On behalf of your Nova Scotia Lawyers Assistance Program (NSLAP) provider, Homewood HealthTM is pleased to provide the following:

"Starting a new calendar year can be exciting and refreshing, but it can also be stressful. January 1st typically brings renewed motivation with the gift of a clean slate and the desire for a promising year ahead. It’s often fulfilled with a focus on healthy eating and exercise to get back on track after the holiday season's indulgence. But January can also be full of transitions that can influence anxiety and concern. For some, it’s having to head back to work or school after enjoying some time away. For others, it’s increased pressure related to personal finances and how to manage expenses and income in the coming year, especially as bills for holiday spending start to arrive. For many more, the ups and downs of living through the COVID-19 pandemic and the unique financial challenges have given rise to the need for new ideas and thinking about financial preparedness. In this article, we'll look at ways to acknowledge and manage financial fatigue. We'll also share some tips that could help alleviate some of your concerns about money management in the coming year."
