Year-End Finances and Mental Health

Mental health is something that everybody has certain degrees of difficulty with. It is safe to say that many people who run a business have had their mental well being challenged like no time before.

The biggest fuel for a decline in mental health is around the financial aspect, with many small to medium business owners suffering from the cost of living, inflation and the economy. While many choose to leave their books in disorganised chaos until later in the year, as soon as we reach November, panic starts to set in, and added levels of strain on our mental well being take effect.

Improving Your Mental Health

Running a small to medium business is by no means an easy task. Many business owners choose to do a majority of the daily tasks themselves, which adds increased pressure on mental health without you initially feeling it.

When you dedicate yourself to many aspects of your business, you sacrifice a lot of time that your mind, body and overall health need to expand. That can mean cancelling social plans, exercise routines and chances to take onboard new skills. By finding ways to delegate certain parts of your business to other parties, you can significantly reduce the pressure you are putting on your mental well-being.

One big area is around your business financials and bookkeeping, burying yourself in figures and invoices and stressing out over the state of your records. By working with bookkeeping services in Manchester, you will find more time to relax with the following activities that boost your mental health.

Reconnecting With What is Important

There is no doubt that the successful running of your business is paramount, but the amount of time and pressure released by working with professional bookkeeping services can help you focus on many other important external activities.

How many times does pouring over your records, ingoings and outgoings prevent you from catching up with friends, business colleagues and even your own family? Socialising with friends or even networking for business are usually the first sacrifices made when having to focus on your business records, with many relying on social media to keep in touch with people.

With bookkeeping services handling your business financials, you can spare a lot of time to connect with people personally and relax with people away from your business.

Back to Shape

Another area that sufferers with harsh mental health afflictions is being physically active, with mental drain also affecting the physical drive for exercise and eating healthy. With the time freed from sitting at a desk or computer trying to realign your business finances, you can commit to a gym timeframe and even have the ease of your mental well-being to eat and run without the mental weight.

What our clients say…

Pebbles Bookkeeping took over our bookkeeping when a full-time member of staff left the business.  Our accounts are relatively complex for a business our size because of the number of different suppliers and products we deal with, but Pebbles were able to get quickly up to speed.  We have significantly reduced our costs spent on bookkeeping activity as a result. They have also helped us move to a new accounting system (Xero), which we are already seeing the benefit of, and we’re looking forward to working with Pebbles in the future to automate more of our back-office processes.

Diane has been providing her services to my company for approximately 6 months now and I can honestly say that due to her assistance, my company is running a lot more smoothly than it has at any time over the previous 30 years that it has existed.

I would just like to say that I would recommend her services to any business, whatever the size, as I can only see that her services would be beneficial to any company that may choose to employ her services.

Wayne Dinning, Managing Director, SD Waste Paper Limited

A massive thank you to Diane at Pebbles Bookkeeping & HR. You took the huge stress away from where do I start, with employee policies etc. You have created us a great, informative employee handbook, covering all necessary policies and risk assessments in a matter of no time and from the other side of the world too. I will definitely be in touch for any future help our company needs.
