John, take breaks from the Internet.

There's a big industry out there keeping you riled.
Lots of $$ and clicks in it.
Stay away from people deliberately trying to stir your anxiety.

Keep busy (see my list)

Remember that one goal of Active Measures was to cause people to lose confidence in Democracy.

Rage wears people out, and causes them to give up.

Not everyone wants to preserve democracy.

Some of the people trying to stir your rage may have other motives.

Should have added exercise to the list.

Panic never helps.

The National Transportation Safety Board says that 95% of people in flight accidents survived.

So even in an actual plane accident, a cool head can save lives.
