Is it tomorrow already?
The third piece of the total wellness puzzle is financial resilience. Financial resilience is a carefully created ability to bounce back from financial challenges. The desired end state, as with all resilience, is balance. Like a balanced diet or spiritual balance, financial balance is attainable and healthy.
The first step is getting to know your money. Where it comes from and where it goes. Remember that you work hard for your money and your money needs to work as hard (if not harder) for you. It’s that simple. If you don’t know where it’s going, then it’s not working for you.
So the challenge for today is to take a few minutes to see where your money goes. If your bank doesn’t have that online feature or you have multiple banks, then a great, free site to track spending is Mint.com. Give it a shot and come back Thursday for what happens next.
