The first step to managing financial stress is having the courage to actually do something about the situation. Many are scared to look at their bank account balance, but we need to make an honest evaluation of the situation by doing the following:
Once you have organized your accounts into a notebook or an excel sheet, set aside the time to track your expenses so that you'd be able to identify where you spend the most should you need to cut back.
Being able to direct and redirect your money will ultimately lead you to a healthier financial and emotional place.
It's likely that from all the financial planning you'll eventually get overwhelmed and think about giving up. Should that scenario happen, allow yourself to take a break and self-soothe. Afterwards, list down everything that you need to do and divide them into manageable tasks then allocate a certain amount of time to accomplish each task.
The goal here is to make financial planning less complex and more motivated to tackle them.
When feeling overwhelmed self-soothing is the best option anyone can take, however, make sure that your coping mechanisms won't negatively affect you.
Allow yourself to sit with the uncomfortable feeling and process it, possibly through journaling, exercise, or a hobby that relaxes you.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
