3 Main Takeaways:

  • Financial wellness will have a major impact on your overall health if you are not paying attention to it. Since finances are one of the areas that people tend to stress over this can play a very important role in your overall health and cortisol levels if you are not careful. This is why it is a must that you need to be financially well.
  • Goals need to not only be “SMART” but also as Laura Lee pints out “REAL” Realistic, editable, achievable and livable!
  • Do not wait to be in a position where you are stressed about finances instead be prepared with plan and meet with a financially planner. This is their passion and their main focus so they can help you fill in the blanks where needed.
