Financial Wellness Month

By Lauren Sharkey

HAPPY NEW YEAR, Seawolves!  The holidays have come and gone and you know what that means – it’s resolution time!  January is the first month of the new year – a time when people often reflect on things they’d like to do differently in the coming months.  But whether your goal is to lose weight, quit smoking, or to visit your grandmother more often, there is something else you should consider when jotting down your resolutions for this year:  January is Financial Wellness Month!

Even though you’re starting fresh, your financial past has a significant impact on your future – whether financial, social, or otherwise.  So, before you sign up for a gym or purchase a nicotine patch, consider tackling these resolutions first:

1.  Know what you owe

2.  Make a list of financial goals

3.  Create a budget…and stick to it!

4.  Kick the habit(s)

5.  Start saving
