What is Stressing Canadians?
Stress is a natural, physical and mental reaction to both good and bad experiences that can be beneficial to your health and safety. However, chronic stress can have a negative impact on your overall well-being if not controlled. One stressor, in particular, is driving Canadians to lose sleep, reconsider past financial decisions, argue with their partner and lie to family and friends. What is it? A national survey conducted by Leger, on behalf of the Financial Planning Standards Council (FPSC), found that 42% of Canadians rank money as their greatest stressor.
