Is your debt acting as a slow poison in your body? Is it creating excessive mental stress or physical ailments? If so, then it’s hardly surprising because debt or financial issues have a direct relation with your mental and physical well-being.

Debts lead to mental stress and generate negative thoughts in your mind. The result is fatal. It wreaks havoc on relationships and often make debtors suicidal.

Retail therapy can give temporary relief from the constant pain in the heart. Once debtors receive credit card bills, the pain comes back. But this time, the pain is even more unbearable.

Like I said earlier, stress acts like a slow poison in the body. It increases blood pressure level even when someone is perfectly normal. High blood pressure leads to tension and accelerates the chances of heart attack - meaning credit card debt should be regarded as a medical problem.

So, what should you do now? Retail therapy won’t solve your problem.

Don’t panic. Every problem has a solution. Here are a few options you can try out to solve your problem.

1. Look at the facts

Create a list of all the debts you have. The list should be detailed. It should contain the creditor's’ name, contact details of the creditor, the total amount you owe, the minimum amount you can pay, and the interest rate creditor is charging.

2. Use a debt payoff calculator

It’s good to figure out how to pay off debt and save money. The calculator would give you an idea about how much you can potentially save by

(i) negotiating with your creditors yourself
(ii) taking advantage of debt settlement program offered by OVLG

The calculator would also give you an idea about how long would it take to pay off debts.

3. Consider debt settlement

I’m not saying that debt settlement would make you debt free within a day. This is not a magic wand. But, it would help you sweep away your debts along with additional interest rates and penalties. Plus, you can avoid filing bankruptcy too.

9. Depend more on cash

Try to use less credit cards for the time being. Rather, pay in cash when you go for shopping. It is better to use less credit cards till your debts are under control.

10. Sell your extra items

Do you have lots of unwanted gifts in your closet? If so, then you can sell them on Craigslist or eBay. Make sure you list all the items at a moderate price. Give a proper description for the item. Write a nice headline to grab the attention of the buyers.


Finally, the best part is you can get rid of debt and depression. All you need is a specific amount and the right guidance. Be little patient and focused. You’ll be fine soon.
