Poor mental wellbeing is when your emotions impact your day to day activities in a negative way.
To ensure you check in on your own mental health, the below are some signs of having a poor mental state:
- You might spend money you don’t have to make yourself feel better
- You feel anxious when you open a bill or when you have to address anything related to money
- You find it hard to make effective decisions
- You are unable to prioritise
If you feel anxious about speaking to people or dealing with incoming letters and bills in person you can start to think about taking advantage of online banking services or simply call your bank.
You may have mismanaged money in the past which can lead to some sort of shame. Ignore that and know that everyone makes mistakes and each day is a new day.
Using a budget tracker here will help you stay focused and be aware of your mood swings and bad spending habits.
Stay focused and pull through. Speak to someone you trust. Your financial journey should not be a lonely one!
