Get real about your money
In order to improve your financial situation, you must understand it. Being completely transparent with your comings and goings is a foot in the right direction to recovering your financial position. Dig deep into your bank statements and see where you can cull any unnecessary expenses. This can be confronting for some, but simply must be done.
Talk to a financial professional
Investing in professional financial advice is an expense we can get behind! There’s no shame in talking it out with someone who can help you come up with a plan. Seeking the advice of a professional will not only get your finances in order but give you peace of mind knowing you’re doing right by you.
If you’ve been drastically impacted by events out of your hand, do some research into the government’s assistance programs. After all, help is help and any dollar counts. The government has put in place many financial assistance measures to give a helping hand where needed.

Invest time in yourself
Making moves in the money aspect of your life will substantially improve your stress levels, but you’ve also got to ensure you’re investing time in yourself. What does this mean? Essentially, we want you to take a breather. It’s easy to get impatient in the process of correcting your finances, so we recommend pencilling in some “me” time to clear your head. Our favourite ways to unwind are cooking, meditation and exercise. Just choose something that genuinely makes you happy!
Routine on repeat
In addition to stopping for a breather each day, making small adjustments to your routine can make a big difference to help with stress. Simple things like making your bed every morning, lighting a candle, eating clean and drinking more water will make you feel good from the inside out!
