The biggest step we take in life is between knowing and doing. How did you go measuring your money going in and out? Found it hard to maintain? Hopefully not, but if so, associate the task with pleasure. Make it fun by playing your favourite music, grabbing your favourite food and assuming any position you like (hammock, couch, floor, bed).
You could reward yourself with a treat (foot massage at home, time off, extra hugs & kisses – this is where your partner gets involved and is the best bit). You should also set a specific time to do it (eg Money Mondays, Wealth Wednesdays or Finance Fridays). Do get yourself a support person and work towards a goal together. By being accountable and helping someone else, your task of managing money will become easier.
