My method...look at the portfolio on up days. Ignore it on down days. Certainly lowered my anxiety level.

How do many of you deal with the anxiety that goes with leaving a comfortable living to trusting that all will work out? I want to make sure I enjoy ER and not fret.

Really enjoy reading all of the forums.
OMG that is sooo me. I want to retire next year and I've run the numbers to the cows come home. I've increased my spending to levels that I know I wont reach unless I start running around with a Brazilian pool boy and I still come out ok.
One problem I have is that I read all these experts that say That I should be doing XYZ and then someone else says I should be doing ABC.

I have 100 times more anxiety now than when I was flat broke and in debt.

Lol, I find myself logging in more on down days - to buy more shares (Target Retirement Fund).
