Focus on Your Financial Security

If you feel stressed or insecure about your finances, it can be difficult to focus and be your best in your career and other areas of your life. Studies find that those who feel financially secure are more likely to be healthier than those who don’t feel they are in control of their finances. Keep in mind that being financially healthy isn’t about how much money you make, but rather how you manage what you have. This dimension focuses on attitudes toward money, building sound financial habits and using tools to effectively manage financial resources.
