Tsunami increases high Anxiety

Unfortunate thing happened today at Japan. There was a major earthquake.  We even in California awaken by the phone call 4:00AM in the morning.  The police department was warning us for the possible tsunami

  There is a natural real threat in the enviroment and we don’t know how it will affects us.  These are the things I can suggest you to do:

1-In order to reduce your anxiety and prepare to be safe, try to get more information about your local area about the anticiated tsunami.   You can call your local police department or listen your local radio/ TV channels.

2-Do not stuck in the worried feelings,  start making plans: Such as  where you want to be and what are the things you want  to carry with you.  How do you  travel to your safe destination before the disaster hits.

Remember if you are an axious person, you may force to  think rationally as much as possible.  Remember there is only a one difference between anxious person and non anxious person:  Anxious person worries and tries to avoid  from the anxiety provoking situation before it happens; non anxious person worries and go forward to solve the problem when it happens, and  keep things under control as much as possible.

“Tokyo (CNN) — The most powerful earthquake to hit Japan in at least 100 years unleashed walls of water Friday that swept across rice fields, engulfed towns, dragged houses onto highways and tossed cars and boats like toys, apparently killing hundreds and forcing the evacuations of tens of thousands”.
