Right now many are feeling panic. When overwhelmed by panic your mind cannot be as efficient in figuring out how to deal with your particular problem. It is very worth it to take time out to calm your mind. Deep breathing, exercise, a warm bath, distraction with music or comedy. Try not to watch the stock market every second because it will not help, but it will fill you with anxiety. If you find yourself really hopeless or unable to sleep or eat, concentrate or constantly filled with fear then it is time to see a professional because you may be suffering from either depression or an anxiety disorder. Treatment can help.
