CHRISTMAS ANXIETY - OVER SPENDING

 

 

THE ANXIETY OF OVER SPENDING

 

As I have mentioned in my previous blog post, anxiety often comes from a feeling of not having the ability to be in control.  Many things we cant control in life; the weather, time, other peoples reactions,  however, one thing that we can control, is how much we spend over the festive period.  

If you are already struggling with the feelings of anxiety then festive occasions can make you feel even worse, especially if your financial issues are already a concern.
