You are not alone: all of your climate emotions are normal and valid.  "Despair and fear are not inherently bad. Hope and optimism are not inherently good."


Get a journal to help you process your climate emotions and to express gratitude, such as writing, painting or drawing (click here for our creative art therapy guide).


Bring nature into your life. Get a plant, nature photo, grow food, or visit an outdoor green space. 


Notice and slow down your breathing. Slowly inhale and slowly exhale. Start with a minute and gradually add more time each day. Get more breathing tips here.


Talk with friends and family about your climate emotions.


Listen to nature sounds and music that support your sense of well-being, reduces stress, and makes you feel better.  Check out meditations below and sound meditations here.


Monitor your news consumption, both time and content. Seek out inspiring, positive stories of action and healing.

Gratitude and Joy

What are you grateful for? What brings you joy? Remind yourself daily and experience them. 

Learn and Act

Learn about climate justice issues. Create a vision of the world you want to live in. Find meaningful ways to you to use your skills to address the climate crisis in your community with others, whether it's creating art, doing advocacy, scientific research, tree planting, teaching, etc., it's all needed! Taking action also means taking care of ourselves and each other.
