Money is a powerful thing. American novelist Louise Mensch once said, “Money gives you the power to do whatever you want to do. I like the idea of being in complete control of my life”.

The truth is, planning and managing your money can improve your financial wellness status. Improving your financial wellness status is powerful; it can help you sleep better at night and reduce your financial stress. International research found that a strong relationship exists between a person’s financial health and physical health, meaning that a reduction in financial stress will improve your physical health.

Physical wellness and financial wellness are indeed connected

If you are physically healthy – exercise often, eat healthily and get enough sleep, then your chances of being financially healthy are better. Also, because you are healthier, you’re more likely to reduce the money you spend on health, making more money available for other needs.
