Panic And Anxiety In The Financial Markets - Dr. Laurie Pappas Offers Practical Advice To Help Alleviate The Fear

Bankruptcy, loss of retirement income, our children's futures destroyed - these are the dark pictures our minds paint for us when we hear bad economic news. There is no way to stop the seesaw action in the financial marketplace, but there is a powerful way to overcome the anxiety this produces

Every tick downward in the financial marketplace creates a corresponding uptick in the anxiety levels of investors worldwide. Bleak scenarios, often fueled by gossip or the media, only serve to increase our fears. Dr. Laurie Pappas offers practical advice on overcoming anxiety in her new book, 'The Loving Heart: Navigating the Journey from Conflict to Peace'. She is now offering a limited number of no-charge consultations.

"It is so easy," stated Dr. Pappas, "to listen to the news, talk with friends and neighbors about it, read the blogs and tweets about it, and buy into whatever emotion that accompanies this news. In the case of the recent market drop, it seems that fear is running rampant, and the response many have is to let fear, worry, and angst control most of their waking moments.

"There is another way. The mind of the human being is the most powerful instrument we have. We have command over our thoughts. We don’t have to buy into mass anxiety. We can keep our thoughts reigned in instead of placing our minds “out there” in the future. We don’t really know what will happen, but somehow we insist that we do. 'We will be bankrupt, we won’t be able to pay our bills, we won’t have enough for retirement, we won’t be able to pay for our kids’ schooling etc. etc.”

"Not necessarily so. We can each use the power of our minds to remain calm – to believe in the ability of our country to put itself back together, and in our capacity to be prosperous. We can choose to think positively. We will have everything we need and more. We needn’t read bad news right now, nor spend time focusing on others’ fears. We are our own masters and we can choose our beliefs regardless of what others say."

Dr. Pappas presents her approach in 'The Loving Heart: Navigating the Journey from Conflict to Peace'. The book is supplemented by a workbook entitled 'The Loving Heart Companion'. Dr. Pappas has included over 30 years of observation and wisdom gained from personal experiences, as well as working with students, clients, family members and colleagues.

Dr. Pappas is offering a no charge consultation to the first three people who contact her with a request. Those who sign up for her email list receive daily inspirational messages to help them reprogram their minds to achieve greater happiness and peace. Participants also receive articles about once per month and a calendar of Dr. Pappas's classes. More information is available at her website.
