Financial independence is of paramount importance for health and wellness, particularly for women in diverse and vibrant nations like India. Breaking free from societal norms and financial constraints, Indian women gain strength and empowerment through economic freedom. Achieving financial autonomy reduces stress and improves mental well-being by providing control and security over one’s future. Access to quality healthcare becomes possible, leading to better health outcomes and increased longevity. Education and skill development opportunities open up, enabling women to pursue better-paying jobs and careers, enhancing their overall well-being.

Improved living standards result in better health and overall living conditions. Financial autonomy grants decision-making power, leading to more nurturing home environments. As women thrive economically, they create positive impacts on their communities, transforming lives and contributing to a healthier, more prosperous, and empowered nation.

    Economic wellness is a very vital aspect of wellness which was not given the deserving importance. It is endearing to read the lives of women who have embraced wellness with financial independence


    While some women are empowered and working to care for their families and have some peace of mind, others seem to take their work life as an excuse to leave their kids and husbands for a brighter future. Sadly, I just heard of such a story recently and it made me wonder, where are we taking this ‘women’s empowerment’ really? But of course I am still totally for women’s empowerment!

  3. Jeannine

    Personal empowerment for me goes beyond being a woman. It’s something everyone as human should recognise and respect for each of us to have. Unfortunately, that’s not the case and sadly, it’s the women in the society that gets less of the share and sometimes even nothing. I’m so happy for those women you’ve shared whom have been able to pursue their passion and be an inspiration to fellow women and show that they can do whatever their heart desires, even at times it comes against what the society dictates. That’s where support from fellow women comes. It’s where other women feel empowered and do more!

  4. Swarnali Nath

    Financial independence is directly aligned with wellbeing for women but I also feel for some women the money factor is not necessary to find emotional balance and happiness in the way they live life. Well, it solely depends on the variety of perspectives only. Thanks for joining us in the blog hop and sharing these empowering stories with all, Ujjwal.

  5. Anjali Tripathi

    Economic wellness is truly needed for living a purposeful life. It’s good to see women in this century heading towards that wellness. They, not only create a new path for themselves, they also give room for others to flourish. It’s so important to earn and earn well enough to become a pillar.

  7. Sukaina Majeed

    Wonderful stories. This is a reality that’s needs to be paid special attention because I have personally spoken to women whether single or married who didn’t have any option to step out and make a career or be dependent on joint back accounts

  8. Samata

    Economic wellness is something which I am always vocal for when its about women. Many will say if there is need of financial support then only a women should step out to work and if not its better to stay home and take care of family and kids. My question is what about self-respect? And why not a man decide to stay home if wife is earning well to give financial support. Financial freedom is important for all. One side we will talk about self love and on the other side will say a mom, a wife going out to work for a brighter future neglecting family. Economic independence is a must for every women. Its the way you balance work and family is what matters both for a man and woman. Economic independence is a must for a purposeful, meaningful and successful life of a woman.

    The real-life stories are inspiring indeed. When my husband passed away, I had no clue about our finances. It was a joint business, and they left me penniless. I always keep talking about financial empowerment. We women as homemakers are not privy to the finances and end up in a. mess. I am still struggling for financial independence, literally living day to day. I am still clueless about how to save or invest. My income is negligible anyway. Planning to seel my house which is the only asset I have.

    Financial independence is and should always be gender-neutral. Just like we breathe on our own, we must have our personal resources to finance our life and future. It’s so inspiring to see women from different backgrounds and economic strata break out of the set rules and create a financially independent, healthy, and fulfilling life.

  15. Docdivatraveller

    They say money can’t buy happiness, but I do believe that money does bring peace of mind. And yes, we women should definitely be financially independent. Maybe not to that extent that we can run the entire household, but definitely that much so that we can fulfill our and our kids’ wishes, big or small. A very important ingredient for our mental wellness.

  16. Abha

    Empowering women with financial independence in India is crucial for gender equality and economic growth. Access to education, skill development, and equal job opportunities are key. Encouraging entrepreneurship, promoting financial literacy, and reducing societal biases can pave the way for women to achieve economic self-sufficiency and contribute to the nation’s progress.
