Survey: 65 pct. of Americans lose sleep over financial concerns
(NEWSCAHNNEL 3) - If money worries keep you tossing and turning all night--you're not the only one.
A new survey by CreditCards(dot)com shows that 65 percent of Americans lose sleep over financial concerns.
That's just four percentage points fewer than the share of Americans who had money related insomnia back in 2009, when the economy was still recovering from the recession.
Not only are more Americans fretting over money matters, the survey also found the issues American worry about most are changing.
Some 38 percent of Americans lose sleep over health care bills and cost of health insurance.
A senior analyst at CreditCards(dot)com says it's okay to worry, but there are small steps you can take to ease your mind--like making a budget, selling something of value, or trimming your expenses.
They say those small things can add up, and help you sleep better at night.
