I wasn't suggesting that you do what I do. I was simply pointing out that you are not the only person on the planet struggling with stress.
That being said, since you are not working now, you might as well take on pocket-jobs to bring in some income or improve your quality of life.
Work-study at a yoga studio, for example, will teach you some skills for handling stress and make your body feel better. You'll probably have to do light cleaning in exchange for classes.
Dog walking or dog-sitting, as another option, will bring in a little extra income, get you some movement, and also some quality time with animals which decreases stress. Is it enough to "make a living?" Maybe, I have no idea -- it honestly depends. But, until you find a job that pays what you want or need, this is at least some income coming in to offset some stress in terms of income.
Other pocket jobs include house cleaning, general handy-person jobs, gardening and yard work, doing basic walk-around work (ie, handing out flyers to different offices and such -- we are hiring a person to help us with this) . . . there are all kinds. We're lucky in that there's a local network here through a website. I can post a job with the amount I'm willing to pay, and with this, I can also find jobs that I'm willing and able to do (and earn a bit of extra cash).
I just find that it takes some economic pressure off to do some side gigs.
