Tips to overcome budgeting overwhelmTips for Overcoming Budgeting Overwhelm

We’ve all made a budget and failed. Most budgets aren’t designed for success and most of us are not used to making and meeting goals related to money. Money is stressful but it doesn’t have to be. Here are tips for overcoming budgeting overwhelm:

  1. Progress, Not Perfection. Stop beating yourself up when you go over budget or when you fall off the budget wagon. If you’re making progress in the right direction, give yourself credit.
  2. Revisit your WHY. There’s a reason you started budgeting. There was a reason you scheduled a Eureka Session with me. You wanted to change your financial life in a long-term and meaningful way. When you feel the stress of money or budgeting, remember your why to help you get back on track.
  3. Evaluate if the Budget is Working. Life changes and so can your budget. If the budget you created months or years ago isn’t working due to lifestyle changes, then make changes to the budget that work for you. It’s your budget, not mine. Those goals are your goals, not mine. I want you to succeed in whatever way is meaningful to YOU.
  4. Take a deep breath. You’re not the only one who feels overwhelmed about money. We’ve all been there. Take a deep breath, refocus, and remember you have resources that can help guide your decisions.
