Have you heard of the onUp Movement and SunTrust? SunTrust to inspire us to take control of our finances so that we can pursue a life well spent. Tell me, do you find yourself dealing with any of these issues?
- Over 70% of Americans are financially stressed
- 12% of Americans skip going to the doctor because of financial concerns
- 80% of people admitted that their personal finances keep them awake at night
- 21% of couples who rate their financial stress as at least “somewhat high” are arguing more
- 32% of adults say their finances keep them from living a healthy lifestyle
I don’t know about you, but many of the issues above I struggle with. If you had to label either myself or my hubby the analytical worrier, I would win the award. There are many times when I review our finances and stress out. The fear of the unknown (what if we need a new roof, what if our AC dies, what if we don’t get approved for adoption grants) can cause me to lose sleep. My worry doesn’t do anything to “fix” our problem. It just causes stress which causes health issues. If I had to tell you which of the issues above we deal with the most, it is that our finances keep us from living a healthy lifestyle. I SO wish we had the finances so that I could go to our acupuncturist again and also so that I could go to my chiropractor whenever I want. But instead, I will often avoid going to the chiropractor because I know that I only have a few more sessions that we’ve already paid for. And I know that once those run out, I will be given a bill that will not fit our budget. To combat this problem, hubby and I have an HSA and will slowly deposit money into the account. That way, we have money to put towards unexpected (and expected) medical bills.
SunTrust is launching a national movement to inspire millions of Americans to take control of their finances and gain financial confidence so they can pursue a life well spent. SunTrust wants us to talk more about money and to take more control of our finances. They have launced the onUp Movement. It’s a movement of optimism to encourage all of us to take control of our finances so that we can focus on the moments that matter in life instead of wasting time and energy on financial stress. SunTrust’s goal is to have 5 million people take the pledge at onup.com, join the movement, and make the commitment to get control of their finances, and gain financial confidence so that they can pursue a life well spent! Will you join the movement? Head HERE for more information and begin to take charge of your finances!
At SunTrust Bank their purpose is lighting the way to financial well-being. When you feel confident about your money, you can save for your goals and spend knowingly on what matters most to you.
The onUp movement was created to guide millions of people one step at a time towards a more financially confident life without ever losing sight of the moments that matter along the way.
Join the growing number of people transforming their stress into positive motivation to move onUp.
