One of the things that you could do to prevent yourself from being shocked from unfortunate happenings is to let yourself become aware of them. Although this approach may be brutal for some people, it is one strategy that is really useful. You could watch videos or documentaries about tragedies that happen to people. However, you shouldn’t only focus on the exact things that happen to victims. To help yourself with your coping, you could become educated about how people cope after something tragic has happened to them. Find out how victims of misfortunes rise up after they’ve experienced devastation and you will surely think twice about panicking following accidents or unfortunate events. From time to time, you should try watching presentations about natural calamities, crime cases and stories of triumph.
If you want to, you could do the same as above but resort to reading books instead of watching movies or any video footage of calamities. Sometimes, you could get more information from reading materials. To help yourself cope better in the future when something bad would happen to you, you could read books that have the details of the trails that people have overcome. Through reading, you could imagine what people have been through and then also think of the things that they did to triumph over their problems in life. Also, you could read published materials that contain positive affirmations that people have used to calm their nerves after something devastating has happened to them for some things that you could use quickly following serious life problems.
Listening to sad songs may also actually help because of the fact that you could simulate negative feelings felt by people who’ve had lots of things happened to them when you’d tune in to music that lets people feel some negative emotions. Before you start listening to these sounds, however, make sure that you don’t have problems that you believe that you can’t handle so that you won’t add insult to injury. Instead, during times when you feel alright, you should train yourself by hearing these songs. Sure, your mood may be negatively affected but you would at least teach yourself to cope well even with negativities when you’d practice listening to sad music.
