The Money Anxiety Cure- A Path to Financial Wellness
Everybody has worried about financial issues at some point, and, with the economy still sluggish, many people suffer from money anxiety disorder, a chronic fear of monetary failure that manifests in physical symptoms. Ostowari offers a solution to this disorder, and it’s not what you would expect.
Despite the title, The Money Anxiety Cure is not really about money. There are no budget plans or investment tips. Instead, it’s about how you respond to money. Using meditative practices and somatic techniques, Ostowari guides you towards a balanced view of money, towards realizing that, while it is important, it is only one small part of a larger happiness puzzle. His key points are mindfulness, gratitude, and generosity.
This is a novel approach to dealing with financial strain, and the best thing is that it can work for everyone. Many tips to reign in money related stress are dependent upon a certain amount of income flow, but everyone can sit for a few minutes and breathe. Regardless of how much or how little money you possess, Ostowari’s advice can help. The techniques described in this book can also be used to deal with any other aspects of your life that are causing stress. The key is to find out what is most important to you and then go after it without hurting anyone else. The mindfulness techniques help you to really focus on what is important and to stay on track. This is a book you can return to time and time again, using the suggestions to guide you through all manner of stressful issues.
The Money Anxiety Cure offers a different way to deal with money (and generalized) anxiety disorder. If you are just looking for how to create a budget, this is not the book for you. However, if you are looking for a genuine way to improve your outlook and lessen stress in the long run, this book can help. I do suggest you only read a bit at a time though, as rushing through it would kind-of defeat the purpose.
