Improve Employee Wellbeing with a Positive Financial Mindset

Almost every American has had the experience of feeling stressed about money–it’s practically a universal experience! Whether you’ve felt burdened by debt, worried about family expenses, or your retirement fund, you likely know the feeling of financial stress. Whatever the reason, financial stress can affect employee wellbeing, impacting health, sleep, relationships and more. Improve your financial wellbeing by shifting your financial mindset with the exercises below!

Meditation to support employee wellbeing and reduce anxiety

Yoga, meditation and massage are all known for their stress and anxiety reducing powers. Enjoy the short meditation below for anxiety reduction, and then sign up your office for an Incorporate Wellness demo, to receive weekly one-on-one or group classes that can be personalized to calm your nerves and improve your financial mindset.

Gratitude journaling

It may seem silly, but writing down the things we are grateful for can create a powerful shift in mindset, and improve employee wellbeing. Simply take out a journal, piece of paper, post-it note–whatever’s available! And write down ten things you’re grateful for. If you’re having a hard time identifying ten things, try focusing on what’s around you. It can be as simple as fresh air in your office, a coworker you appreciate, or what you have planned for lunch! 

Financial planning for Employee Wellbeing

Step away from the news

With so many news stories focusing on the economy and an impending recession, it can be difficult to stop thinking about money worries. Staying informed is important, but so is stepping away and giving yourself some space to focus on the positive! Choosing to read empowering local stories can help. Another way is to get involved! Volunteering your time towards projects that benefit society can be an amazing way to shift your financial mindset, and improve employee wellbeing. 

Phone a friend

Talking about your money stresses with a trusted friend can help ease the burden. Simply sharing your problems can release some of the pressure you may be experiencing. If you can invest in a financial planner, speaking to them about your finances can be an even more productive way to release money stress.
