Mindset Matters With Angela Cheruseo HEALTH IS YOUR WEALTH Many surveys show that stress affects your energy levels and so affects your productivity. Science tells us that prolonged stress is linked to many different diseases; it is toxic to our bodies and if we don’t make adjustments then we will later pay the price for living a life continually in a state of stress. Some people turn to unhealthy habits more due to stress... A survey carried out by the BNZ Bank in 2011, found that money is the highest worry for 67% of the population. But still, so many people do not bother to seek out the help required to sort out this area of their life. Why? Athlete have coaches, CEO’s and managers employ coaches, so why not get a coach for the area of finances? The alternative I see is that people would rather pretend that all is well to their friends and colleagues than get help and bare the truth to someone. It is easier to mask the symptoms of stress; to not let others know what’s going on, but this lasts only temporarily, the anxiety always returns (if it ever goes), if we do not get serious and deal with the cause.

How is your present lifestyle working for you? ... Really? What is this kind of behaviour costing you? Rate Yourself 0-5 for each of these: • How often do you find yourself worrying or frustrated about money? • Are you sleeping well each night? • Are you unhappy and working long hours to pay for the high end lifestyle you have created? • Do you get easily irritated if money comes up in a conversation? 4 Solutions to activate to avoid a money leak and so stress: • Create a spending plan/budget. If you have a savings account know what is it for? • Open up more bank accounts eg: emergency account, bill account, spending. At least 5 • Decide on an amount for food and all 'fun money' each week, leave only this in your eftpos account each pay day, once it's gone it's gone. • Take a good hard look at your money beliefs; any disempowering negative thoughts? What are they and how are they affecting your spending? Angela Miccio-Harris Angela Cheruseo NZ www.angelacheruseo.nz

Instead, some continue in a lifestyle where they cannot say no to their children or to invitations to go out often for a meal or purchase the latest fashion or deny themselves a holiday on credit. They cannot cut down on the groceries or the power bill. Instead, they are stressing themselves out, not sleeping well and working long hours to pay the bills and for 'luxury' items. This is so unwise. We must value our health more. A point to make here is that this area is your responsibility! Fail here, and you will not be good for much, or much benefit to those around you. If you do not take responsibility, why not? What is your mindset around health and stress? Issue #9 | The Inspired Guide | March 1st 2020
