Sixty-three percent of Americans say they feel financially confident, yet the number one source of stress — regardless of age or life-stage — is personal finances, according to a recent MetLife study. This disconnect between perception and reality can lead to uncertainty and stress. It can also prevent each of us from gaining a true understanding of our financial situation and preparing for the future.
According to the study, nearly 50 percent of employees live paycheck to paycheck, and only 6 out of 10 have a plan for how to spend their money and actually stick to it. This suggests many of us have trouble balancing unexpected expenses and planning for the future, two key elements of financial wellness.
Assessing your financial situation and figuring out how to take control of your money may seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t need to be. In fact, you can get started with just 4 simple steps.
The key to improving your financial health is to remember it’s a process. It won’t happen overnight. Like any other meaningful goal, it takes time and effort. But, by starting today with these basic steps and staying focused, you’ll be on the path to making your financial wellness a reality.
