Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


Economic problems became a major focus of the media and source of anxiety for consumers at the end of 2008.

And at the start of a relatively new year, the issue does not seem to be improving, with more and more shops and business forced into administration and people cutting back on everyday spending.

However, it’s not just the wider business world that has been hit by the economic downturn – the whole Caribbean have been affected too, both on a local and national scale.

The ungoing protests in Guadeloupe and Martinique in recent weeks have highlighted how difficult some people are finding it to cope with the effects of the financial crisis. Across the entire Caribbean, people have been forced to adjust their budgets and lifestyles.

So what adjustments have you been making to cope with the financial difficulties, and have you made any changes to deal with the credit crunch? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

When fatigue hits you, how do you wind down? Blogger Jonathan Fields of “Awake at the wheel” suggests ten ways to rejuvenate your body and mind. Refresh yourself by taking a midday power nap. Play games that require intense concentration. Write thing down is also a good idea. Listen to good music. Also, just take a break just to breathe:

The way you breath directly reflects your levels of stress. When we’re in high-alert, stressed states we tend to take faster, shallower breaths. In fact, this can become so exaggerated, it can lead to hyperventilation and even leave us unconscious. When we’re calm and relaxed, though, our breathing tends to be slower, deeper and less labored.

Jonathan’s advice is pretty sound and can certainly help to boost your brain. What techniques do you use to relax? Share them in the comments.
