Ft. Lauderdale – Americans are totaling up their debt and their bodies are reacting to stress. Consumers have more than $880.50 billion dollars in credit card debt and credit card accounts that are over 30 days past due was 2.52 percent in September 2014.
One-third of Americans are losing sleep over the state of the U.S. economy and other personal financial concerns, according to the National Sleep Foundation’s Sleep in America™ poll. Academic scholars and business experts joined to write a report on the connection between debt and stress. The results were shocking – one in four of American workers are stressed out over their financial circumstances. Being stressed over debt only compounds a bad situation. It was noted that stressed workers are least likely to perform well on the job because they are constantly reflecting on their poor financial standing instead of working.
The most important thing that people can do to relieve debt stress is to confront the problem. “Don’t ignore debt; bring it out in the open. Speak with family about how to begin to pay back money owed, don’t use credit cards as a band aid and speak with a financial professional,” advise Howard Dvorkin, CPA and Chairman of Debt.com.
