These difficult times can tip anyone’s boat, yet we have to find ways to cope. Take this quiz to see how well you are managing financial uncertainty.

T/F 1. I do my best to focus on the financial stability that exists in my life. It does me no good to obsessively worry about financial hits I’ve taken that I can’t do anything about.

T/F  2. It takes time to get used to diminished circumstances. I accept my feelings and give myself a break.

T/F  3. Fear plays a role in the stock market, and overly contracting as a consumer harms the economy. I invest and spend funds based on facts, not fear.

T/F  4. If I am suffering financially, I am facing the reality of my situation and taking appropriate steps to get back on top.

T/F  5. If I made questionable financial or business decisions, I acknowledged my responsibility, made any necessary amends or corrections, and moved on.

T/F  6. I don’t bury my head in the sand, but I keep my intake of bad news to a minimum.

T/F  7. When I feel anxiety, I talk to someone who doesn’t react to it—a peaceful friend or colleague who reminds me that contentment is possible.

T/F  8. I recognize that hard times breed efficiency and am taking the time to fix those inefficiencies I was putting off.

T/F  9. If I have unwanted downtime from work, I am using it well. I’m taking a class, brushing up my skills, pursuing creative projects or simply getting more rest.

T/F  10. I don’t rely on substitutes for good self-care, such as smoking, drinking, overeating or excessive TV/Internet viewing.

T/F  11. I discharge anxiety through exercise, or dissolve it with yoga or meditation.

T/F  12. To shift a bad mood, I seek healthy diversions, such as time with good friends or light-hearted movies.

T/F  13. I have plans for the future, both personally and professionally. Despite the economy, I’m confident I will thrive.

T/F  14. I seek the opportunities in today’s economic news. They are all around me; I have only to look.
