If we are spiritual, we can turn to prayer, asking that no harm comes to us or our loved ones. More importantly, we can understand and accept that all things are impermanent, even our bodies.
Whether it is the bad weather or the rising cost of living or any startling event that occurs in our lives — all of which are beyond our control or manipulation — it is best to stay calm while feeling grateful, in this moment, for all the abundance in our lives, starting with a roof over our heads and realizing that not everyone is so fortunate.
