Stressed out? How the economy wears you down

Stressed out? How the economy wears you down – How the economy is affecting sleep, diet, weight, relationships, addictions, well-being, and depression. – Los Angeles Times.

An image series with extended captions. It’s worth reading each full captions, but I do have favorites. Only time to check on one or two? I recommend reflecting on the influence of economic stress on sleep, diet, and addiction. It’s always important not to neglect relationships, but financial stress can make it that much more of a challenge.

Take some time for yourself. Get outside when the weather’s nice. Need some help with stress management? Schedule a massage, see your acupuncturist, or if you need more help, don’t hesitate to seek counseling. Life will have it’s ups and downs. Sometimes extra steps are needed to make sure it doesn’t become overwhelming.
