Economic anxiety is the issue en mode, and experts say the number of people seeking help for their money-induced stress is growing. Those reaching out to professionals for help haven't necessarily dealt with huge financial blows, and some patients are simply affected by the general uncertainty of the times. Whether you're suffering from serious panic attacks, losing sleep, or simply feel more stressed than usual, it's important to find ways to deal with your symptoms.
If you don't think it's necessary to visit a professional for advice, take steps to cope with the stress on your own. According to The New York Times, the general advice experts are dishing out is to "engage in activities that can release stress, like exercise, hobbies or socializing with friends and family," and therapists "also encourage people to try to take action or make decisions in areas where they have some control."
Here's my favorite piece of advice the NYT picked up from the experts surveyed: Write down your worries and responsibilities before you go to bed. It's a simple solution for clearing your head before going to bed, which can give you a better chance for a good night's sleep.
