Unsurprisingly, 59% of us feel that our financial health impacts our well-being.
And one of the major causes of financial stress is a sense of being out of control. Just 4 out of 10 people feel as though they have control over their finances.
This page shares some honest views about money and some ideas to help you take back a bit of control.
"You feel, as adults, we should be more on it".
Anna told us she felt 'ashamed'. John leaves it all to his wife, the 'straight man' but has a nagging feeling that he should be doing more.
And Sian thought that 'to invest and get anything meaningful, you have to have this huge chunk of cash.' The enormity of it all meant she never got started. So she had never investigated or found out more, quietly worrying about the lack of savings she had or any sort of retirement plan. Sound familiar?
Having a sense of financial control is knowing what to expect and avoiding nasty shocks. It's a delicate balance between avoiding stressful short-term pinches with saving little and often for the future.
