Who wouldn’t rather prevent a condition versus treating it? Some things are preventable with good habits and early detection.
Unfortunately, there is also rotten luck and genetics; although, that doesn’t negate the importance of preventative care. 😉
I propose that as we do preventative care for our physical and mental health, we can also do it for our financial health.
Prescriptions for our Finances
If there is a financial problem like debt or not enough money at the end of the month, we need to treat the problem. I’ve written several prescriptive articles pertaining to such things:
- A Roadmap out of Debt
- How to do Zero Based Budgeting
- Budgeting for the Future
- Budgeting with a Credit Card
- Financial Self Care in Recovery
However, once you’ve treated the problem and cleaned up your debt, you now get to focus on the prevention of these things occurring again. And I would argue that prevention is a bit more fun! 😉
