Money talks. Or so they say.
If money talks, what exactly is it saying?
And how does money affect the health of our clients? Or even our own health?
As we work toward helping our clients to have the healthy and happy lives they envision, assessing how money influences their wellbeing seems like a prudent thing to do.
We often suggest clients complete an assessment of each area of their lives, but how often do we see inquiries about money and finances included?
Perhaps money should have its own place on the assessment tool. After all, couples often cite financial issues as the cause of relationship difficulties. Money issues can lead to depression and dealing with money can be downright stressful. A host of issues including insomnia, poor job performance, and eating issues may ensue because of money worries.
The American Psychological Association found that 72% of adults they surveyed said that money was the most significant source of stress in their lives.
