Do you ever feel like you’ve got a dark cloud looming over you? Like money is really starting to hold you back in life? We all feel like it every now and then, and some of us are plagued with it following us around no matter what. But, nobody likes a dark cloud hanging over their head, and we think we know exactly what to do to turn that dark cloud into sunny skies. The more time you spend struggling with money, the more likely you are to suffer with depression and withdrawal from society, purely because you haven’t got any money to go and enjoy yourself. So, if you’re fed up of this lifestyle, let us help you. Here are our top ways that you can get rid of any dark money cloud, no matter what’s causing it.

Looming Debts

Looming debts are no doubt the biggest part of your dark money cloud. But don’t feel as though you’re alone, because pretty much everyone around you at this moment in time has some form of debt that they’re dealing with. Even if people don’t like to admit it, there will be some debt being carried with them. So, think about what your debt is, and what can be done about it. Even going back years and years to your student debt, things can be done about that. If you head to, you’ll be able to take a look at some of the options that might appeal to you. Or, if you just have a normal debt, you could think about getting it consolidated. If your current debts have high minimum repayments, and the interest is super high, then this will definitely be good for you. It’s like putting all of your eggs in one easy to manage basket, with a lower minimum repayment, and with less interest. You’ll find that it’ll be so much easier to manage your debt, and clear it this way.


We’re all guilty of overspending, but overspending can definitely lead to some silly mistakes with our finances. So, if your dark cloud is because you throw all your money away within the first week of being paid, then you need to think about changing your habits. You could spread your money out so much more evenly, and feel so much more comfortable through the month. Put all of your money aside for your bills, and see what you’re left with. Split that money between the weeks, and be strict with your budget. Sometimes you have to have a few months of doing nothing to get a bit of money behind you!

Financial Freedom

Gaining financial freedom means ultimately getting rid of that dark money cloud, and following the two steps that we have already listed will get you on the right track. But, financial freedom means being able to buy anything you want, without having to worry about money. So, think about whether your job can influence this, and where you can bring more money in. You might benefit from doing a little something on the side, such as blogging!
