I am still trying to work on building a sound budget and creating different streams of money. So it is important for me to track how and why I am spending money. If you are stressed, you can be careless with your money and over spend. You have to identify what is stressing you, so you can deal with that problem. If you do not deal with your problems, it will affect everything you do. You do not want to be broke and stressed. Here is the information that I found on stress and spending.
FoxNews.com wrote, “Stress increases levels of dopamine, a brain neurotransmitter that plays an important role in reward-seeking behavior (this dopamine release partly explains why stress is associated with drug addiction). Stress makes you gravitate towards positive and rewarding stimuli and steer clear of the negative and punishing.”
Think before you make any decisions about your money when you are stress. This is why budgeting is so important. The more you track. The more you control your money. You have to make sure that you have enough money for all of your living expenses before investing any money. Now you know that ten percent of your pay has to go into your savings. If you believe in tithe and offerings, you have to put that in your budget too. But try not to do any impulsive spending. If you are stress try relaxing yourself before making any decisions. If you control your impulsive spending, you can save yourself a lot of money.
