Have you ever stopped for a moment to assess your life? Are you well prepared for a long, happy, healthy and financially abundant future? If not, it may be a good idea to take a life check.
With so many of us living day to day, it’s easy to lose sight of the big picture. And, with the Australian government (love them or loathe them) launching a new website to help the over 45’s take a free ‘life check,’ now could be the perfect time to invest a little time to prepare for the future.
After all, there’s no time like the present…
What is a life check?
With the average life expectancy of 82.5, we’re living far longer than we used to. These days, old age is less about seeking a quiet retirement and more about creating choices to make the most of the later part of your life.
The online life check is a tool to get you thinking about your priorities and has identified four key areas that lead to a happier and more fulfilling life:
- Social Life
While eating a healthy diet, enjoying your job, and making time for leisure activities are all important pieces of the puzzle, the area of finance is one where many people struggle the most. If you’re someone who constantly struggles with finances, it may also be a good time to take a debt check too.
Why take a debt check?
A debt check is the first step towards gaining financial freedom. After all, it’s essential to know where you are in order to know where you’re going, before we help you get out of debt and create a more fulfilling future.
Some of us prefer to avoid the issue altogether. Avoiding the issue, however, can eventually affect every other area of your life. For example, if you have a significant debt hanging over your head, then this could lead to a lot of stress. This, in turn, can lead to more serious health issues. And let’s be honest, how much fun can you have in life if you’re having to work all hours in order to pay back your creditors? Being debt free, on the other hand, gives you a lot more choices on how you want to spend your time and money in the future.
Whether retirement is soon approaching or decades away, taking a debt check means you can take a step in the right direction to achieve financial freedom. And, in doing so, you’ll probably find your health, work life and social life can improve as well.
