In the annual edition of the “Stress in America” survey, money and finance concerns are said to be the most significant source of stress in people’s daily lives. With financial concerns consuming people’s minds day in and day out, it sometimes causes them to miss (or consider skipping) doctor’s appointments, even when they needed some sort of health care. Stress and anxiety tend to increase naturally as you age, so it’s important that you work with a trusted financial professional to create a plan, understand your expenses, and to develop a strategy for income in your retirement.
Unless you stumble upon a large sum of money, financial planning is the best way to start reducing your stress. According to a study conducted by the American Psychological Association, having someone to talk with and confide in when making large, complex financial decisions tends to lower your overall stress level.
Emotional discipline is hard to develop, which is why setting goals and finding the right advisor to help you reach your goals is the most important step you can take towards reducing stress and building a safe and secure income for retirement. If there was a way to ensure that you would have income for the rest of your life, guaranteed, would you take it? Don’t go at it alone… Find emotional support from family, friends, and most importantly an expert financial professional in order to help you stay on-track toward a happy, healthy, and stress-free life in retirement.
