Our attitude towards money and how we approach spending can make or break our finances and stress levels.
As a result of the cost of living crisis, individuals worldwide are experiencing the emotional pressure of financial instability, causing many to make difficult financial decisions. The current economic context has meant we’ve moved from a culture of ‘spend today rather than save for tomorrow’ to ‘what do I need to cut to make sure my bills are paid’. Not only are our bank accounts being strained, but it’s also negatively impacting our wellbeing and productivity.
Recent research has found that 70% of UK employees are now worrying more about money and 76% of these individuals are suffering with worse mental health as a result (Wagestream, 2022).
The good news is that money is a learned behaviour, and what is learned can be unlearned.
Financial wellbeing is no longer just an individuals responsibility, what is even more important now is to think collectively. With inflation, increasing prices, and interest rates out of our control and making headlines, this is the time to normalise the conversation about financial stress to reduce the stigma and build supportive networks at work.
In this workshop, you’ll discover the psychological element of financial health. We’ll help you identify and understand your money scripts which are the unconscious beliefs about money rooted in childhood that ultimately shape your spending. This masterclass will give you the tools to feel in control of your finances, understand the psychology of spending, reduce financial stress and allow you to take a more considered approach to ensure you live within your means.
The content on scripts was quite useful, I actually found the workshop reassuring and it's probably going to lead to me maintaining similar behaviour whilst still being aware of the pros and cons of other approaches/scripts.Workshop learner, 2018
