I mean it’s the time for fresh starts, new beginnings! ‘Health is Wealth’ – The older I get the more I realize just how true this is, no matter how cliché it may sound.

4 Bad Financial Habits I’m Leaving In 2016

4 Bad Financial Habits I’m Leaving In 2016

by

I made a lot of mistakes in 2016 when it came to my money – earning it, saving it, and also investing it. Although I have come a long way from that person that maxed out her credit card almost every month to buy shoes and clothes she could not afford, I still have a long way to go. These are the bad financial habits that I’m leaving behind in 2016: 1. Not finding the best deals: I did not always bargain or do the research needed to find the best deals. This was because I didn’t think doing much more research would make a difference in the price (and other times I was pretty lazy). I know better though, money is money, and every dollar counts. I am not saying you should spend 4 hours on the phone trying to reduce your phone bill by $5 – that’s hustling…

Goal Setting Is Not Enough (Plus Giveaway!)

Goal Setting Is Not Enough (Plus Giveaway!)

by

It’s almost the New Year and everyone is making resolutions and thinking of ways they can make their lives better in 2017. If you’re anything like me, you will have one or two goals which come up on your New Year Resolutions list year after year. In my case, I have “gym three times a week”, “Journal daily” and “meditate daily”, creeping up on my New Year’s resolution list yet again, which is honestly terrible! Although I was able to accomplish most of the goals I set for myself in 2016, I was not able to accomplish all of them. This is not because I was lazy (although, I must confess, I am sometimes), but because I did not have the systems in place to accomplish the goals. In the past I have used tools like: S.M.A.R.T goal setting; visualizing my success (I made a vision board as well); setting…

My 3 Favorite Books of 2016 And How I Applied What I Learnt To My Life

My 3 Favorite Books of 2016 And How I Applied What I Learnt To My Life

by

  I picked up the habit of reading when I was 20, not because I particularly enjoy reading (I don’t – I’m very slow at it, I have a very short attention span, and it gets kinda boring); but because I know the amazing benefits of reading. Over the years I’ve noticed that my relationship with books/ reading takes 3 forms: A : “What is a book?”  – Where I go months without picking up a book to read. B: I read but I can never remember what I read and I cannot find ways to apply what I learn to my life. C: I read and retain what I learn and apply this to my life. I read 11 books this year, and listened to 20 or more audio books (blame it on my long commute). So, for the few times when I actually remember what I read and applied…
