Stress is something that we all experience at some point. Whether it’s a work deadline, financial worries or something more serious.  Too much stress can affect our mood, our body and even our relationships.

There’s lots you can try to help reduce your stress levels:

  • plan ahead for stressful days or events – planning long journeys or making a list of things to remember can really help
  • use time-management techniques to help you take control
  • try talking about your feelings to a friend, family member or health professional.

So what can you do if you are struggling with your finances to the point where it’s affecting your mental health, or causing you an amount of stress you are struggling to deal with?

Here are some ways you can remove financial stress in your life:

  • Start a savings account, even if it’s only a little a month
  • Check your Direct Debits to see if you’re paying for services you don’t use
  • You can also see if paying some bills by Direct Debit can save you money
  • Why not find out if you are eligible for any additional benefits?
  • If you’re claiming Universal Credit you may be able to get a low-cost broadband package
  • Start planning your finances long-term
  • Make sure the food you buy goes as far as possible

You can also call the Derbyshire Mental Health Helpline for free, any time, day or night, on 0800 028 0077.
