Hurricane Season and Anxiety

PTSD can be caused by many different kinds of traumas, one that we may not consider as readily is the threat of storms. People who lost everything in Hurricane Sandy or other storms like that can and sometimes do relive the fear of that happening again when hurricane season kicks up each Fall. Since I opened Peaceful Warriors nearly two years ago I have met a number of families who lost everything, as well as, firefighter families                                                                   who were out helping those who were in danger. 

The police, firefighters, medical teams, and others who were out in the field rescuing and recovering those impacted by storms often see and experience things that they will never share with others.  These experiences are never far from their minds when these storms come rolling through again. We are often quick to judge their responses, but I can tell you they do a job that most will never truly understand. They are out there for us in conditions that are very dangerous. I think the thing we have to remember is that we are talking about human beings and the families they leave at home when they are out helping others in very dangerous circumstances.

Taking up a meditation practice can help to dispel the anxiety that comes up with storms. Sometimes the anticipation of reliving something can be just as debilitating as the actual event itself because we are feeding the stress hormones in our brains. We are paving the pathway of fear and therefore making things a bit worse for ourselves. 

Stay safe this hurricane season and take heed when given the prompting. Our safety is far more important than our possessions.

Recently, I've read some post and it is really good time for me. That is able to helps me know some knowledgeable thing about the anxiety marriage, parenting, friendships and health. But, anxiety writing tips and concept is very helpful and I've used phenibut product to reduction my anxiety. phenibut is a borderline nootropic, at best. It's proven mechanism of action results in anxiety reduction.
