Did You Know Women Suffer From Higher Money Stress Rates Than Men?

One of the most important skills we can learn in life is how to manage money, especially if we want to reduce the stress levels in our lives.

I think that most of us already know on a very personal level that money is one of the biggest stresses in your lives ... or to be more specific, the LACK of money is guaranteed to stress us out when there is too much month left at the end of the money!

When you think of money stress, you may think that men traditionally take on the most.

But new research shows that women actually suffer from higher money stress rates than their male counterparts.

The truth is that women, especially women who fall into the baby boomer generation, are more worried about money than men.

This could be for many reasons.

For example, women are more likely to need to draw from investments to pay for child-related expenses.

Women also tend to make less money dollar for dollar than men in salaried jobs.

All of this leads to more concerns over money problems.

And beyond just personal money concerns, worries about the failing economy tend to affect women more than men as well.

So what’s a girl to do when the economy is tanking?

It’s good to be informed about what’s going on in the world, but it’s important not to become obsessed with the grim news.

Go ahead and read the paper every day, but then put it down and move on with your day.

The global or national economy is vast and complex.

It can be overwhelming to see world events occurring and have no control over them.

Instead of focusing on what you can’t impact, focus on the financial areas that are within your control.

Make sure that your household is doing the best to keep expenses down and put money into savings for emergencies and long-range plans.

Teach your family about money-management so that they’ll be prepared to enter the world independently.

Learn about financial management and all the ways to improve your personal finances in the current economic climate.

Believe it or not, there are job markets that are doing quite well and investments that make a lot of sense in this economy.

Take care of yourself as well. It’s easy to let go of your exercise routine or healthy diet when you’re stressed.

Instead, focus on staying healthy and reducing your stress through physical activity and healthy eating.

This will improve all areas of your health and even help you to let go of your money worries.

The economy is in a downward cycle right now. The good news is that it will improve at some point.

You need to hold on and wait for the economic recovery that is certain to happen in the future.

Instead of focusing only on negative things, try to find the silver lining in the current market.

I agree...
by: Susan

I think that women are often better money managers than men.

And that means they are more conscious about where the money goes, so that means they are not as carefree about throwing it about.

More women should learn how to control their finances if they are ever going to get ahead in life and create an investment portfolio

How True
by: Helene

Hi Susan, I know that I certainly wish I had started learning about money management much earlier in life.

My retirement would have been a lot faster and simpler if I had developed the skills earlier than I did.

Thanks for your visit and comment, much appreciated!

I recently discovered this site and I can tell you that my life has not been the same. I now come here EVERYDAY and spend at least 1 hour.

I used to spend that time browsing online fashion and beauty magazine which just means that I spend more. Now I have replaced that habit with coming here.

In future I will think about contributing articles as well. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! and God bless"
