We're all worried about money in this economy. And we all know that sitting around worrying about it isn't going to help. I've been working on my relationship to my money lately to make sure it's a healthy one. Here's why…
When I first started paying attention to my relationship with money, I realized that I usually felt tight and tense when it came to money. It wasn't a topic I felt comfy talking about. Not a productive relationship right? Now, because of the work I've done to shift how I feel about money, I feel more abundant about it and comfortable discussing it. My relationship has changed to a more positive one–It feels great!
So what's your relationship to money? Is it serving you or holding you back? Here's a quick exercise to get you started on making your relationship to money work for you, not against you.
1) First, find out how you feel about money by writing down the first 5 words that come to your mind when you think about money. Are they positive or negative words? If they're negative, you've got something to work on.
2) Second, write down how you want to feel about money instead and write that down on your list of resolutions! Place those words or sentences on a post-it note on your fridge so you see them all the time and focus on those thoughts instead. Good luck ;)
