Women are more likely to feel stressed about their finances than men

It’s not an easy time to be navigating personal finance.

There’s inflation, market volatility and even lingering hardship from the coronavirus pandemic.

But financial stress doesn’t just hit our wallets.

A recent Bankrate survey found that it’s also harming Americans’ mental health, with 42 percent of adults saying money is causing feelings of stress, anxiety, worry, loss of sleep and even depression.

Let’s take a look at the numbers:
– 46 percent of women say that money is hurting their mental health versus 38 percent of men
– Women are worrying more than men about not having enough savings, covering everyday expenses and preparing for retirement
– Common financial situations are also more likely to trigger negative emotions for women than men, such as when they pay a bill or even when they look at their bank account

Experts blame the extra stress women face primarily on the gender pay gap, which has weighed on women’s wallets for generations and given them less money to work with for their financial goals or budgets.

Women are also more likely to take time away from work for caregiving, and data shows that women’s employment was harmed more than men’s during the coronavirus pandemic.

If you’re a woman and feeling stressed about your money, you’re not alone. Check out my most recent piece for Bankrate on what women can do to limit this stress and take control of their finances.
