If you’re like most of us, you’ve noticed how much less you’re spending, and have been reevaluating what is truly important to you. One thing is for certain: many of us are realizing just how much our personal financial health matters. In fact, being debt free and financially healthy are the new status symbols that many of us aspire to, not fancy new shoes or a new car.
Mindful consumerism matters now more than ever. Your money is power, power to change. How you spend it impacts your own ability to achieve your personal financial goals and, whether or not you are living in debt, where you spend it matters. Are you supporting companies and causes that align with your values? Are they helping to make positive changes for all? Is it good for the planet?
If you haven’t been thinking this way, don’t feel guilty. You can start spending mindfully today.
