In the wake of the recent terror attack, the world is still reeling. People are feeling the need to take action and do something productive. But the question everyone wants to know is “what can we do?”
Opening paragraph 2:
The answer may be simpler than you think – the only way out of this darkness and dread is through it. Instead of running away from our problems or ignoring them, we should confront them head on. Here’s how to get started with your personal self-care plan!
Heading: the only way out is through
The opening paragraph of the blog post discusses the terror attacks and the world’s reaction to it. The current feeling in the air is that something needs to be done, but what? The second paragraph goes on to discuss how individuals can cope with these problems head-on, not running away for their lives or ignoring them.
Long-Form Content – Paragraphs Three & Four
The next two paragraphs of the blog post go on to discuss the individual effects that the terror attacks have had, such as the fear and anger. The article explains how these feelings are natural human responses, but they shouldn’t consume us or discourage us from living our lives.
These feelings may also be a result of the sense of powerlessness people feel in this situation – there’s not much we can do about terrorism, so why bother trying? However, if we take time for ourselves by focusing on what matters most to us and maintain healthy habits (such as getting enough sleep), then it helps remove some of the symptoms caused by extreme stress.”
Long-Form Content – Paragraph Five & Six
In paragraph five the writer talks about the different ways we can help the victims of the attacks. It mentions the importance to stay updated with the news and donating blood if possible. The author also encourages people in similar situations like the ones being affected by terrorism (ie countries that have been victimized) to never give up hope and not let this fear keep them from their dreams.”
In paragraph six the article discusses how it is important for those who are left behind after a terrorist attack or any other kind of tragedy such as natural disasters to take care of themselves so they don’t develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). “If the attacks have left you feeling helpless and don’t know how to help, the answer is really simple.
Take care of yourself so that you’re not one of the people who develops PTSD.”
In paragraph six the article discusses how it is important for those who are left behind after a terrorist attack or any other kind of tragedy such as natural disasters to take care of themselves so they don’t develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The author also encourages people in similar situations like the ones being affected by terrorism (ie the bombing in the Boston Marathon) to find ways of coping with the traumatic event.
The article concludes by saying “it’s okay not be alright sometimes” because these moments show us what really matters most.
After the tragedy at the marathon, it was clear that there were many people who needed help coping and understanding trauma better… So I reached out to a few friends for their advice on how they have been able to cope after devastating events.
In paragraph three the author discusses reaching out to her friends for advice on how she can deal with excessive stress or trauma following recent terrorist attacks such as the bombings in Boston or Paris (which happened just two weeks prior). The blog post then goes onto discuss different techniques used by those interviewed but the overall message the advice is to just do the best you can.
Here are the things that have been helpful in my life:
– talk with someone who’s been through a similar thing as me, like this blog post does for those burdened by emotional trauma and excessive stress; find an outlet or hobby I enjoy (whether it be running every day or watching Netflix); take care of myself physically, whether it means going to the gym regularly or eating more vegetables; and finally, remind myself that there will always be another race I’ll need to run but at least knowing what helped before makes these challenges easier to tackle now. There may not seem like there’s any way out
