Finances and Work
Money and Work Related Issues
Yes, just about EVERYTHING seems to revolve around money…
WE ALL NEED SOME KIND OF INCOME TO SURVIVE IN THIS WORLD!
Whether you have a job, own a business, receive Social Security, Disability, Child Support, a trust fund (which is always nice I’m sure!), unemployment, etc., or even stand on a street corner holding a sign saying “Out of Work and Hungry, Please Help”, we all need money to get by in life.
Now that you’ve taken on an additional mouth (or mouths) to feed, clothe and the multitude of other expenses involved with raising children, your finances might take a bit of a beating depending on your personal financial situation.
I am FINALLY beginning to get better at budgeting my money. To be honest I am not totally “there” yet, but working very hard to become a good “budgeter”!
I can’t wait to share some of my tips and can’t wait to hear yours. Yes, YOUR help and expertise is very much welcome here!
AS FAR AS WORK IS CONCERNED
Well, mostly I hope you have a great job, or any kind of job for that matter, to support yourself and your new family member(s). Even if you DO have a great job though, you will still experience some issues raising a child and working a full time job (considering us grandparenting grandparents are not as young as we used to be). Also for younger relatives who are raising another relative’s child, there will be many changes to your lives too.
If you had a job and have lost it in this not so great economy of ours, then I can totally relate to that. Finding yourself suddenly unemployed is terribly stressful and can also have a negative effect on your health.
THERE ARE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO COMBAT THE STRESS AND OTHER SIDE EFFECTS OF JOB LOSS
Such as some type of exercise, venting to friends (I’m sure they will all just LOVE that!), networking with others (you never know what can happen with networking, perhaps a new job?), and learning new skills.
I’m looking forward to sharing some of my ideas on how to deal with both money and work related issues with all of you! You’re ideas and experiences are always welcome, so please share with us!
If you’re overwhelmed and feeling a ton of stress here are some great stress relief techniques and coping strategies Click Here! I find it much easier to cope with stress (yes, I’m forgetful when I’m stressed) when I have something at my fingertips to remind me what to do about it, so this is very helpful to remind me of the techniques and strategies while in the midst of the anxiety.
