As you may or may not know, both of my daughters attended the local Montessori school here in Huron. One main tenet of that education is “teaching the whole child”. Obviously not those words exactly but that sentiment isn’t too dissimilar to what I strive to bring into our relationship as we work together. This is the main reason many of our conversations get off the topic of finances and into conversations about what is going on in your life. If I am unable to learn what is truly important to you, then it hinders how I can help put your financial pieces together for you. In essence when you hear me say “Life-Centered Financial Planning” I’m trying to address the whole person, not just a small piece of your world. Thus, the reason behind these emails.
The topic I’m sending out today originated from conversations I had with clients over the past week: sleep; rest; keeping a body clock schedule. I’m aware that this won’t apply to everyone, many are still working and some have the discipline necessary to keep to a schedule. But, if you need a little assistance, or you have a friend or loved one who would find this useful, please share this as you see fit.
I have to credit Heather, my wife, with the link below. Ironically when I brought this subject up to her she had also been researching it for her students. Here is a link to an NBC news story she came across and I thought it summed things up well.
Within the article there is also a short video with help on meditation to help you sleep. You may also find it informative.
Please remember that we are “here” and available for you. If you have any questions or concerns, financial or otherwise, please do not hesitate to call or email. If you have friends, family, or neighbors you feel would benefit from a conversation with me, I’m more than happy to have a call or jump on a Zoom meeting with them.
As always, I hope that you are well, safe, and staying healthy!
