When you combine this fact with the recent neurological studies of brain shrinkage due to stress, you have what we see as a direct link between financial health and overall health
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) January 07, 2015
Financial stress may shrink your brain according to Four Seasons Financial Education (FSFE), a national provider of workplace financial wellness programs. The assertion is part of the firms new campaign highlighting the correlation between physical health, mental health and financial health.
"According to the American Psychological Association, money is the primary cause of stress for 71% of Americans," said Travis Freeman, FSFE president. "When you combine this fact with the recent neurological studies of brain shrinkage due to stress, you have what we see as a direct link between financial health and overall health."
Specific neurological studies followed by FSFE include those from Yale University lead by Dr. Rajita Sinha and Stanford University's Dr. Robert Sapolsky. Such studies have analyzed the neurological effects of stress on both animals and humans. FSFE hopes to further promote awareness of these potential physical and mental issues to both the wellness industry and employers.
Freeman also cited that financial stress occurs at all income levels, as the firm has found countless families living paycheck to paycheck on six-figure incomes. FSFE holds regular webinars on topics such as financial wellness. Those interested may contact Anna.Fruits@FSFE.com for information on upcoming webinars.
