Steps to Reducing the Stress of Colorado Springs Bankruptcy, Debt, Foreclosure

With the economy continuing on a downward spiral, millions of people are battling debt, foreclosure andbankruptcy in Colorado Springs and across the country. For many people, the stress can be overwhelming.

Medical experts have long warned that stress is a major catalyst for a number of serious and potentially life-threatening physical ailments, including weight gain, heart disease, gum disease, gastrointestinal problems and more.


It's a vicious cycle because the more stressed you are, the more your health suffers and the more you end up shelling out on health care - almost twice as much as someone who is carefree, according to researchers with the Health Enhancement Research Organization.

Many of the financial troubles you face can be addressed with help from an experienced Colorado bankruptcy attorney. Tackling your personal financial struggles with someone who has helped thousands of people in similar situations will not only augment the balance on your bank statements, it will also improve your well-being.

In addition to taking this crucial step to free yourself of these financial burdens, there are other steps you can take to alleviate these concerns.

First, seek help from your employer. According to a 2010 study by Buck Consultants, nearly three-quarters of all U.S. employers offer some form of wellness program, which encompass everything from discounted yoga classes to reimbursements for gym memberships. Stepping up your work-out routine will help to clear your mind and give you confidence to keep that same momentum in other aspects of your life.

If your company doesn't offer this type of reimbursement, look on sites like Groupon or search for trial memberships that might give you a few weeks free. Many gyms also want new customers, so they may be willing to cut you a deal directly if you ask.

Secondly, consider talking with a counselor. Many employers offer free or reduced-cost access to counselors on a weekly or monthly basis. Some also offer group sessions, which specifically address techniques to manage stress.

And finally, take some time each day to breathe deeply. A recent study conducted by researchers at Harvard found that meditating each day improves a person's memory and reduces stress. Even a few minutes a day can make a huge difference.

    "Upon my first visit to the office, I was in an unfamiliar part of town.  I was also bewildered and experiencing anxiety.  I was not even sure I should be there or how to proceed in a very new situation where my back was against a wall.  The first person I met in the office was the lovely receptionist.  I have to say that she has the absolutely right demeanor and is extremely successful in her position.  She has a slight but comforting smile and persona.  She is confident but not arrogant in processing the needs of clients.  I do not feel that this is a small achievement in any way.  I feel this person in many ways sets the tone for the office as the gate keeper of the office and emotional clients.  She definitely helped me thru this process with her silent and dedicated service to me, the clients and the office."

    "Upon entering Steve's office, one immediately knows they have entered his "zone".  Steve will talk, think, contemplate, then act.  He then spins his chair around, garbs paper, types on the computer and zaps something thru the printer.  Occasionally, a document needs to be scanned or something else from outside the office is needed, and Zap someone appears without having to yell down a hall or call out.  There is definitely a team here that is in sync.  There may be a question out of the blue suddenly or a brief conversation about something else.  The whole time, Steve is on point.  I felt from day one, a trustworthy confidence in placing my future in his hands.  I was not wrong.  I also never once felt rushed, brushed off or that my concerns were not his.  I felt that Steve is in this for me and his clients.  I have a debt, gratitude and confidence in Steve and the Swift team that far exceeds the fees pain."
