Small Action > Great Anxiety

There are many reasons, legitimate reasons, to be worried about the state of the world. Five minutes on Twitter will fill you with dread. Just remember that taking even the most insignificant action (participation in anxiety reinforcing social media doesn't count as action) to counter the things you fear beats all the worry in the world. Show up to vote, make a donation, volunteer, help a neighbor, write an op-ed, contact your representative - just do something. Living in a constant state of anxiety isn't engagement. It isn't action. It isn't productive.
