Feelings of eco-anxiety, terrafurie (Earth anger), or solastalgia? Same!
Feeling the threat of climate change involves a whole host of difficult emotions. Common feelings are fear, anger, guilt, shame, grief, loss, helplessness. These strong feelings might result from direct fears about climate-related weather events affecting the world around us, or vicarious distress about future threats, or climate change impacts in other places, or even distress in response to the existential threats to civilisation as we know it.
Yoga has been shown in peer-reviewed research to support psychological well-being, with movement-based yoga significantly improving the mental health of people living with a range of mental disorders including depression and anxiety. According to research, the more weekly yoga sessions a person completes, the greater the effect on easing depressive symptoms.
