Psychologists recommend the use of acronyms to help you to remember to be mindful during situations that cause you anxiety, stress, or anger. These mindfulness acronyms can help you cope with Global Climate Change, and the impact it has on our daily lives.

 

When your uncle posts on Facebook a picture of himself wearing shorts in March with the caption “if this is global warming, I could get used to this!,” take a breath and focus on his SHORTS:

When your boss offers his opinion that “Well actually, the Kyoto Protocol would have been pretty bad for our economy”…breathe, smile, and pick up your BRIEFCASE:

Environmental

Facts,

Close-mouthed,

And

Stay

Employed

 

When your Prius is subjected to “rolling coal” by a lifted pick-up truck with a gun rack and Trucknutz…slow down, and NASCAR:

When unusually warm water in the Pacific Ocean means Whole Foods is out of Cod and you can’t make your famous Maple Soy-Glazed Cod for the potluck dinner party…allow yourself to be enveloped by THE BLOB:

When the shock/amazement/amusement of seeing a Pizza Rat quickly turns to sadness because it reminded you that the (rat-like) Bramble Cay melomys is now extinct…exit the subway and this emotional MAELSTROM:

Other

Mammals?

 

When your devastated mother calls to tell you that your family home, photo albums, and childhood belongings were lost in the deadliest wildfire in a century, just be thankful she’s safe from the CAMP FIRE:

If at any time and for any reason you start to feel the gravity of Global Climate Change stressing you out, just remember that you can always CONTINUE NOT DOING SHIT.
