National Family Wellness Month

May 7, 2018 | Children & Education, Retirement, Women

May marks #National Family Wellness Month, a time to focus on health and well-being together by getting active after the long winter, eating right, and thinking positive.

As a top-ranked investment and wealth manager in the DC area, SageVest Wealth Management thinks that your family’s sense of well-being should also extend to your finances. A strong financial foundation fosters confidence, security, and peace of mind, supporting a healthy and happy lifestyle for you and those you care about. Here are some tips to ensure financial wellness for the whole family.

The Building Blocks Of Financial Education For Kids

Encouraging your kids to develop a healthy relationship with money helps build confidence, self-esteem, financial independence, and healthier relationships. Our sister site, SageVest Kids, offers a wealth of financial literacy resources for kids, tweens, and teens, including:

As a reminder, every 18-year old should execute important legal documents, upon becoming a legal adult. These include a will, a Power of Attorney, and a medical directive, as you’re no longer your child’s legal guardian to make decisions on their behalf.

Money Management For Young Adults

Whether you’re Gen Y, a Millennial, or Gen Z, right now your life’s full of important personal, lifestyle, and career choices. Make sure your financial decisions support both your current and future wellbeing.

Finances For Your Family

SageVest Wealth Management is a family-focused financial planning firm, dedicated to connecting you with your wealth in meaningful ways.

  • Your home is the heart of family living. Our blog features a range of articles, designed to help protect what for most people is your largest asset. Examples include the importance of a home equity loan, and which home expense records to keep.
    • For #National Family Wellness Month, calm the chaos and declutter. Decluttering improves your home’s function, appearance and value. It also boosts mental wellbeing and healthful living for you and your family [1].
  • As a woman-owned financial advisory firm, we’re particularly attuned to women’s financial needs, whether you’re part of a couple, a single mom, the household breadwinner, or following divorce or the death of a spouse.
  • Giving often directly reflects personal and family values. It may include gifting to family members, donating to charity, or long-term legacy planning, SageVest Wealth Management can help maximize your future gifts, especially in light of recent tax reform.
    • Giving comes in many forms. For #National Family Wellness Month, consider volunteering which offers you real physical and mental health benefits [2].
