For example, if you have always been a go-getter and self-motivated, managing the money and dealing with some money issues can very well cause your health to begin deteriorating. Before you know it, you could be experiencing repeated headaches, even coughing and sore throat. The body behaves in an interesting way because people internalize their stress. I can easily look at my brother and see by his “GRAY HAIR” on his head that he stresses a lot. He is young and his head is full of gray hair.
My Motto: Change the things you can and let go of the things you cannot.
Stress can increase your heart rate and blood pressure. Imagine if all the people who were on high blood pressure medication got their finances in order and their eating style. Would there be a need for high blood pressure medication? I don’t think so. Money stress whether it is a shortage of money, overspending or even secret spending. That will affect your health and your love life.
Stress causes several things to happen in the body. It can increase your heart rate and your blood pressure. This causes stress on your heart – the body’s hardest working muscle. Stress can also alter the levels of hormones in your body.
The hormone cortisol is increased when you undergo stress. Cortisol can cause problems such as increased weight gain and weight gain around the midsection of your body. This type of weight gain can cause problems by putting even more physical stress on your heart and make you feel uncomfortable joint pain.
Stress can also give you sleepless nights. Instead of falling gently into a restful sleep, you may find yourself tossing and turning all night long. When you finally do fall asleep, you may have problems staying that way. When your body is sleep deprived, you’re more like to gain weight, have difficulty concentrating, and reduce the success with which you complete daily tasks such as driving.
And while you have physical symptoms from stress that can lead you to have physical health problems, stress is even more noticeable when it comes to your mental and social health. Stress can cause problems such as anxiety and depression that prevent you from taking charge of a situation and improving your health.
When there are money issues, it may be difficult for the other spouse to even think about intimacy. People do not like each other, some go to bed angry while others sleep apart. If you get to the root cause of the financial issue and address it together, then the intimacy will return. What is key is that it must be the focus of both the husband and wife to make sure they don’t let their financial stress and strain become bigger than their love for one another.
