Habits That Support Your Health & Wealth

Keith Wetjen |

Helping you pursue a life well-balanced is core to everything we do at Entrust Wealth Partners and with good reason - everyone from scientists and health gurus to executive coaches and money experts stress the importance of achieving balance as a catalyst to success. How then, can you support your health and wealth and achieve more balance in your life? By adopting small, consistent changes to our thinking and behaving that move us closer to our goals. 

Read on for our top tips for supporting a life well-balanced when it comes to your health and wealth:

  1. Keep Things Simple

One of the biggest reasons people fail when establishing new habits is because they make things too complicated. Complex strategies and routines are much harder to maintain because they require too much work and, often, complexity can actually be the enemy of progress. 

Instead, focus on building simple and sustainable habits. For example, when it comes to nutrition - focus on eating a majority of whole foods, most of the time. When it comes to exercise, aim to incorporate movement you enjoy into your day - such as walking your dog or playing with your grandchildren at the playground. When it comes to your finances, seek to spend less than you make and invest the difference.

  1. Maintain a Growth Mindset

As with all areas of life, your mindset is one of the most critical factors impacting your overall health and wealth. Research shows that adopting a growth mindset can improve your quality of life and increase your lifespan. By practicing a growth mindset, you commit to learning over failure, excellence over perfection, and taking appropriate risks over settling for the status quo. 

Maintaining a growth mindset also allows you to create effective habits and efforts that help you reach your goals. The more you practice a growth mindset, the more you’ll build your brain muscle to think and act in this way. You’ll be amazed at how changing your thinking can significantly impact your overall health and wealth.  

  1. Remember that Small Wins Equal Big Results

Most people look for the fastest route to change when trying to manage weight, improve fitness, or grow wealth. We want the easiest, quickest solution to our problems in a technology-driven society. Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts to achieving real, lasting results with anything in life. The key to achieving true health and wealth is to focus on making small changes that last. 

Small, consistent steps towards your goal are more realistic than diving into drastic changes. And, with consistency, even the most minor steps can lead to noticeable, practical results as, over time, the sum of your efforts will compound and result in more remarkable, more sustainable change. 

  1. Enlist Support

One of the most valuable habits you can develop is asking for help when you need it. Many people don’t ask for help because they assume they should already know the answer or be able to do something themselves. However, asking for help can be a powerful tool to ensure your future success. 

Seeking accountability and support from a friend or family member can help you stay motivated and talking to experts can help you build an effective strategy to reach your long-term goals. This includes your Entrust Wealth Partners advisor who can help you break down your goals into smaller, more actionable steps that move you closer to success.
