3 Tips for Financial Wellness (adapted from the Society for Human Resources Management)

  • Pay more than the monthly minimum on credit card debt
    • You will increase the amount that goes toward paying down your principal
  • Don't try to "keep up with the Jones"
    • Competing with others will cause you to live a lifestyle outside of what you can afford
  • Make a budget
    • This will help you calculate how much money you can allow to food, housing, transportation, and personal expenses while still saving for anticipated future needs and developing an emergency fund for irregular expenses
