On the internet you read plenty of blogs with people promising you help with debt, but very few of these blogs focus on the non-financial impact of debt.

According to an article earlier this year, there is a clear link between your financial health and your mental health. In fact, the more debt you carry the worse your overall health probably is.

Here at Debt Cutter we constantly talk to people whose debt has spiralled out of control.  We were able to help with debt in their circumstance, but many people believe just because they aren’t struggling, they aren’t being affected.

But this is not the case.

Even if you are not struggling to keep up with repayments, the chances are this added financial hardship is affecting your health. One of the biggest areas where we can be affected is with our relationships.

Just have a think about it, how many times have you fought with your partner over finances?

Relationships are such a key part of our life, that if you don’t try to resolve these issues it could have serious long-term impacts on your health. Check out some of our previous blogs on how to talk to your partner about finances:
