Do you know the day after feeling you get when you go to the gym for the first time in a while? Your body is basically yelling at you as you gingerly limp around on muscles that are trying to recover. That feeling alone is enough to make you not want to go back. Most things that are worthwhile aren’t easy. Working out becomes easier over time if it becomes part of your routine, but there is undoubtedly a hump to get over first. Your financial fitness is no different. It is painful to cut something from your budget or cooking at home rather than going out. Saving money into a retirement account initially is not as much fun as going on a trip.
There are a million excuses not to exercise or plan for your future. You know both types of fitness are good for you, so rather than looking at either as an overwhelming problem, start small. If your goal is to run a 5k, start by jogging in half mile increments. If you don’t know where you stand financially or what you need to do to get on track, find a financial advisor that understands you as a person and gives you customized advice to follow. Start small, start somewhere, but the bottom line is get started! For more information on what it means to develop a plan with an advisor, click here: http://www.econwealth.com/we-plan-with-you.
