#SecureTheBag: Get Your Money, Mental Health & Life In Order Featuring Patrice Washington
Jun 04, 2018
“#Securethebag” is what we constantly see and hear on social media yet so many of us are unfilled and putting on a facade. Did you know that there is a connection between your finances and mental health? So, if you want to really secure the bag, make sure your mental health is in check!
In fact, some individuals with bipolar disorder go on shopping splurges when they are in a manic episode. 86% of people who participated in a Money and Mental Health survey of nearly 5,500 people said that their financial situation made their mental health problems worse. Financial difficulties are linked to low mood, anxiety, guilt, panic attacks, insomnia, suicide ideation, and self-harm. Not to mention, stress can cause a heart attack and so many other health problems.
To help me with today’s episode, I am joined with American’s Money Maven & Financial Expert Patrice Washington of The Redefining Wealth Podcast. Patrice is a nationally recognized best-selling author, featured columnist, television commentator, transformational speaker, spokesperson, radio host and leading authority on personal finance. Patrice is committed to redefining the term “wealth”, encouraging women to have “wealth” in all aspects of their lives by pursuing their dreams, being fulfilled, and earning more without ever chasing money. Patrice’s wisdom on money matters has been tapped as a recurring voice by national brands such as NBC, FOX News, Black Enterprise, The Huffington Post, Essence Magazine and more. She’s been profiled by The New York Post, SUCCESS Magazine and Women of Wealth Magazine and is most known as the personal finance voice of the top-rated and nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Radio Show where she hosts her own weekly segment, Real Money Answers with Patrice Washington.
