Dealing with Economic Hardship

Stress can be caused by financial issues. You may be embarrassed by your situation, or frustrated that there is no way to get out. Everyone has an opinion about financial hardship, regardless of whether they have experienced it. It can be difficult to cope when you feel that you have no support system.

Understanding Financial Stress

Financial stress is the emotional tension primarily related to money. Financial stress is not a unique problem for any group or person. It may be more common in households with lower income.

You will feel stressed if you don’t have enough money to pay your bills and rent or buy groceries.

There’s a possibility that people with lower incomes may be more stressed due to their job demands, as their jobs might not give them much time off. Some may have to work under unsafe conditions but are reluctant to quit for fear of not being able to support themselves financially as they search for other employment. This is a cycle that never ends, and only adds to the stress of those who are already stressed.

How financial stress affects your mental and physical health

The majority of people worry about their finances from time to time. Financial stress can be a problem if it affects your daily life. You might find that your worry about money makes you unable to enjoy or concentrate on other aspects of life.

Financial stress can have negative effects on your mental and even your physical health. Financial stress can cause anxiety, depression, behavioral change, such as avoiding social situations, or physical symptoms, like stomachaches and headaches.

How to Get Help

You should talk to someone about any aspect of financial hardship. You need to first work with someone that can help you organize your finances. It’s important to find someone who you can trust and who will listen to your concerns. It will help you to feel less alone.

Second, consult someone about your physical and mental well-being. If you are religious, you can speak to someone in your church or ask your employer if it pays for therapeutic services. It’s important to talk with your doctor, particularly if you are unable to sleep or eat.
