Dianne Gubin Offers 7 Tips To Stay Positive in a Funky Economy

Tip of the Week
by Dianne Gubin

During these funky times,
the never-ending bad news
can cause anxiety, panic and worry.

Here are 7 ways to stay positive regardless of the economy:

An endorphin rush always helps your mind function at its peak.

Get outside. Nature has a way of soothing stress and taking your mind off your worries.

Tap into your support network. Stay in touch with friends, family and colleagues who can help you maintain your balance.

Volunteer. Volunteering is an excellent way to give back to your family and community.

Sleep. Getting a good night's rest allows you to function at full capacity the next day.
Focus on your strengths and natural abilities. When things come easily to you, you know you're on the right path.

Gratitude and appreciation attract more positives into your life.
If you're in the job market, staying positive is imperative. Getting out of your home and into environments where you're connecting with other people can help.

It's easier to be lucky when you're out in the world and talking to others.
You can hear about new situations in all sorts of places including parking lots,
coffee bars and gyms.
Leads can come from connections in your larger extended network.

Employed or not, your career path might not follow the trajectory you planned
when you went to school or started your career; however, new connections lead
to new opportunities. Down markets are forcing many onto new paths.

Use visualization exercises to see yourself in the professional
environment of your choice, doing what you love, loving what
you do and being paid abundantly.
