In 2018 I want to take my wellness habits into my own hands and if you want to do the same, take part in a monthly wellness to-do. Before I go into what this months wellness to-do goal is, I want to take about overall wellness. It is something that we all would like to achieve, mentally, physically, emotionally, we all want to feel a sense of wellness within our lives to help navigate our way through, unfortunately, that can be hard to come by especially with all the stress that is happening around us. That is why small goals are a good thing to set out, achieving small things can add up bit by bit resulting in a level of wellness that can support us. Natural remedies to help towards this and combat stress is something more people are looking towards now because they feel that natural is best. Marijuana product buying and prescribing is on the rise, from strains such as gorilla glue 4 to CBD oils for certain ailments, so much can be done with natural medications now that can help us. Onto this months wellness to-do…
This Month’s Wellness to-do: Focus on Financial Wellness by setting two Savings Goals: 1) A practical goal for your future, and 2) for something that brings you joy.
A study out of the Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis found that future-minded people who contributed to a 401(k) were more likely to take steps to improve their health (source). Financial concerns can manifest in your physical body in various ways from generalized anxiety to much more serious issues. This month, I want to start giving myself financial peace of mind by focusing on increasing my emergency fund and also planning to incrementally increase saving for travel which brings me a lot of joy. Join me this month on establishing some savings goals! Your source of joy savings goal may be to save for a designer handbag purchase or to save for a new piece of artwork. Your practical goals could be anything from saving for a house down payment to saving for longer term goals like building a college fund for your children or for a stress free retirement.
