Weak Swiss Franc


This is one of those things that really does not currently have any influence on my life, but seems to bother me every now and then.

Coming from a € country, I have the bad habit of looking at the currency rates every now and then. Our SFr. or CHF or whatever you wish to call it is not doing very well against the €. Yes, I know the influence on export etc. but to me it seems to mean that I earn less than before. This is, I am stupid enough to convert prices to € even though I do not currently have any income in €.

Does anyone else have the same kind of (mental) problem? If so, how do you manage it? Can we find any good impacts on personal level in this situation (forgetting the exports etc.)? Could we even benefit somehow, having the ability to do our finances in both currencies (bank relationship in both € and CHF land)?
