While the terms “financial wellness” and “financial well-being” are similar, they mean different things. Financial wellness is more action-oriented and is the positive steps a person can take to lead a healthier financial life. Financial well-being is more of a holistic, emotional state that focuses on contentment, balance, positivity and confidence. Said differently, financial wellness is process-focused (“what you do”) and financial well-being is outcome focused (“how you feel”). Financial wellness influences financial well-being. For instance, if you pay off your credit cards every month you are not likely to worry about short-term debt.
Financial wellness is not the same thing as financial well-being.
Knowing the difference is key.
Financial well-being should not only be a focus for individuals seeking financial peace, but also for employer-led financial wellness programs.
