Ten Percent Happier with Dan Harris

3 Buddhist Strategies for When the News is Overwhelming | Kaira Jewel Lingo

A former nun explains how to deal with doom-scrolling, despair, and rage in the face of world events.


Kaira Jewel Lingo spent fifteen years as a monastic in Thich Nhat Hanh’s Plum Village tradition. She is now a lay dharma teacher and is the author of We Were Made for These Times: Ten Lessons for Moving Through Change, Loss, and Disruption.


In this episode we talk about:

  • How to stop doom-scrolling and what to do instead
  • Why it’s more important, not less, to take care of yourself in times of crisis
  • How to take concrete action that reduces suffering
  • Stories and lessons from the life of Thich Nhat Hanh
