Be Financially Healthy This Year

Finally, it’s 2020 and if you’re someone who aims to improve your personal finances, then there’s no need for delays.  It’s time for you to take action.  In this article, we presented practical tips to help you achieve your financial goals this year.

financially healthy1. Create your personal financial plan for the year.

Creating a plan might seem to be a daunting task but you can make things easier by setting your most important goal for the year.  Having a goal will enable you to determine more specific steps to include in your plan. 

For example, if you are currently in debt, then perhaps your primary goal for 2020 would be debt repayment.  You might have other financial goals but you would be more effective if you try to work towards one target at a time.

Focus on the biggest task at hand and list down the steps you can do to attain what you’re aiming for at the soonest possible time.  You should include specific measures such as setting a definite portion of your salary for your creditors, saving up every spare change to contribute to debt repayment, and minimizing your monthly expenses to make more room to debt repayment.

2. Set up automatic payments.

You can simplify management of your personal finances by signing up for automatic payment systems with your bank.  For instance, you can have a percentage of your salary automatically deducted and paid to your 401k fund.

You can also use the same technique for debt repayment to make sure that you will not miss a single due date.  Nevertheless, it’s not necessary to automate all your repayment obligations.  Just pick out your priorities as you personally monitor other accounts or repayment obligations.

3. Take advantage of year-end monetary blessings.

Employees will receive their 13th month pay for the year and you might even get a bonus.  Instead of immediately thinking about what to buy with this extra money, make the most out of it through wise investment.

You can send your half of your 13th-month pay or your bonus to your retirement fund or place it on a time-deposit account or savings account if you have not yet build-up your personal savings.  If you have creditors to pay, they might as well use the money to free yourself from debt.

Will you be getting a raise this year?  Or are you getting a tax refund?  Carefully decide what to do with the money before you receive it and be determined not to spend it all for personal luxury or indulgence.

4. Restructure your budget plan.

Is it possible for you to cut back on your expenses?  Do you really need all those credit cards in your wallet?  Do you really need to maintain subscriptions to all those services or is it possible for you to switch to a lower plan or perhaps completely cut off the service?

It’s good to review your monthly budget plan.  You might have experienced some changes in your economic situation and it’s good to reconsider if you need to tweak your previous plan.
