I thought I can switch things up a bit and talk about a topic not many people discuss in this space. Personal finance can and should be about finding peace with your money in any way possible. When it all boils down to it, life is either about having peace or living in stress. I think 99% of people prefer peace. This is why I want to discuss how important it is finding peace in a financially crazy world.
Imagine how people feel living life paycheck to paycheck, do you think they live in peace? How would certain people feel if they did not have emergency savings? What about if people have high interest credit card debt that they can’t ever payoff? How about the new graduates who are burdened by 200 grand in student loan debt? These are all the financial worries that do not foster peace with finances. Lets begin to discuss how to find that peace we so desire.
Meditate once a week – prior to or after tackling a financial acitivity, for example when completing the monthly budget spreadsheet. With the myriad of reasons to stress out over budgets. this 1 mental exercise will relieve any negatives you might encounter. If you can meditate more often, I suggest you do it, and it will offer you the ability to tackle any financial problems you are having.
Get help even if you have to pay for it. Having someone guide you who is an expert in the field of finance and more knowledgeable than you will help you avoid stressful situations with money issues. That guidance is worth more than people think, and all you have to do is find someone that charges by the hour. Doing this will help you avoid spending too much on this financial service. A financial mistake can cost you thousands so why not pay hundreds to avoid them.
