Financial Stress

When two people come together they bring with them all their stress. Finances can  be a huge area of stress in a relationship especially when it comes to planning a future together. It is difficult to go from just worrying about yourself to figuring out how to financially build a life with someone else. Finances can be a sensitive subject so it is important to have a conversation face to face. Through this conversation you can discuss budgeting, savings, and investments.

As with any conversation there are communication difficulties. If you find yourself having issues with communication it can be helpful to speak to a counselor who can teach you those skills.

Spread the Smiles!

When feeling overwhelmed and stressed it is easy to feel that you are going through it alone. Support can be found all around you in a friend, teacher, parent, or even a complete stranger.

In today’s world so many people are plugged in, not just at work and home, but even in public while running errands or getting from point A to point B. Make an effort to unplug and get to know someone around you. It could be brief conversation with a stranger while waiting in line at the grocery store or even a smile and friendly wave to a neighbor. The small amount of effort from you could make a huge impact on another. Go about your day, but do not forget to spread the smiles!
