Wellness Means Financial Wellness, Too!
In this age of self-care, it seems we’re reminded every day to pay attention to our well-being—our physical health, our work-life balance, our environmental impact. Wellness has thankfully become part of our day-to-day lives, not something to be put off till tomorrow. Yet many of us do exactly that when it comes to our financial wellness, whether it’s creating a sensible budget, lowering debt, or educating ourselves about retirement savings options.
That’s why National Estate Planning Awareness Week, October 16–22, is the perfect time to tackle one essential part of financial wellness—providing security and stability for yourself, your loved ones, and the causes you care about. One easy first step is to create or update your will.
Putting together this official document allows you to record critical decisions to ensure the long-term security of your loved ones and plan for the distribution of your treasured assets, as well as provide support for the charities and organizations dear to your heart.
“We are so grateful that so many people have included amfAR as part of their legacies,” says Kyle Clifford, chief development officer at amfAR. “Our mission is to cure AIDS, and every donation—now and in the future—brings us one step closer to achieving that goal.”
