Want Better Money Habits? Take Our 4-Week ChallengeByMarianne Hayes Jul 04, 2016 Finance
Anyone who’s ever set a goal for themselves knows: Envisioning the end result is the easy part. The actual execution … that can be a little trickier. And when that goal involves anything that has to do with your finances—well, that can prove to be even more daunting.
If you find meeting a money goal intimidating, you can take small comfort in the fact that you’re not alone: According to the American Psychological Association’s 2016 Stress in America report, 67% of respondents cite money as a source of stress.
But that shouldn’t stop you from striving to take control of your finances—and one way to help make that feel a little more manageable is to turn smart financial practices into habits.
Not sure how to start? We’ve got you covered.
We’ve laid out a four-week challenge below that helps break things down into easy-to-do tasks, with just one task per week that you can ease into. By turning the occasional good choice into your new norm, smart money moves can soon feel like second nature.
