Anxiety & The News

About 2 years ago I noticed that a lot of clients presenting with anxiety listen to the news a LOT (TV,radio,phone updates etc).
Much of the news seems to be based on what might happen. Something like:This small thing has happened.That means that this might happen,if that happens then this might happen & if that happens we're really screwed!
As people weaned themselves off so much media exposure their anxiety began to drop(there was some therapy too!!) and their wellbeing increased.
Stay informed by all means and also take the time to look around you at what is actually happening in your situation right now,are you ok?
"Whenever you meet a problem, help if it is in your power to do so.After you have acted,withdraw and be unconcerned about it.Walk on without ever mentioning it to anybody.Then there is no worry,because there has been no action."
