Financial wellbeing is about feeling secure and in control of your day-to-day finances. It’s having enough money to pay your bills, with a plan to deal with unexpected costs. It’s about feeling confident that the plans you've made for your financial future are in line with the goals that you set.
Financial wellbeing is one piece in the overall spectrum of wellness. When one piece of the spectrum is jeopardized, you may feel it in other areas.
In fact, poor financial wellbeing can have negative effects for our mental and physical health and our relationships. On the other hand, people who enjoy good financial wellbeing tend to be happier, more confident and more productive at work.
Many people find it very difficult to talk candidly and openly about money with their family or friends. Money and finances are a common source of stress. Talking about money with a trusted friend, or family member or financial advisor is good for you, and may help you to manage your stress. Most importantly it will help get you on track to plan your financial future more effectively.
