Don't Worry, Be Happy -- Ask Noah

Tips for getting off the "Treadmill of Concern":

1. Don't stay glued to CNBC or Fox News. We get it the economy is bad. Enough said! 2. Remember you have more than others. When in doubt be grateful.

3. As I have said in previous articles, your net worth should not be your self worth.

4. Worrying leads to more worrying. It's a vicious cycle. Don't give it fuel.

5. You cannot change the past. You made the best possible financial decisions at the time.

6. Being overly anxious can lead to helplessness. Looking and feeling helpless is not an attractive quality.

7. Work with a cognitive behavioral therapist to discuss how negative thought patterns about money are affecting your feelings about life and altering your behaviors.

8. Take care of "you." Be good to yourself. Be it exercise, reading, collecting stamps, etc. Do what you enjoy.

9. Stay busy. Do not give yourself time to obsess over your finances. Remember: "They cannot hit a moving target!"

10. Never forget that time is precious. And we owe it to ourselves to spend it wisely.

Thank you for the question, and enjoy the weekend!

Have a profitable and peaceful week,
