WELLNESS CHALLENGE

How do you feel about your finances right now? Maybe you earn enough, but still worry about how you’ll make your next mortgage payment or how you’ll save for your kids’ college costs. Maybe you feel uneasy about your job security right now. Maybe you are able to save a little each month, but your credit card balances are still high. Learning all you can about the ways you can solve these problems may boost your financial wellness. And that may help ease stress and boost your health, too.

The key is to look at both your short- and long-term goals. Then teach yourself about ways to meet them. You could speak with friends or family who are doing well with their money. You could work with a financial counselor. You might even check to see if your employer has a financial wellness program. These programs can teach you how to better manage your money.
