Stress & well-being

Understanding the impact of Financial Stress on our Well-being

April 2, 2024

April marks Stress Awareness Month, and it's time to spotlight a common yet often overlooked culprit behind many of our daily stresses: financial worries. Sasha says,

I wish people stopped talking about debt as though it's about numbers.

Though we might try to downplay its significance, the truth is that money matters. It can disrupt our sleep, sour our moods, strain our relationships, and even isolate us from our social circles.

Money worries can lead to sleepless nights and negatively impact our relationships. It's a vicious cycle that can spiral out of control, as declining mental health makes it even harder to manage finances. It can feel daunting at the start, but the sooner you engage, the sooner you can tackle it.

But there's hope.

Money Sweetspot is on a mission to break the cycle of financial stress, offering you the tools and support needed to regain control and peace of mind over your finances. We recognise the immense courage it takes to face the challenges of debt, especially in a world where financial burdens can often carry undue shame.

We are pioneering a new approach to lending by offering financial education alongside loan repayment. Everyone deserves to learn about money management while paying down their debt, empowering them to get out of debt quicker and achieve greater financial freedom.

What does financial well-being look like to you?

There isn't one definition, but with our customers there is a common phrase

"I can breathe again."

Join us this April for Stress Awareness Month as we explore effective strategies to manage financial stress, ensuring it doesn't affect our health and happiness.

Check out these gems:

  1. The Anxiety Trust has some great free resources to help, including self guided courses and tools. You can check them out here
  2. And an awesome mini-masterclass from our financial education partner Nudge

Let's embark on a journey toward financial well-being, one step at a time.
