Today’s focus is on financial awareness. We are all human, and part of being human is understanding that each decision we make has an outcome on our financial situation. A lot of our decisions are driven by our biases and environment.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • How often do you feel pressure to order something when you meet up with friends at a restaurant after work?
  • Do you feel the need to buy an expensive gift when attending a birthday party?
  • Have you ever justified going out to eat because you simply don’t feel like cooking?

If you have answered “yes” to any or all of these questions, you’re not alone.

Today’s challenge is to spend some time being aware of your behavior and how it  impacts your spending. Think about how you could improve your financial awareness?
