Coping with Economic Free Fall
How am I coping with the economic freefall that we are in? Physically, I am cleaning and cooking and sewing and quilting. We are gardening and I am learning home canning. We are paying off our one remaining debt—our mortgage and building up our emergency fund from $6,000 to $7,000. That is what we are actively doing. Emotionally/mentally I am dealing with it by consciously limiting the time that I listen to the neverending bad news and listening to beautiful music instead. Also, I am consciously focusing on gratitude for my many blessings. That is how I am dealing with it--how are you coping?
