Often, the first thing we ignore during the holiday season is our own well-being. Focusing on making the holidays special for friends and family and enjoying the festivities yourself is important, but it’s also important to not let your daily routine unravel completely. That’s the key to holiday wellness.
Even the markets seem to be in the holiday spirit, shaking off trade and other concerns to continue the bull run. But this doesn’t mean that it’s time to be complacent. Don’t let the daily market noise, good or bad, distract you from your long-term financial goals. And, you may even consider taking advantage of rising stock prices to do a little holiday shopping. History and data show us that staying invested in rising markets is the right thing to do for your long-term strategy. That’s the key to financial wellness.
