The start of a new year is always exciting. It’s a time to set new goals, create resolutions, and to get a head start on wellness – physical, mental, and even financial.
It can be difficult, though, to set a yearly resolution and not break it the whole year. About 80% of people stop trying to reach their resolution after six weeks.
Instead of committing yourself for 52 weeks, consider setting a new goal or resolution at the start of each week and call them Monday Resolutions.
For example, if you want to save money in 2021 and you always buy coffee on your way to work, make a promise to yourself to only make coffee once you get to the office. At the end of the week, calculate an average of how much you saved and give yourself a pat on the back!
Another great way to save money is by completing the 52-Week Savings Challenge. Set a reminder on your phone every Monday morning for what ‘week’ you’re on and transfer that from your checking account to a specialized savings (so you won’t be tempted to spend it). At the end of the year, you’ll have over $1,300.
If yearly resolutions seem daunting to you, consider Monday Resolutions and have a happy and healthy year.
