7 ways to Survive a Recession

Written by Donna Schaper

The economy is in the doldrums, but you don’t have to be.  Here are 7 ways to get through and even thrive.


1
Mean it when you say "others are worse off than we are.”

Because it’s always true.


2
Make anxiety your enemy.

You need peace even more than you need money.


3
Learn to play cards with your friends, family and neighbors.

Even gamble a little, if you like.  Find low-cost forms of entertainment.


4
Structure your day and your budget in new ways, responsive to your changed situation. Don’t try to imagine that things are still the way they used to be.

They are not.  They have changed.  Respond, actively, to change.


5
Volunteer.

You may find the work you really love.


6
Enjoy the public library.

Browse the books, read a magazine, enjoy the quiet.  Take home a DVD to watch.


7
Take a long time eating supper.

Say a bigger prayer than usual for what is – with no begging for what is not.
