How a Cash Advance Can Reduce Your Stress Levels

Everyone feels stressed from time to time. Whether we’re stuck in traffic or have an impending work deadline or a lack of cash… stress can get the better of us. Money is a common stressor. Sometimes, a bit of a cash advance is all you need to reduce your money stress.

Stress doesn’t just impact our mood, though.

It can be detrimental to our health, especially if it becomes chronic (like if we are stressed over a prolonged period of time).

According to the American Psychological Association, stress can have the following impact on our health:

  • Fatigue
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Increased chances for disease
  • Depression
  • Increased cardiovascular risk

In general, stress impacts our quality of life (and normally not in a good way).

Money is a common stressor

Research shows that an increasing number of Australians are worried about money issues.

According to the Australian Psychological Society, finances are regularly at the top of list of worries in the annual Stress and wellbeing report.

Even if your family and friends don’t seem stressed about money, it’s possible they are, but just don’t show it to those around them.

How a cash advance works

If you need cash for any reason, a cash advance makes that possible now.

You don’t have to wait until your next payday.

You’re basically getting money upfront for what you know you’ll have later.

For example, if you need $1,200 to pay for a medical bill, and $900 for a car repair, but don’t have the funds, you can get a cash advance for $2,100.

You don’t have to go without a car, or go into more debt, just because you’re not able to pay for those untimely expenses.

So, in other words, you’re given cash by a lender (like Swoosh) who knows you’ll be able to repay the amount later over a period of time.

Your cash advance doesn’t just have to be for medical expenses or car repairs either, it can be for a holiday, a new motorcycle, or a kitchen renovation.

That’s one of the great things about a cash advance: you can use the cash for whatever you need.

How a cash advance reduces stress levels

By having the money you need when you need it, you don’t have to spend time and energy worrying.

You don’t have to think about how you’ll:

  • Pay your bills or expenses
  • Get the money
  • Miss out on a trip or opportunity
  • Repay the loan until it’s repayment time
  • Have enough cash to get by.

Without these stressors, you can continue to live in a relaxed, confident manner.

You can continue going to work and visiting with friends, without constantly thinking about how much money you have or how much money you need.

When the burden of money is lifted, we can spend our time and energy on more important things like family, friends, our health, and our free time.

We can begin to see life for all its possibilities, because we know in the end, it will all work out.

By putting the worry of money aside, we can be the best versions of ourselves.

The speed of a cash advance

Perhaps the greatest thing about a cash advance is the speed.

Often, you’ll have the money within one business day—deposited directly into your bank account.

You don’t have to take time off of work to go to a lender or look at options.

You can apply right online in a matter of minutes.

And you’ll get an answer back within one business day (but sometimes as early as one hour).

No more worrying or fretting, you’ll have the money you need.

So rather than waiting until your next paycheck, or saving enough money, you can get what you need right away.

Talk about a huge stress relief!

With a cash advance, there’s no need to fret about when you’ll pay back the loan.
