Financial stress can have major effects on your health. Stress, in general, can cause heart attacks, strokes, and many other serious health issues regardless of the source.
Are you stressed about your finances?
Financial stress can affect nearly every facet of your life, this we know. Chances are, if you’re reading this, you’ve experienced some level of financial stress yourself or you know someone who has. While we can agree that it affects you in some way, do you know exactly HOW financial stress can affect you physically? If you constantly find yourself consumed with much money you have (or don’t) and how you’re going to keep a roof over your head, get to work, and possibly feed your family than you could certainly develop one of several stress-related health conditions. If these conditions go unnoticed or untreated it could even result in very serious, sometimes life-threatening illnesses.
Financial stress affects your health in many ways and these health issues can affect your home life, career and make it feel that is impossible to ever turn things around. If any of these effects of stress are causing you stress, please, consult your physician immediately.
Two of the most common effects of financial stress are anxiety and depression. These two conditions usually go hand-in-hand. Each one is a debilitating condition that makes it hard to focus at work, spend time with your family, and keep up with your bills and other financial responsibilities.
