Can money problems affect your health? Yes!
Money impacts so many factors in our lives, from the food we buy, to the car we drive or the house we live in. But what we don’t like to admit (or acknowledge) is how much money (and especially debt) can actually affect our health.
It’s been proven that people who suffer from high stress due to debt were much more likely to suffer from health problems than those who weren’t dealing with money troubles.
Stress; it can be a helpful and powerful motivator in your life, especially if you have a deadline that you need to meet and you are accountable for getting it done. However, most of the stress in our lives is the negative kind. We’re worried about relationships, our careers, our community, and about half of us are worried about money. This can be stress over paying your bills, saving for the future, or even buying groceries. All of this can lead to us having health issues due to worrying.
Smoking, drinking, overeating, insomnia can all be symptoms of money stress. When you’re living paycheck to paycheck or trying to get out from under debt, most of your money has to go toward the basics of living, such as food and shelter. You often have to cut corners, which means there’s little left over for other aspects of life, including self-care.
