Watch videos and look at photos where you witness love.
G-rated love – where you view people being kind and thoughtful to one another.
Next, the researchers used functional magnetic resonance imaging – also called fMRI – to measure how the brains of these voyeurs of love reacted to this lovey-dovey assignment.
It turns out their brains showed a reduction in the areas which represent feeling anxiety.
Witnessing love is helpful at soothing anxiety.
Plus if a participant in this study was shown to be especially anxious, then their results were even stronger.
The highly anxious people who looked at photos of love and support wound up experiencing the most effective reduction of their anxiety.
If you’re feeling anxiety, get on your computer and start googling for videos and photos of people who are helping people.
You can start by googling key words like “acts of kindness” or “good samaritan” or “local hero.”
