I think one of the best things a person can do is get clear on what their true nature is -- especially while living in a world where you're faced with sociopathic people, companies, and governments wanting to kill, destroy, or silence anyone they perceive of as being in the way of satisfying or preserving their egoistic desires for power and wealth, which are of course immature desires born out of not being clear on their actual identity. Or as Alan Watts might say... "Myself: A Case of Mistaken Identity."
If one thinks one is a body-mind, then they will live in constant fear of "no longer existing." However, when this mistaken identity is questioned enough, and the truth of one's unshakeable and unchanging being (as the prior-to-thought observing witness) is seen and recognized as what one truly is, then the fear of living and dying drops away. From there, one acts more courageously and unselfishly and is able to accomplish far more good in the world and act with more love and compassion. It's impossible to truly love when one is full of fear.
So, that would be my recommendation in this day and age. Seek yourself, your true Self. Drop the false ego-identity, which, if looked for, is found to be non-existent, except as another thought or idea floating around in the vast, open space of the pure awareness that you are. Then, there are no more "problems," as the Self is like open, aware space that has no problems, because the mind and its problems can't reach It because it is prior to thought, as the observer of thought. Just peace and a feeling of "no-otherness" remain.
Just my two cents FWIW.
