Coping with Recession-Related Anxiety

  • Frequent worry and pessimism about your current and future lifestyle due to finances.
  • Uncertainty about if and when things will get better.
  • Embarrassment or shame about not meeting the expectations of those you support.
  • Powerlessness to correct the financial situation.
  • Sadness or grief about losing a home, vehicle, standard of living, or even the derailment of your “life plan.”
  • Irritability or anger that is often misdirected at your loved ones or yourself.
  • Physical symptoms such as problems with sleeping or eating, muscle pains, headaches, abdominal pain/gastrointestinal problems, difficulty concentrating or sitting still, feeling overly emotional or experiencing mood swings, or feeling “anxious” all of the time for no apparent reason.
