Grounding - Dealing with Overwhelming News of Violence

August 05, 2019

Sometimes the news is just unbearable. Hearing of recent gun violence this past weekend in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio has many of us on edge, stressed or filled with anxiety. During these troubling times it’s helpful to ground yourself. In this episode of Balanced Mind, Julie Potiker leads us on a grounding meditation and offers tips on staying grounded in the midst of chaos.


When things in the news are horrific our tendency is to dive into the news to find out the backstory of everything. Julie suggests giving yourself a "news blackout" and to screen your social media in order to protect yourself and your heart. During mindful meditation you can give love to yourself while also sending loving kindness to others. We’re in this together.
