The financial news is terrible right now. A lot of my patients are coming in stressed out over the market, the real estate problems and the Wall Street bail out.
I teach people a variety of stress management techniques to manage their feelings about these matters. Some of these methods are described in my stress management program:
I suggest to some business owners that they view the bad news as distraction and simply focus on what they can do to move their business forward.
Some people like to use techniques used by athletes to stay calm, focused, confident and optimistic during a financial storm. These techniques are included in my stay in the zone program.
