Manage Your Debt to Manage Your Health

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Money is one of the top sources of stress for Americans. You’ll be healthier overall if your finances are in order. One study found that those with the most health complaints also tended to have the highest debt ratios and to be the most worried about money.

If money is a source of stress in your life, take the necessary steps to resolve any outstanding issues.

·         Keep your bank accounts balanced.
·         Sit down with your family to make a budget.
·         Figure out how much you need to save.
·         Find ways to trim expenses.
·         Make plans to pay down your credit cards.

One of the most important things you can do in controlling financial stress is to know your numbers. You absolutely must know your “Survival Number” – that’s the amount you need to have each month just to pay all the bills. Contact me to request a simple tracking form to use for this.
