Financial and physical health often go hand in hand

Unemployed people are not the only ones suffering from financial stress in Florida, and it does not even really matter how much money you make. People from all walks of life find themselves struggling with overwhelming debt. The team at The Law Offices of George Castrataro, P.A., have worked with many who are seeking ways to reduce these burdens.

Fox News reports on a recent survey indicating that current financial circumstances were causing stress for nearly 50 percent of employed participants. Your body’s responses to your money worries could include:

  •          Cortisol release
  •          Increased heart rate
  •          Higher blood pressure
  •          Lower metabolism
  •          Memory and concentration issues

When these are compounded over time, you may suffer headaches, depression, anxiety, issues with your weight or your skin, or you may begin to have sleeping problems. With chronic stress, your chances of developing ulcers or other digestive issues, diabetes, and heart disease rise, and you also are at an increased risk of stroke.

While any of these conditions could send you to a doctor seeking relief, you may feel that the costs of seeking care would only make the financial difficulties that caused them worse. Even with health insurance, co-pays and deductibles can put medical help out of reach for some people.

Studies show that there are behaviors known to mitigate some of the severe physical issues caused by stress. These include a healthy diet and regular exercise, meditation and deep breathing, and other activities that lift your mood.

Improving financial health can sometimes be the key to physical recovery, and you may have several options for achieving this goal. More information about methods for obtaining debt relief is available on our web page.
