Are you feeling restless, irritable, or worried thinking about the future, watching the news or reading about the state of the planet? Climate anxiety is becoming more and more common as climate changes seem to be getting worse. Anxiety can make us passive – and there are ways to instead make it put us into action mode.
The future can be overwhelming to think about, especially if we consider the planet's current state. In fact, a study on Climate Anxiety in Children and Young People
reveals that 84% of youth from ten countries are at least moderately worried about the planet, while 59% are extremely worried. And this worry could negatively impact the daily life, functioning, and even the thoughts of the young generation.
However, kids aren't the only ones affected by the planet's condition. People of all ages are concerned about the environment, and it's impacting our mental health.
