Befriending Our Fears

How to Handle Anxiety in the Age of Orange Alert

Miriam Greenspan • 3/29/2003

Anxiety, worry, insomnia, nightmares, hypervigilance, and difficulties with concentration have become widespread in the current climate of color-coded terrorist alerts and bio/chemical/nuclear weaponry. These steps offer tools for paying attention to fear, building up one's fear tolerance, and letting fear be, which is the only true way to let it go.
