Listen To Episode 522 As Josh Trent Uncovers What To Do When You're Depressed About Money

If you're stressed and depressed about your finances, especially now after the plandemic and the world economic forum's Orwellian nightmare speeches, know that you're not alone.
Millions of Americans and people globally are in the same boat. It can be tough to figure out how to get out of the cycle of debt and poor financial decision-making.
But there is hope: become financially educated and sovereign, so you can exit the matrix of financial slavery from a system that has existed for hundreds of years to monetize every aspect of your life.
Know that we have all signed up to be here at this time on earth so part of the learning curve of this lifetime is to figure out finances. Otherwise, we wouldn't be here or money wouldn't exist.
Quite a philosophical and even esoteric statement, that I just made, however, if you really search within your heart and soul, you can feel that it's true.
The truth is that money is whatever you want it to be it could be a source of pain or a source of pleasure, but at the end of the day based on universal laws, money is an energetic reward for the value that you provide to others.
It's what others are willing to pay you for, it's what the universe is willing to give to you – depending on three key factors:
  1. What do you know, think and feel you're worth?
  2. How do you enthusiastically and with love and persuasiveness articulate that worthiness while being of service to others?
  3. What value of (goods or services) do you provide in the marketplace that is unique and important enough for others to pay you for?
By following some simple steps and making some positive changes in your life, you can start to heal your finances once and for all.

Acknowledge your feelings – it's okay to feel stressed and depressed about your finances

Feeling stressed and depressed about your finances can be a normal reaction to an overwhelming situation.
If you’re feeling this way, it’s important to take some time to acknowledge those feelings.
Reflect on what might be the cause of your stress and find ways to address it such as implementing more discipline into your financial habits or shifting your mindset about money.
Maybe it’s coming up with a plan for living within or below your means or having conversations with loved ones who are able to provide guidance—whatever it may be, taking these steps can help ease the burden of financial worry and put you back on track toward healing your finances for good.

Talk to someone who can help – a financial planner, therapist, or even a smart friend!

Talking to someone who can help is a key step to peace and healing when it comes to finances. We all need mentors and guides, especially when it comes to something as daunting as our bank accounts.
Finding the right person – whether it be a financial planner, therapist, or friend – can help you release stress and create a plan of action.
This can be hugely beneficial in giving you the peace of mind and security you are searching for in your finances.
So make sure you reach out for help; it is an invaluable first step in your healing process.

Make a plan – figure out where your money is leaking: what you can cut back on?

The key to financial freedom is having a strategy and thoughtfully following through.
You can start by figuring out where your money is going, and which places you can cut back on.
Once you have done that, then you can begin optimizing the places where you do spend, freeing up more of your resources in order to build wealth; don't let the stress of your finances weigh you down!
A plan takes time and effort to create and maintain, but it will be a worthwhile investment in reaching a state of financial success.

Take action – make small changes in your spending habits that will make a big difference over time

Taking inspired action is one of the best ways to build a healthier relationship with money, and start taking control of your finances.
Making small changes in your spending habits can add up over time, and make a big difference in your overall financial health.
Whether it's committing to tracking your expenses each week, sticking to a budget that works for you, or making adjustments to improve your financial goals—any effort toward putting yourself in charge of your money will pay off.
Start now by taking inspired action towards reaching your goals and be on the path towards healing your finances for good!

Be patient – healing your finances takes time, but it is possible to get back on track

Healing your finances is no simple task, and it doesn't happen overnight. Finding relief from stress and depression related to money matters can be a slow process, but one that is worth taking your time with.
To get back on track, generosity is key; start with small acts of generosity like forgiving debt you feel others owe you.
With generosity in mind, don't forget about discipline — make sure you're creating a financial plan for how to keep your money safe and grow it over time.
And with patience, generosity, and discipline working together, it's possible to truly heal your finances for good.

Make A Plan: Money + Mental Health

Stress and depression related to money matters can take a serious toll on your mental health.
If you're feeling overwhelmed by financial worries, it's important to remember that you're not alone—and that there are steps you can take to start healing your finances and finding relief.
The first step to getting your finances back on track is making a plan. This will help you figure out where your money is going and what adjustments need to be made in order to reach your financial goals.
To start, sit down with a pen and paper (or an app like Mint) and write out all of your expenses.
This includes necessary costs like rent/mortgage, food, utilities, etc., as well as less obvious ones like subscriptions or monthly memberships.
Actually, I just use a Google spreadsheet where I have all money coming in and all money going out, this is otherwise known as a profit and loss sheet or P&L. I track all my expenses right down to the penny using the Mint app, which is huge when it comes to tax time because I can literally run reports on where all of my money goes…
Once you have a big-picture view of where your money is going, then you can begin the hard work of trimming those expenses down to something that you can manage each month.
It's also important to make sure that any debt management plans are tailored specifically for your needs and resources—and that they prioritize what's most important first.
For example, if credit card debt has been weighing heavily on your mind, consider reaching out to a debt consolidation specialist who can help negotiate lower interest rates on those cards so that more of each payment goes towards the balance itself rather than just accruing interest charges.
Lowering the amount of interest being charged each month means more of your payment will go towards reducing the principal balance—which in turn will help get more quickly back on track financially.

NEXT: Take Action

While simply understanding where your money is going may feel empowering at first, it won't do much good unless you actually start putting into practice the changes needed for improvement.
Start small: Make a commitment to tracking all of your weekly expenses or sticking with a budget that works for you; cut out unnecessary services such as magazine subscriptions; or adjust spending habits when possible so that more resources are available for savings and investments. Any effort towards taking control of the situation will reward in the long run!
The most powerful thing I've ever seen in my own life, and in the lives of almost all people I know who have struggled with money is to take an honest look at where you are wasting money in exchange for immediate gratification.
If you're spending money on alcohol and crappy food and going places that you don't even like just because you can't deal with the fact that your life is uncomfortable then it's time to take an emotional inventory.
A powerful step for you to begin would be to head over to joshtrent.com/513 where I talk about the wellness pentagon, and the emotional inventory process so you can get clear on where your focus and attention are leaking out dollar bills from your wallet.
Seriously go there right now. It is a perfect bookmark for you to do right after this.

Be Patient

Finally, it's important to remain patient and generous with yourself during this process; Healing finances takes time—no matter how small or big the steps required may be.
Generosity is key here: start with forgiving any debt owed by yourself or others; follow through with discipline by creating a financial plan for keeping safe what’s yours and growing it over time; reward yourself responsibly when progress has been made – celebrate success but practice moderation when it coming rewarding yourself too much!

Reward yourself – once you've made progress, treat yourself to something special

Achieving financial freedom can be an incredibly rewarding process – no matter how small the steps! As you experience achievement and progress, don't forget to reward yourself for all the hard work and discipline it takes to turn your finances around.
Whether it is a new outfit or dinner out, giving yourself something special will encourage you to continue on your journey while celebrating the achievement of your successes.
Be sure to reward yourself responsibly and not take on more debt in order to do so: practice moderation, self-awareness, and planning to ensure that you make lasting changes for a brighter financial future.

Ultimately, Stressed About Money? The Answers Are In Your Heart

Tips to cope with debt and depression can lead way towards healing both psychologically and financially speaking – just be sure to remember to be patient and generous while doing so!
With dedication comes progress – make sure to keep up with tracking expenses & setting realistic goals – then stick with them.
Remember: celebrate successes along the way & reward yourself responsibly every once in a while.
Every single time you allow yourself to ruminate and stress about money coming in takes you away from the inspired action place of doing and being so valuable to the marketplace, and to the people around you that you actually unconsciously sever the connection between money being given to you by the universe.
When I say the universe, I don't just mean some pie in the sky idea that you're going to click your heels together three times and chant that “there's no place like home.”
What I'm talking about is not a fairytale. I'm talking about the life that you and I signed up for to live well inside of which requires every aspect of the five sides of the wellness pentagon, which I teach: mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial.
What I mean is that you will be such an energetic match by the service in your heart, and the passion in your soul, that people could literally not be able to not pay you because they want what you have or they want what you have to give.
This has been the hardest learning curve for me in life, and that is my bank account is a crystal clear reflection of my beliefs about myself.
And again, not just what other people are willing to pay you for what you give to them, it's what the universe is willing to give to you – depending on the 3 key factors I mentioned:
  1. What do you know, think and feel you're worth?
  2. How do you enthusiastically and with love and persuasiveness articulate that worthiness while being of service to others?
  3. What value of (goods or services) do you provide in the marketplace that is unique and important enough for others to pay you for?
This holistic approach helps build a healthier relationship with money over time + truly get back on track sooner rather than later…

After reading this…

Where do you feel is the perfect starting point for you to achieve peace around your money and finances?
You're not alone in feeling stressed and depressed about your finances – but there is hope.
By reaching out for help, making a plan, and taking action, you can start to heal your finances and put yourself back on track.
Be patient with yourself and celebrate your successes along the way – healing takes time, but it is possible.
So where will you start?

PaleoValley's 100% Grass-Fed Beef Sticks

Paleovalley 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are the only beef sticks in the USA made from 100% grass fed/grass finished beef and organic spices that are naturally fermented.

Their 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are unlike anything else on the market. In fact, they were recently voted in Paleo Magazine as one of the top snacks of the year.

The reason is that they are committed to making the highest quality, clean products that are free from problematic ingredients.

Their beef comes from 100% grass fed cows raised entirely on natural grass pastures by family farmers right here in the USA. As a result they are healthy and happy.

PaleoValley's Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks

Paleovalley Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks were created to make healthy snacking easier.

Their turkey sticks are made from turkeys who are allowed to live as nature intended… on organic grass pastures with plenty of sunshine, fresh air and room to exercise. The result of raising turkeys in such a natural way is a much healthier, clean protein with higher levels of vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s.

Unfortunately, virtually all turkey in the USA is conventionally raised with a small portion being “free range” – a virtually meaningless term that simply means the turkeys were allowed access to the outdoors. However, most “free range” turkeys only have access to an outdoor dirt field with no pasture in sight.

Their truly pasture-raised turkeys are given full access to outdoor, pesticide-free pasture with plenty of grass and insects for them to nibble on.
