Psychiatrist Judson Brewer, MD, describes anxiety as a form of uncertainty. How do we bring some certainty to our lives when our world feels out of control? Brewer says that becoming aware of our physiological needs—are we hungry, thirsty, tired?—can help us feel more secure. Being conscious about how we consume news can also help. Grounding techniques—try focusing your feet—can ease panic. Going for a walk is good, but instead of making it mindless, Brewer suggests changing your pace to match what your body needs. Host Elise Loehnen also asks Brewer how we can support friends in distress during the COVID-19 pandemic without becoming more distressed ourselves. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)
