Your Brain and Money

Uncategorized Jun 14, 2020
 

Social Media isn't always real.

There is an illusion of a lifestyle that is not necessarily truthful. People may not be giving you the best and most authentic information to help you in your life.

Your brain is pretty powerful & forms connections and patterns that you may not be aware of.

Your thoughts and habits around money are based on a lot of things. Society, the culture you grew up in, your parents, how your parents dealt with & talked about money.

We tie money into our self worth & our ethics. We think that if we owe somebody money or have debt, we are "bad" people.

That is not a healthy way to look at money.

The first step to fix this is to connect your limbic system (your emotions)  to your prefrontal cortex (your rational side).

When you start worrying about money or you want to hide and ignore it, try to connect your actions (or rational thinking) to a feeling.

For example, if you are a parent and you buy a bunch of stuff at the store then you can't even remember what you put in the cart, ask why you spent the money.

Did you do it so little Timmy would be super happy for getting new toys? If you're doing this, you might be equating buying things for your kids with being a good parent. I'm not saying don't spend the money. I'm suggesting you think about why you're spending it.
