You need to prioritize your financial health not later but now. The first step to ensuring that your financial future looks bright is by committing to a strict habit of saving. Ideally, the moment you join the workforce, you start allocating a portion of your income to savings. These days, you cannot afford to be complacent.
You don’t know how the global economy or politics will shift against your favor, putting your job at risk. You do not know when a health emergency will strike, involving you or a loved one. You can’t be certain how a global health scare can impact your finances. It’s best to be proactive and, yes, save for the future.
Sure, it’s not an entirely easy habit to adopt. You work hard and sometimes you feel like you just want to reward yourself with good stuff. Maybe it’s a new pair of sneakers or a cup of your favorite coffee concoction to start your day. While there’s nothing wrong with enjoying the money you earn, you cannot neglect to save.
Here are some tips to help you jumpstart your savings plan.
