    journaling exercises blog post from new ebookDo you control your money, or does your money overwhelm you? Many of us have a love/hate relationship with the stuff (we love having it, but we hate having to worry about it), and we fall into unhealthy habits that are detrimental to our health and happiness in the long run.

    When it comes to money managing, does any of this sound familiar?

    • Money stresses you out, so you try not to think about it and hope someone else will magically pay off your debt and set aside savings for your retirement.

    • You are a spender with a problem staying within your budget limitations (your motto is “buy now, repent later”).

    • You are notorious for being a penny-pincher, and even when you do spend money, you have a hard time enjoying it.

    • You have a lot of issues with money because of the way you were raised, and you are having a hard time overcoming your past.
