Yes, we all know it is stressful to lose your job. But does it hurt your long term brain health. Good news, a recent study examined this question and found little long term effects (at least for the majority of people). Now the one problem I had with the study was that is was conducted from 1984-2003, and it is possible since we are having a more severe unemployment problem currently that people losing their jobs now might have a tougher time mentally since it is also harder to bounce back and find another job. I guess we won’t know for several more years.
But here is to being resilent and bouncing back and move forward a full steam ahead.
