Financial wellbeing is the top priority (57%) for Brits ahead of physical, intellectual and social wellbeing. Yet only around half (55%) feel comfortable regularly checking their bank statements, according to new research from Lloyds Bank.

The research found that, although one in four (23%) Brits worry  about their finances at least once a week, people spend more time each week on other life admin than money management. Two thirds (65%) of people spend a minimum of half an hour a week on social media, while only 26% of people spend the same amount of time checking their bank statement, despite the rise in online and mobile banking meaning both can be just as easy to access. This is similar to the amount of time people are prepared to spend on choosing what to watch on TV (28%).

Aston spoke to personal finance expert Emma Maslin a.k.a Money Whisperer.
