Eco-anxiety is a normal and rational reaction to the many environmental crises we are living through.
However, it can become a problem when the worries are out of proportion to the threats, and start to impact our daily functioning in a negative way.
There are a few things you can do to help reduce your eco-anxiety:
- Limit yourself in the content you consume, the issues you tackle and the actions you choose to undertake
- Nobody can do it all.
- Educate yourself so you better understand how you can help.
- Take actions – Small or big, all action counts.
- Your feelings are valid – Accept them.
- Remember that the environmental crisis is not your burden – It is all of ours.
Doomscrolling can exacerbate the feelings associated with eco-anxiety. Instead try to look for good climate news once in a while or to simply reconnect with nature by taking a walk (check out our resources for your weekly good climate news!).
