For our Thursday work segment, we're talking about how work, or the lack of it, puts a strain on mental health. Some health experts say that stress from a recession can negatively impact your mind and body. Stress on the economy can lead to stress in your body, in other words.  Joining us is our finance contributor Beth Kobliner, and Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo, a psychologist and physical therapist.

Dr. Lombardo's "GREAT" acronym for avoiding stress-related physical effects:

  • G for Gratitude
  • R for Relaxation
  • E for Exercise
  • A for Assist others
  • T for Take care of yourself
