The looming IRS tax deadline may be stressful for many Americans. Stress related to money can increase reliance on the unhealthy behaviors that many people already use to cope with everyday stressors, such as making poor diet choices, smoking, drinking or being inactive. Strategies to manage financial stress include: identifying and defining money stressors, recognizing how you deal with financial stress, understanding what money means to you, finding healthy ways to manage your stress, and asking for professional support, such as a financial planner. If you continue to be overwhelmed by financial stress, you may want to speak to a psychologist who can help you address the emotions behind your money behaviors, manage stress, and change unhealthy behaviors.
