Is financial health a factor in your overall health?
Data from a newly released Harris Poll of more than 1,000 U.S. Workers suggests that a majority of pre-retirees might answer “Yes” to that question. Sixty-six percent of respondents to the poll identified their financial health as a component of their overall well-being. In fact, financial health ranked up near physical health (74%) and mental health (70%). Fifty-seven percent of those polled saw a relationship between all three factors, holding the opinion that their money, their lifestyle, and their health were integrated holistically, with each factor impacting another.
