7 Things I Do Every Day In Quarantine To Stay Productive With My Money

As we all know, these are hard times. No one knows how long social distancing will last, or where the economy is heading. Those are the things that are out of your control. What you can control are the things you do every day.

1) Read The News (Just A Little Bit)

    This may seem obvious, but it’s vital to stay informed. The trick, however, is to read the news sparingly. It’s easy to feel anxious about the state of the world, it’s natural, but it’s also important to limit how much exposure you’re getting. Stay informed, but set a timer and that’s it.

    2) Check In On Your Investments

    Wherever you invest, it’s time to be more vigilant than ever. The stock market is going wild from day to day—is your money secure? Is it time to move your money elsewhere? Are you in contact with your bank? Beware, phone lines will be frustratingly long, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be keeping tabs.

    3) Generate New Income

    Though getting a new job is all but impossible right now as unemployment soars, there are ways to make money at home. And there are ways to make money without putting your savings at risk. That’s why I use Try2BFunded to invest. After passing a qualifying round, I got access to $100,000 to invest with. After 6 weeks, I started seeing my 60%.

    4) Engage With Your Financial Community

    Who do you talk with when you talk about money? If the answer is “no one,” you need to rectify that. And quickly. Using your at-home time, find a community that lets you speculate, strategize, and create an active discourse with. I found a strong community at Score Priority. It has a little bit of everything—colorful characters, experts, newcomers and downright geniuses.

    5) Study Up

    How much do you really know about money? With a wealth of resources at your disposal, get into it and start to learn. There are youtube tutorials to watch, Investopedia tutorials to comb through, and so much more. The possibilities are endless, so what’s your excuse? Get off your butt and smarten up.

    6) Plan For The Future

    With the economy changing this rapidly, I think it’s important to think and rethink what your future looks like. Are you on track for retirement? Do you want to adjust your aimed retirement age? It’s time to reflect.

    7) Take A Break

    With all of the madness, it’s important to take stock of the things in your life that aren’t money. It’s a cliche for a reasons, but money really isn’t everything. So enjoy your family, pursue your hobbies, and remember to take care of your mental and physical health.
