Happy New Year Fairfax!

As we are jumping right into 2023, I want to connect you with our Fairfax family and help you achieve your 2023 goals. Based on several surveys, here are the top 6 New Year’s Resolutions — I like to call them Goals — along with links to local and digital resources for each.

Exercise More: many of these businesses are offering membership sales this month.

Eat Healthier: bowls, smoothies, and organic produce are still popular!

Save More Money: Advisors suggest you begin with a budget, review your expenses, and set financial goals. Check out these Best Money Saving Apps suggested by Bankrate.com.

  • Digit — Best for optimizing savings decisions
  • Qapital — Best for those who are motivated by visuals
  • Long Game — Best for a game-like experience
  • Chime — Best for effortless savings
  • Current — Best for young adults seeking a banking alternative
  • Acorns — Best for novice investors
  • Mint — Best for financial newcomers

Spend More Time with Family and Friends: a game night at home is always fun, but here are some ideas to get out and about together!

Reduce Stress: these popular meditation apps are great tools to help with relaxation and better sleep.

Refresh Yourself: save at least one night a week to do something that refreshes you.
