Lifestyle Debt

If you’re struggling with debt, you may have missed payments, debts may have gone to a collections agency and your stress levels are through the roof. Maybe you’re concerned about your credit rating and what to do next.

While your financial well-being is very important, have you given any thought to your mental health as well?

High Stress Can Impact Health

Debt can weigh heavily on a person's mental health. There are tangible consequences to letting stress run amok. Anxiety, worry, sleepless nights, arguments with loved ones over money — worries about debt can erode your peace of mind and even impact your physical health.

When we clear debt, it also reduces our stress levels. Taking care of debt can bring balance back to our lives and make life much easier in so many ways, including:

  • Higher self-esteem;
  • Enhanced mental and physical health;
  • Restored or better relationships, including relationships with one’s children;
  • Better work productivity;
  • Improved credit score.

Once your debts are cleared, you’ll be able to look at your budget in a completely different way. Instead of making payments to creditors for purchases you’ve made in the past, you can start planning what you really want to do with the income you earn.

This can include saving for:

  • Vacations
  • Retirement
  • Hobbies
  • Emergencies
  • Purchases
  • Self-improvement.
