This dimension focuses on your attitude toward money, commitment to setting monetary goals for future needs, developing sound financial habits, and effectively using tools to manage financial resources. Being financially healthy is not about how much money you make, but rather how you manage what you have.
While financial well-being is not often considered when discussing health, it can be a significant source of stress which can affect the other dimensions. Studies find that people who don’t feel in control of their finances are likely to be less healthy than those who feel “financially secure.”
