Worrying about money is one of the biggest sources of stress for a lot of people, especially at this post-Christmas time of year. But there are several ways you can start to reduce money-related stress in your life:

  • Get educated about personal finance & your own financial situation by calling your friendly credit union
  • Build up an emergency fund
  • Start paying off your debt
  • Consolidate or reduce bills where you can
  • Create a new account just for bills
  • Think about putting some extra away in your superannuation
  • Ignore daily stock market updates – investing is for the long-term (especially for superannuation)
