Take up Meditation

I've been practicing for about 5 years and meditate every morning and sometimes before bed. A 20-25 minute session in the morning puts me in a really good space, and can last all day.

Keep in mind that no matter what happens in the world your inner awareness will always be with you. Get in touch with that and you'll find the kind of freedom that no one can ever take from you, no matter what happens in the world.

I recommend "Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind" by Shunryu Suzuki.

And if you're religious, don't think Buddhism is a religion. Contrary to popular belief, Buddhists don't worship Buddha, or anything else.

It points you to the real you beyond your ego and beyond your mind. A place that few people ever go. In these times, that can be extremely beneficial to one's sanity.
