Worry and fear are detrimental to your health. When worrying becomes excessive, it can lead to feelings of high anxiety and even cause you to be physically ill. You may suffer with high anxiety -- even panic -- during waking hours. Many chronic worriers tell of feeling a sense of impending doom or unrealistic fears that only increase their worries. Ultra-sensitive to their environment and to the criticism of others, excessive worriers may see anything -- and anyone -- as a potential threat.
My roommate was a chronic worrier. She now has breast cancer. She will heal in time, but she now realizes that all that worrying probably manifested as illness. I tend to agree.
Chronic worrying affects your daily life so much that it interferes with your appetite, lifestyle habits, relationships, sleep, and job performance. Many people who worry excessively are so anxiety-ridden that they seek relief in harmful lifestyle habits such as overeating, cigarette smoking, or using alcohol and drugs.
I think as people become more aware of world events, they "know" there is something very wrong. Governments have spiraled out of control, creating war after war, crisis after crisis, racking up enormous debt that WE and generations to come will have to repay. Millions of innocents have died during these conflicts. Entire countries lay in ruin. Lives destroyed.
As I often share here on my blog, massive disrespect is being shown to our Earth. Rampant pollution of our waters by big corporations who never seem to face more than a slap-on-the-wrist financial penalty, fracking causing seismic activity and oil drilling in our oceans.. killing the creatures we share this planet with in mass. Let's not forget the Keystone pipeline they want to run through the middle of our country. Whether being a "terrorist" attack or lack of proper maintenance (these people can't even keep our current infrastructure in good working order), it is a horrific accident waiting to happen.
The Earth was created in perfect balance. We are destroying it.
Do you ever wonder..what can I do about it?
This is what I have chosen to do. My belief is...if people in mass did the same, there would be real change..and fast! The systems in place would fall to their knees and we could demand change.

Economic collapse, EMP's taking down the power grid, etc. have little meaning to me anymore. I know how to care for myself and our planet. I wish more people would join me. Thanks for reading :)
