Hello, friends! Hope you're all doing splendidly.

Today's episode dives into the nuances of financial anxieties and the challenges of managing impulsive shopping habits. Two heartfelt listener questions guide our discussion, shedding light on personal struggles and the broader societal context:

Tackling Shopping Habits & ADHD:

  • A loyal follower from Vermont expresses concerns over her shopping habits, leading to financial difficulties, accentuated by her newly diagnosed adult ADHD.

    • We delve into the difference between compulsive shopping and anxiety-driven financial behaviors, offering clarity and understanding.
    • The profound influence of ADHD on financial decisions: a look into impulsivity and executive dysfunction.
    • Addressing societal pressures, the modern capitalist world, and their impacts on our financial stresses.

Strategies for Financial Well-being:

  • Exploring actionable steps to regain financial control and establish a balanced relationship with money.

    • Emphasizing the importance of budgeting and planning to avoid impulsive bill payments and purchases.
    • Techniques to curb immediate spending impulses and create a waiting period before making purchases.
    • The value of community support, accountability, and journaling for self-awareness and reflection.
    • The potential for therapy to understand and address deep-seated beliefs and behaviors about money.

Remember, seeking balance and understanding in our relationship with money is a journey, not a destination. Taking proactive steps, seeking support, and focusing on self-awareness can pave the way for healthier financial habits.
