Healthy habits don’t have to be limited to only benefiting your health. “Healthy” is used loosely in the sense that it means anything that will help you! The number one, most important habit to develop is saving money! Saving your pennies and dimes for rainy day’s isn’t exactly where I’m going with this either, so don’t go busting out the piggy banks claiming you’re on the right track. Im talking about a serious investment or savings plan. One with important life goals in mind. Think about putting a percent of your income in an untouchable savings account, that when left untouched, over years develops interest. 10% always seemed like a good number to me. If you rake in $500 on your biweekly pay checks, put $50 in an account and “watch the money pile up” as Kanye West would say. Investing in companies or shares also can pay off if you’re wise about it. After all, you need to spend money to make money in this economy. I know more then anyone it’s hard, damn near impossible to not spend your pay checks on clothes, sushi, nails and hair. But I also know that by saving money since I got my first job at 14, i was able to purchase a brand new car, and pay for university; as well as enjoying the finer things in life. Like designer jeans, and cactus club sunday lunches. Who DOESN’T want a cajun chicken sand which for lunch every sunday? Saving can make or break a person. You just need to know what you’re doing so you don’t end up being the person who breaks!
