Kimberly Palmer, a staff writer for the financial advice website NerdWallet.com, says managing money often starts with your emotions and there are ways to keep them under control. Palmer says one way is called a “body check-in.”

Before making a big spending decision, Palmer suggests reflecting on other money decisions you’ve made recently.
