Make a financial New Year Resolution

New Years Resolution
New Years Resolution

About half, 45% of us, create a resolution or list of resolutions each year.  (Most people place their health at the top of the list.)  According to Forbes.com, only 8% actually achieve their goals.  Those aren’t the best odds, but maybe with the right attitude, you can be one of the 8% this year!  

Overwhelming Debt  = physical and mental health risks 

We know that many families have had to tighten their belts to keep up with increased living costs, lower wages, and uncertain job market.  Overwhelming debt can have a profound impact of your health and well-being, possibly leading to mental health problems such as stress, anxiety, or depression.  Because the burden of heavy debt can weaken the immune system, you may also find yourself sick more often, gaining weight, muscle tension, headaches, and digestive issues. 

For your health and well-being, add a financial goal, or several small ones to your list this year.  

Where to start

·         Make your financial goal reasonable enough to achieve. 

·         Review your Credit Report.  

·         Use a budgeting calculator to determine monthly expenses.

·         Cut back on areas that you find may be unnecessary.

·         Commit to contributing to an emergency fund.
