In wake of the tragic events at Virginia Tech University earlier this week, MindManager customer and blogger, Juan Makabayan, mapped out some coping strategies for dealing with anxiety and bereavement that I discovered on his blog. Visit this link, if you’d like to see the map in more detail.
Juan says he’s a big believer in writing regularly in a blog or journal to help cope with feelings of loss and grief. He also says visual thinking and mapping tools have also served this purpose for him.
“It clarifies complex ideas by making associations to different concepts. It relieves the mind from over thinking via conventional or verbose ways. In fact, it also frees us to process information in a different way. I believe that it helps clarify thinking towards a more rational framework,” he says.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all who were affected by the VT tragedy.
