Blog Talk Radio Show: Are you unemployed and stressed?
Dr. John Deri’s next Blog Talk Radio Show: Healthy Mind and Body will be on Wednesday, October 28, 2009 from 8-8:30 PM PST.
The topic of the episode will be: How to Cope with the Stress of Unemployment
Unemployed people tend to withdraw from others – social isolation results in depression and anxiety. Unemployment is not simply experienced as an adverse outcome of a weakened economy, but rather is felt to be a sign of personal inadequacy. Shame is a further complicating factor. It tends to cause a person to hide from others. Social withdrawal compounds the stress of unemployment, resulting in worsening depression and anxiety. A downward spiral happens: progressive loss of energy and demoralization can develop into near total paralysis.
During the show Dr. Deri will share how the following steps can help you to cope with the stress of unemployment:
➢ Maintain your social life
➢ Schedule your time wisely
➢ Be flexible – relax your grip on your “identity”
➢ Deepen your spiritual life
➢ Ask for help if you need it
