According to wellness expert Elizabeth Scott, “People experiencing financial stress can be more likely to numb their anxiety by drinking, smoking or overeating. Sadly this in turn leads to more stress. ”She goes on to admit. “With less money in the budget, people who are already under financial stress tend to cut corners in areas like health care to pay for basic necessities like food.”
