We all know that sunshine has a lot of benefits and can be used in different contexts.
One meaning of sunshine is happiness or pleasure; and that’s the context I will be talking about.
Your finances do not have to be a source of depression and anxiety to you; you can design it to bring you pleasure.
Here are some amazing ways you can make your finances bring you pleasure.
• Have a “fun” category in your budget- When creating your monthly budget, ensure that you have a category to pamper yourself and have fun. Definitely, this should be moderate (in proportion of your income and expenses); however, no matter how small, use a part of your income to have fun and enjoy your labour.
• Spend with priority- One benefit a budget gives you is that it helps you list out your income and all your expenses and bills. This helps you ascertain if your income is enough for your expenses and if otherwise, you can list out your expenses in order of priority, check out those your income can cover, those expenses you can afford not to incur and those in which you can check out a cheaper alternative. This goes a long way in relieving you from financial depression before the months runs out.
• Speak to someone when you need to; financial anxiety is real so also is financial depression. Get some help. It will really help.
As you go in this month, ensure your finances is filled with sunshine.
To your financial independence and freedom.
