In one way or another, the coronavirus pandemic forced individuals to rethink their behaviors. From the way money was spent to the amount being saved, the disruption caused by COVID-19 demanded lifestyle and attitude adjustments.
It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change.
Change is a good thing. Change can also be uncomfortable. If it were easy, everyone would do it. Continually improving your well-being requires change. You’re never done being well. There is always room for improvement, and this is especially true when it comes to financial wellness.
To set oneself up for a healthy financial life, individuals must be willing to make an honest assessment of where they stand at the present moment. Establish your baseline and determine the areas of opportunity. Your financial well-being relies on your ability to make the behavioral changes necessary to establish financial stability and continue to find ways to improve.
Financial wellness looks different for everyone, which is what drives the critical need for financial wellness programs to recognize the uniqueness of each participant and tailor the recommendations and services to best suit individual situations.
Can you be more budget-conscious when it comes to what you’re spending?
Can you do a better job of tracking your incoming and outgoing funds?
Can you contribute a few more dollars to a savings or investment account?
Can you consolidate your student loans or outstanding debt at a lower price-point?
Can you negotiate better rates on existing lines of credit?
Can you plan ahead for large expenses you know about?
Can you plan ahead for expenses you don’t know about?
Can you find ways to save on current expenses? (i.e.: assess different cable/Internet plans before you take the easy way out and renew your current agreement)
Can you be honest with yourself if your financial plan could use improvement?
