Anxiety and Stress Regarding the Economy

Recently, a client remarked  “If the stock market went back to its peak, I would be much healthier.”  Anxiety and stress may have  a profound effect on not only our emotional states, but also our physical states.  Anxiety, worry, anger and fear; sadness and depression; and medical issues (such as chronic pain, hypertension, and heart disease) may be worsened by the economy. 

How do we cope to diminish this stress?  First, make a financial plan of action. Next. cope with your emotions – practice relaxation and alter your negative, pessimistic thoughts.  Work on your medical issues – follow the physician’s treatment regimen, find pleasurable activities, get some exercise (just walking is great), spend quality time with your partner and other family members.

Anxiety and stress are part of life, but we can cope with them to diminish their effects.  If you need help dealing with anxiety and stress, call Dr. Nadler.
