There is a definite correlation between physical, emotional and financial well-being – or, what could be collectively referred as our “wallet wellness.”
Just consider the fact that money, work and the economy – in that order – are our leading causes of stress. Stress, in turn, forces a million people to miss work every day at an average daily cost of $600 to employers and an average annual cost of $15 billion to the economy. Then there’s the $62 billion in productivity that we lose annually to sleep deprivation – a common side effect of stress – and the $200 billion to $300 billion price tag associated with stress-related illness.
