you will most likely see even more helpers. Focus on the helpers.
