Debt can be a threat to your health and well-being

As you may know, excessive debt can profoundly affect your financial and personal life. When much of your income is spent as soon as you get a paycheck, it can seem like you are living just to pay bills and not much else. And if this routine goes on over a long period of time, not only will you feel frustrated, you may also experience serious health issues.

The fact is, carrying heavy debt can be stressful. According to a cardiologist at a Los Angeles hospital, debt stress can cause a number of health maladies, including immune system issues and obesity.

The cardiologist also says that individuals who are under stress are more likely to overindulge in their negative behaviors, such as smoking. They may also eat poorly or consume comfort foods in an effort to deal with their pressures. And of course, an unhealthy diet or smoking only causes more health problems.

According to a psychologist, individuals who are suffering from stress may isolate themselves and dwell on their situation. This creates an emotional tailspin, wherein a person become so discouraged that they cannot even contemplate possible solutions to their situation.

So it is possible for debt to create two different but linked cycles. First, there is a financial cycle caused by paying and paying while only getting further behind. And there is also an emotional cycle in which your negative thoughts build on themselves, creating even more negativity.

If you are facing the kinds of challenges described in this post, the best way to escape your financial and emotional woes may be to face your debt problems head on. One way to do this is to create a budget and financial goals designed to eradicate the debt.

You may also want to consider the advantages of filing for bankruptcy. A Texas bankruptcy attorney could help determine if you can benefit from a Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The attorney could also help you create a debt relief plan designed to help you get a fresh financial start.
