It depends on which expert you listen to and your own opinions but there are a lot of factors which go into being ‘healthy’. It’s an issue that is tough to define and different people have their own ways of getting themselves into what they would get their peak condition in terms of their all-round health.
Many believe that you need to be both physically and mentally fit in order to class yourself as completely healthy, others think that you need to be eating well and exercising regularly as well as being free from any illnesses. However, we’re all well aware of stress-related illnesses, the kind of problems that you might not be able to notice on the surface but are niggling away at us underneath and causing often severe health problems.
Financial stability is one of the main contributing factors towards stress related illnesses with people worrying how they’re going to afford to pay either their household or business bills each month. With fuel costs rising and energy suppliers showing no signs of dropping their prices any time soon it’s difficult enough to make your payments; then factor in fuel for the car, food shopping and keeping the kids in clean clothes that fit them and before long it’s easy to spend more time worrying about putting food on the table than actually enjoying life.
Some people will employ professional accountants like Alexander & Co in Manchester to take care of their finances for them, and that’s fine if they can afford to do that, but other people are forced to deal with their money on their own – and not everyone is very good at budgeting or being frugal with their spending.
When you’re working hard all month, pay day seems like the best reward you got possibly get, putting some money in the bank and making you feel like it was all worthwhile. Then the next bill comes through the letterbox and you’re back to square one worrying about repayments.
It soon becomes obvious, if you’re the person affected by this, that there is a serious link between financial stability and staying healthy. Those who have plenty of money and are able to make their repayments each month are much more likely to remain healthier than those who stress about their finances on a regular basis because it’s one less thing to stress them out. While their working and personal lives might have their own problems, they’re not worrying about their bank accounts.
Those who do concern themselves over money issues frequently present signs of stress by being anxious and even showing signs of depression because no matter what they try, they never seem to have enough money to live comfortably.
The only resolution that presents itself is to seek the help of friends and family, trying to find a resolution to your financial woes so that you can at least share the problem rather than having to deal with it on your own. When you try and cope with such a stressful issue, sharing the problem can feel like lifting the weight and you’re much less likely to develop any kind of stress-related illnesses.
