Starting 2024 Right: A Guide to Living a Better Life in 2024

Hello there, fellow seekers of the good life! As we step into the brand-new canvas that is 2024, let’s talk about some ways to make this year truly spectacular. No jargon, just some down-to-earth tips to give your life the upgrade it deserves… that YOU deserve..

Step #1
Policy Check: Because Adulting Matters

Alright, let’s start with the grown-up stuff—checking those insurance policies. I know, not the most exciting topic, but trust me, it’s crucial. Take the time to make sure your life, health, and whatever-else-is-covered policies are in sync with your current needs. It’s like giving yourself a safety net for whatever life throws your way.

PRO TIP: If you’re just starting out on your insurance journey, prioritise getting a Personal Accident policy and Hospitalisation policy. This way, your medical bills are covered if a medical emergency happens and you need to get hospitalised.

Step #2
Budgeting Bliss: Dollars and Sense

Time to talk money—not the most thrilling topic, but hear me out. Creating a budget is like giving yourself a roadmap to financial freedom. Set aside a bit for a rainy day, treat yourself to a little somethin’-somethin’, and watch your financial stress take a back seat.

PRO TIP: Some people may find it easier to save by setting up a separate bank account, where you can set aside a sum of money every month. Alternatively, when looking for an insurance policy, check with your financial adviser if it has a savings or investment component to it.

Step #3
Health is Wealth: Because You're Worth It

Time to talk health—your real wealth. Schedule those check-ups, eat your veggies (yeah, they’re good for you), and maybe add a little movement to your routine. Your body and mind will thank you for treating them right.

PRO TIP: Did you know that bedtime exercises are a thing? Try out some ab exercises on the comfort of your bed. Before you know it, you’d be on an exercise mat or a fitness class wanting more! Plus, some insurers even offer discounts on insurance premiums when you become  healthier.

Step #4
Mindset Matters: Positivity is the Key

Let’s give your mindset a makeover. Kick off your day with a gratitude journal or a little pep talk in the mirror. Positive vibes aren’t just for yogis; they’re a game-changer for a stellar year.

PRO TIP: If writing is not for you, do a daily check-in with yourself at the start of the day by simply stating the things you are looking forward to in the day. And at bedtime, check-out by listing out the things you are grateful for.

Step #5
Family Focus: Quality Time, Quality Life

Family and friends – the real MVPs. Plan a movie night, a picnic, or just some quality time together. It’s not about the activity; it’s about the people. Building connections will make 2024 the year of heartwarming memories.

PRO TIP: Check out websites for ideas on what to do as a family. Most often, meals are a great way to kickstart a family bonding session. Alternatively, get your financial adviser in the conversation to plan for your family’s financial and health security together!

Step #6
Skills Boost: Unleash Your Potential

Lastly, let’s talk about skills. Channel your inner superhero and identify the skills you want to conquer this year. Learning a new language? Nailing down a new hobby? Go for it! Growth is the secret sauce to a fulfilling life.

PRO TIP: Why not make use of your SkillsFuture Credits? Check out various websites to see what interests you. Or attend free introductory classes to get a feel before enrolling.

In a nutshell, let’s make 2024 a year of growth, genuine moments, and grabbing life with both hands. It’s not about perfection; it’s about the journey. Here’s to a fantastic 2024 – let’s make it count!
