Having been laid off since last Oct., I believe the article is true. However, I am disappointed that the article promised cushions to reduce the impact of ill effects on my health, but it did not produce any useable information.
SPARK has been helpful for me personally with my mental and physical health. It is the only place where I can connect with others in my situation, age, and interests.
The information presented in the article is demographic, talking about *trends*, not certainties! I believe the SPARK promotes strategies for taking gentle care of ourselves and counters what would otherwise be an even MORE devastating results of unemployment.
What do folks think? How is your SPARK lifestyle helping you to weather your job loss?
