Money plays a critical role in our lives, but few of us realise just how much it can impact our wellbeing. Sometimes, just the topic of personal finances can bring us out in a hot sweat, so we prefer to avoid the subject rather than face our finances head on – not exactly healthy behaviour.

But our relationship with our finances is central to our overall physical and mental wellbeing. ‘Financial wellness’ is about feeling secure and confident that you’re in control of your cash, have autonomy over your spending, feel prepared for the unexpected and can stay on track for a fulfilled and secure future. (Oh, and you’re satisfied that you can treat yourself and your loved ones now and again without fear, too!).

The good news is that despite how daunting gaining financial control may feel, just starting with one small positive fiscal habit at a time could be all you need to improve your situation – and in turn boost feelings of a better life balance.

Once you’ve mastered the process of learning how to successfully manage your money, conversely, your entire wellbeing will improve. How good does that sound?!

This month, ANZA is excited to be partnering with Eight Wealth International to bring you a fascinating series of in-person events to help you to get ‘financially and physically fit’. Led by Alexis Livanes, who has over 18 years of experience as a financial planner in the UK, Australia and Singapore, helping clients – especially women – to really understand their relationship with money, she’ll be joined by experts to escort you on this journey.

Unlike many workshops which focus on the areas of finances and health individually, Alexis will be bringing the two subjects together with the help of two guest speakers.
