We all know we can do more to improve our finances. There are new habits we can implement. The hard part is not in identifying what to do, it’s in sticking with those new habits so that they will have the kind of positive impact they are meant to.
There are several ways that you can make sure a new habit sticks, as proven by psychologists. The first is by focusing on the big picture always. It can be hard to see the value in a new habit at the very beginning, before it has had time to take effect. That’s when we are most likely to give up. But if you continue to remind yourself what life will be like in the long run if you stick with it, you’ll be more likely to push through and let the habit take hold.
