Embrace the May 2015 Call to Action (You Could Win $100!)

Embrace the May 2015 Call to Action (You Could Win $100!)

May has finally arrived—and in the wise words of the singer Fergie, we’ll be spending it up in the gym, workin’ on our fitness.

It's partly because summer will be here in just a few short weeks—and partly because it’s National Fitness Month!

Believe it or not, being physically healthy translates to better financial health, too.


Get started with a free financial assessment.

Case in point: A recent TD Bank survey found that even though just 36% of people overall were happy with their money lives, that number jumped to 65% among those in tip-top physical shape.

Another interesting tidbit about the fitness-financial connection? Many of the smart strategies you can use to shed pounds or save more money are interchangeable.

Which brings us to our May call to action: What healthy fitness habit have you applied to your financial life—and what benefits have you seen, as a result?

Maybe your obsession with activity trackers inspired you to download an app that monitors your monthly spending habits—which, in turn, helped you identify where you could scale back.

Or perhaps your gym buddy was so instrumental in encouraging you to attend your Monday night bootcamp class that you decided to seek out a money mentor, who's helped you set—and achieve—your big savings goals for the first time.

Whatever it is, we want to hear about it. No, scratch that: We want to see it.

That’s right. Based on the fantastic submissions we received last September and December, we’re bringing back the photo challenge!

So instead of sharing your story in the comments below, please submit an original photo depicting your fitness-cum-financial habit to submissions@learnvest.com—along with a brief description of what the photo is meant to convey—and you’ll be entered for a chance to win $100!
