Hello and know you are in good company, many, many people are worried about the economy.
America's financial crises is fueling chronic stress and limiting some people's ability to think clearly, control emotions and regulate bodily functions in a healthy manner.
Now is the time to take control of emotions and better regulate the mind-body stress response.
Productive worry is thinking on situations you can control, and you should use productive worry to take actions that reduce stress and relieve anxiety.
Unproductive worry is thinking about things you cannot control,"
Take a break. Don't saturate yourself with stressful information. Stay informed, but take a news break. Most people don't need to track the markets minute by minute."
Stay connected. Don't let the rest of your life dwindle away. Make sure you are paying attention to daily activities: family, friends, social occasions and recreation.
Pay attention to yourself. Remember that stress takes a physical toll. Learn meditation and do muscle relaxation. More simply, pay attention to your stress level throughout the day and occasionally breathe slowly and deeply. Reference: University of Alabama at Birmingham
I hope this helps you in some small way.
