Natural Stress Relief Tip: Tread The Path To Financial Freedom!

Be smart about debt! It is the key to financial freedom.

WiseSpenderI don’t know about you, but one of my main goals in life is achieving financial freedom and natural stress relief from money problems. I don’t need to be a millionaire, but I do need to be debt free! I am excitedly looking forward to the day when I have all my finances under full control and I am working hard toward that goal.

Each day brings a new opportunity to make responsible decisions about money.  What that means for me is that I treat financial wellness with the same importance as I do my physical, mental and emotional wellness.  I make it a priority each day, just as I would make healthy eating and sufficient rest a daily priority.  When it comes to financial wellness, I structure cues to remind me that I am committed to being a wise spender and saver.

My main cue is to weigh whether something is a want or need. Before spending a cent, I ask myself questions about the purpose of the purchase. It’s amazing how often something turns out to be a WANT instead of a Need.  I realize that there is actually very little that we need each day, other than the basic necessities of life. I’ve discovered the basic expenses that every woman should include in her budget  to stay in track financially.

When I determine that something is a want, I avoid making the purchase. I know that it is important to make myself happy. But I also know that something for my happiness still has the same effect when I purchase it later on, rather than give in to impulse spending which may send me spiraling into debt!

I am also committed to only acquiring what I am able to buy with cash ( or what I can pay off on my credit card in full at the end of the month). The credit monster is my greatest foe. I racked up high levels of credit card debt and spent the last 5 years paying it off, so I avoid using credit cards when I am unable to repay them.

Today, I acknowledge that the path to financial freedom is sometimes challenging. It takes time, patience and discipline to go from being a carefree spender, to becoming a wise spender and a diligent saver. But I am dedicated to keeping it as smooth as possible. My strategies for staying on the right side of debt are effective enough to guide me. Learning and implementing effective money management strategies is the first step in the right direction.  Applying those money management tips consistently is a guarantee for success!  I am determined to continue treading the path to financial freedom and to build a happy, balanced stress-resilient life!
