Made it to the end! To wrap up this exciting financial journey, Lapin focuses on practices that will make you a better person overall, not just with regard to finances. Self-care is important to creating balance in life and relationships. Creating a system to take care of your self, your home, your relationships, and your finances will go a long way to making sure all the steps that have been covered up to this point continue to work. It’s not a financial “diet” it’s a lifestyle change, and working on yourself as well as your finances will count for more than just a quick fix.

Step 12: Take care of your self.

A lot of things in your life are connected, Lapin rationalizes that if you’re going to have success, it takes a lot more than just working on your financial life. Here are some other things you can do.

  • Organize your home: add a plant, re-arrange furniture. Make sure that your space feels like yours and is your oasis.
  • Go to the gym: Ugh, don’t remind me. If I see the gym fee on my account every month, then yeah, I better go to it. Besides, once it’s done you’ll feel better about your life and how to handle any situation that may be stressful.
  • Eat healthy: Having a balanced lifestyle includes making smart choices about what goes into your body. I healthy financial diet and a healthy food diet are about making better choices that will help you out in the long term.
  • Practice self-care: For me, this is mostly in the form of painting my nails, doing a beauty mask, or watching YouTube videos. Whatever your zen is, find it and practice it to find less stress in your life.

Being a healthy, put-together person is surprisingly good advice in managing finances. If things are working in tandem, then if one area of your life is improved, they are all improved. {Easier said than done, but worth a try.}

Overall, I’m glad I read this book as a basic foundation for money, but I don’t think my financial education is done yet! Thanks for reading along with me during these 12-steps! 🙂

Stay tuned for more learning challenges like this in the future!
