Stress and Finances: What is Your Health Worth?

Invest in yourself

Your health is one of your most important assets. Without a healthy body, functioning at your fullest potential isn’t just difficult, it’s near impossible. So when financial times are tough, investing in your health is the best thing you can do for yourself. Why? Because you can’t afford not to.

Invest in yourself and your health

Numerous studies have been conducted over the years on how stress affects our health, including financial stress. Some of the most common health problems people with financial stressors experience are:

  • Depression and anxiety, sometimes severe
  • Chronic headaches or migraines
  • Loss of sleep (insomnia)
  • Irritability / extreme mood swings
  • Digestive problems, including ulcers

Of course, if these problems continue long enough, they can lead to other emotional and physical health issues, including heart disease, cancer, and even suicide. That’s why none of us can afford to allow stress to take over our lives. It’s just not worth it!



From clients

Unemployment. Foreclosure. Bankruptcy. These and other economic hardships are all common sources of stress, and some of the leading causes behind many of my client’s health problems. But as one of my clients recently shared with me, sometimes you have to put yourself first. Here’s what she had to say:


“Probably the biggest obstacle to starting the program was financial.  I don’t think it was mindset at all. I was willing and open to it, but it just would’ve been the initial cost.  You know, I just made the decision to do it. That I was important enough to do it.  And I wanted to find out [about my adrenal function].  Sometimes doing what is good for you is taking ownership for what I need to do for myself and not putting a dollar sign on it, which is hard to do.  As a result of being in the program, I feel better.  I feel like I have better sleep patterns and better energy in the morning, which before I was more dragging myself out of bed.”


When asked why she recommends my program to other people, she said,

“I like the fact that it looks at the person as the whole person and not just a medical issue, and what can be done to figure out what’s going on.  The follow-through and the follow-up is good, too.”

Reap the benefits of investing in your health

I had another client tell me that finances were also a big obstacle for her, and how my program “is definitely a commitment.”  But she, too, has witnessed the benefits herself, enjoying more energy, especially in the morning and without the “2pm crash.”


Take action

Your health depends on the choices you make. So when stress interferes with your ability to engage in life, it’s time to take action and reclaim the energy, vitality, and happiness you once knew. Don’t let anything stand in your way.
