    52% of Americans Say Money Has a Negative Impact on Their Mental Health

    Is money wreaking havoc on your mental health?
    Money affects all aspects of our lives, so it shouldn’t be surprising that it can directly impact our mental health. That's why on today’s show, I wanted to continue the conversation about money and mental health with the help of Jill Sirrianni, one-half of The Frugal Friends podcast and a licensed clinical social worker. Jill shares insights on how we can better manage our mental health, especially when facing stressors that are beyond our control and why doing so is so important.

    What I Learned Living with Less

    What I Learned Living with Less

    Have you ever read a book that has stayed with you for years?
    "The Year of Less" by Cait Flanders is one of those books for me. That’s why I wanted to share a replay of the interview I did with Cait a few years ago on the podcast. In it, we discuss her book and how money influences every aspect of our lives, shaping who we become as individuals, and how her book helped her realize the changes she wanted to make in her own.
