When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, we typically think about the stuff that we have never done, whether experiencing new ways of life or just changing the way we lived the year before. A recent survey suggests that seven out of 10 people would say they want to experience new things and enjoy travel in the new year. Meanwhile, six out of 10 people say they want to save more money. Nowadays, especially with a pandemic still being at the forefront of everything, many people would rather skip the new experiences like travel and start to save more money. Host Julia Sun discusses how your resolutions can help you save money for any rainy-day situation.
A healthier lifestyle can help you save money
Your resolutions can help you save money. For instance, we all say we want to be healthier. Being fitter and working out can prevent you from going to the doctor and worrying about those expensive medical bills. Also, with a healthier lifestyle, you won’t be spending money on late-night take out or junk food. Lastly, if you plan on drinking less at the bar or the restaurant, you can put that money in your pocket.
Preparing for the future
It’s your resolution list, and you can do whatever you want with it! But you can’t protect yourself from those in-need moments, such as paying for your dream home or buying the car you always wanted. If you’re a college student, you may be paying off your student loan debt to help ease you into the new year. Whatever you do, just know this is your future, and maybe your resolution can help you be more prepared.
