Financial health is no different to your physical health. Just as you would seek a remedy for a cold or flu, you should also seek a remedy for any negative financial symptoms that may be showing. Attending to common financial stress symptoms quickly can help you to avoid endless stress caused by credit provider harassment and legal action. In the same way that you would prioritise sorting out general health issues to avoid bigger problems down the line, so should you prioritise sorting out your financial problems.
