Are you stressed about your personal finances? Is this stress keeping you up at night or distracting you at work? You’re not alone. According to MetLife’s 17th annual U.S. Employee Benefit Trends Study, the number one source of stress among members of the U.S. workforce is personal finances, despite the fact that 6 in 10 employees report that they are in control of their finances. Something’s not adding up.
This financial stress can quickly spread to other areas of life, eventually affecting work performance and even physical health. A great place to start is educating yourself about healthy financial habits and the useful resources available to you. Even small adjustments can make a big difference and set you up for a lifetime of financial success.
