Well-Being Moments

Meditate in nature

Planet

Meditate in nature by finding a comfortable space outside and taking a few minutes to be still, focus on your breathing and acknowledge all of your senses. By taking your meditation practice outdoors, you experience the benefits of meditation including increased focus, self-awareness and relaxation, and deepen your connection to the world around you. See other ways to connect with nature here.

Prepare for a financial emergency

Financial

Prepare for a financial emergency with this financial checklist and schedule time on your calendar in the next 30 days to complete it. Planning for a financial emergency can help you save time and money in the event of an unexpected life change, reducing the stress and financial losses/debt that can result from these situations.

Review your budget

Financial

Take a minute to review your budget. Compare your spending last month to your budget. If you’ve gone over budget, write down a couple adjustments you can make to your spending to better align your habits with your budget. Setting and tracking your budget helps you gain control of your financial situation and decreases financial stress. Learn more about how you can improve your financial security here.

Use energy-efficient light bulbs

Planet

Replace traditional incandescent light bulbs with more energy-efficient options like Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFLs) or Light-emitting Diodes (LEDs). CFL and LED light bulbs significantly reduce energy consumption and have much longer light spans, lowering energy bills and improving the well-being of the planet. Learn more ways to reduce your carbon footprint here.

Use public transportation instead of your car

Planet

Leave your car at home and take public transit next time you head to a destination that is accessible via alternative transportation options. Opting for public transportation reduces air pollution and traffic congestion. It can also improve your financial and emotional well-being by saving on gas and reducing driving-related stress.

Download a budgeting app

Financial

Download a budget tracking and planning app such as Mint or YNAB to help you set and track your monthly budget. Budget plans help you reduce stress by revealing unhealthy spending habits and identifying ways to increase your savings.

Adjust your thermostat

Financial

Adjust your thermostat setting to a lower temperature in the winter or a higher temperature in the summer. Adjusting your thermostat settings to a more conservative level can help you save money on your utility bills and protect the planet by cutting down on energy consumption.

Turn off lights that aren’t in use

Financial

Do a quick walk around your house (or office) to check for lights on in rooms that aren’t in use. You can save money on your utility bills, while also improving the well-being of the planet by cutting down on your energy consumption. Discover other ways to save on everyday expenses.

Pause before your next purchase

Financial

Pause before you make your next purchase  and make a note of what you are doing, feeling or thinking in the moment leading up to the purchase. Becoming aware of unhealthy spending cues can help you find ways to replace them with healthier habits  so you can avoid extra spending.

Pause to appreciate the planet

Planet

Pause to appreciate the planet. Go on an evening stroll or sit outside, alone or with family members, to fully appreciate the beauty of the sun setting. Observing natural beauty, like a sunset, enhances your mood and strengthens connections with others.
