Financial Stress Tips

If you find yourself dealing with financial stress, it can be an exceptionally difficult time. However, you mustn't let the stress take over your life. If the bills are piling up, there are steps you can take to reduce your stress and your debts.

The most important thing to keep in mind when you're faced with financial troubles is to make a plan and stick to it. If you need help with this plan, it would be in your best interest to seek out a financial planner.
 
Here are a few tips that can help you on your way:
 
1.    Don't spend money to relieve your stress. It's often tempting to reduce stress by going out for meals, entertainment, and other activities. This is clearly counterproductive. Instead, use some free stress relievers such as a warm bath, a good book, or a social event with friends at home.
 
2.    Accept your situation. Being unwilling to accept that you're dealing with a hard situation can increase your stress. In many financial scenarios, you're unable to control the situation. However, once you surrender control and accept it, you'll feel better knowing that you can only do what you can to improve your financial outlook. It may take time, and that's okay!
 
3.    Don't be risky. If you have investments that may be on the risky side, it may be time to switch them to more of a sure bet. This security alone may ease your financial stress.
 
4.    Discuss your problems with family. If you have a spouse, make sure you keep the lines of communication open. Many marriages suffer during times of financial stress, but with honest communication and careful planning, you can keep your marriage and family happy.
 
5.    Stay Organized. Make lists and keep a calendar. It's important to schedule time for relaxation, too. You'll need some time where you can enjoy yourself without worrying about anything - especially your financial troubles.
 
Have a Plan
 
Simply having a plan to improve your financial problems can reduce your stress level. Plans and goals will help you keep things in perspective and show you that you're making progress towards a better life.
 
You don't need to do this alone. There are many professionals available to help you create a successful financial plan, even in your current situation.
 
Here are some items you may want to review before forming your plan:
  • If you find that you're spending more than you're making, find ways to cut expenses.
  • See if you can pick up a part-time job or implement other ways to add to your income.
  • Look into refinancing options for your current loans.
  • Start using your debit card instead of a credit card.
Maintaining Your Health
 
People often forget how important it is to maintain your health. When your body is dealing with any kind of stress, it can take a toll if you don't take steps to relieve it.
 
Next time you feel exceptionally stressed out, become aware of the state of your body. You'll likely notice that all of your muscles are tense. Take a few moments to relax your muscles and take a few deep breaths.
 
While you may not have control of your financial situation, you do have control over how you feel about it. Focus on taking action to do what you can to improve your situation and know that better days are ahead.

  The Kaizen challenge was invaluable in my life. Even my family is picking the fruits of my work, and now I want to enable them as well to create for themselves what Hannes helped me to create, and what we enticed them with.   In all areas of my life I feel under control, I know for certain where I am going, and I feel that I am making progress. These feelings are, as many would say, “invaluable” and a feeling that money can not buy.   It is one thing to have and... Read more...

We started off badly with a poor telephone system that could not function properly over the internet followed by an electricity crisis, but after investing in ourselves we enjoyed the Kaizen Challenge very much. It has really changed our whole outlook and mindset on life, in so many ways. In the first place we realized Read more...

It is like a door that has opened.  I can now see what was holding me back. I would never have stumbled upon this secret if I was not in the right frame of mind and if it was not for the Kaizen Challenge. I did not know or was not aware that God is the Read more...

The Kaizen Challenge really opened my mind to understanding how we are living other people dreams for ourselves. How we have stopped thinking and questioning what is being spoon fed to us. We are living in fear and confusion Read more...

The KAIZAN CHALLENGE did confirm a lot of the teachings that I have learned from Hannes Dreyer the last 3 years on the Property Course + Mentoring Course + Powermorping Workshop + Business and Marketing Development Workshop + Retire Quickly Workshop. I do come from an "old school" upbringing and some of these "teachings" were very foreign to me indeed!! By "old school" I was taught to be very sure not to make any mistakes by changing jobs or trying out risks!!... Read more...
