Financial wellbeing is about feeling secure and in control of your day-to-day finances. It's having enough money to pay your bills, with a plan to deal with unexpected costs. It's about feeling confident making plans for your financial future that are in line with the goals that you set.
Poor financial wellbeing has ripple-effects for our mental health and our relationships. On the other hand, people who enjoy good financial wellbeing tend to be happier, more confident and more productive at work.
Money and finances are a common source of stress. Talking about your state of finance with a trusted friend or family member is good for you, and may help you to manage your stress.
