Do you stress about money, about not having enough in retirement? Do you worry that you won’t be able to enjoy your retirement, and the impact that has on your family? Many of us spend time stressing about our financial future, especially when it comes to considering our retirement and how long our financial resources may last.
However, that stress could be costing you. Stressing over your financial position may well be taking away the most important thing about your retirement, your health. A recent study has reinforced the fact that stress impacts your health in a variety of ways. The study, conducted by Finnish researchers (Source: http://www.rodalewellness.com/health/stress-health-problems), confirms that the health outcomes for those who are stressed, and in particular those who are stressed by their financial situation, are worse than for those who report lower levels and instances of stress.
Financial planning helps. One of the key values of financial planning advice is that it aides in eliminating stress. It takes away the unknowns that currently exist in your financial life. One of the rewarding elements of providing financial advice is seeing the stress relief from the client’s perspective.
The Canadian Financial Planning Standards Council commissioned a longitudinal study of 15,000 people and the findings highlighted that people who engage a Certified Financial Planner experienced significantly higher rates of financial and emotional well-being.
