Live Your Life #sponsored

We are constantly amazed by the passion and support all of you bring to Black Girls RUN! Nation, and we want to continue building our community and inspiring women everywhere. As we grow Black Girls RUN!, we look to partner with people and brands who share our values, and we’re excited to work with Cricket Wireless during the LA Color Run — The Happiest 5k on the Planet.

Let’s face it, we have a lot on our plates. Work, kids, bills, errands, etc. The list is endless. We get pulled in so many different directions that sometimes we forget which path we want our life to take. It’s important that we pause and make time for ourselves—5 minutes of quiet time can go a long way.

Though life can be hectic, it’s important for us to look for ways to ease our stress.  And, we understand that oftentimes our stress is related to our finances. 

This week, we encourage you to look for ways you can take some of the stress out of your life. Set weekly or monthly savings goals. Look into a cell phone provider where you don’t have to worry about annual contracts, like Cricket Wireless.  Create a weekly/monthly budget.  If you’re looking at making a big purchase, do some online research to get the best bang for your buck.  Weekly meal planning can help, too.  And, while you’re at the grocery store, consider generic versus name brand. You can save a lot!   

We know life can get away from us sometimes, but we have to make time for ourselves and keep our life on track. Take 5 minutes. Create a budget. Do the things you need to do to stay on course.
