EP293 How to Cope with Financial Stress

Today we delve into the findings of the 6th Annual Financial Stress Index released by FP Canada, which reveals that money remains the number one stressor for Canadians. In this episode, we share actionable strategies to alleviate financial stress as we go beyond the numbers and engage in a candid discussion with  The Real Bottom Line host Wendy Brookhouse and Financial Therapist Aseel El-Baba.

You will learn the reasons behind the escalating stress surrounding finances, leading many to feel hopeless in their financial journey, as well as the sense of disempowerment that arises when we perceive our finances as being beyond our control. Listen in as we explain the significance of evaluating our income and shifting from a scarcity mindset to one of abundance.

“People are feeling as though their finances are outside of their control which is very dis-empowering. These are things we are in control of but because there is so much happening it is like a tornado sweeping us off of our feet and that is causing a sense of hopelessness when we lose touch with the things we are in control of.” – Aseel El-Baba
