There are many aspects to stability. Some aspects include; exercise, housing, drinking enough water, paying bills as well as obtaining and maintaining employment. Use the bullet points below as a form of reference.
The average amount and time for exercise is 30 minutes at east 3 times per week. Be sure you are moving for the thirty minutes, ride a bike, take a walk, do yoga, run etc. If you have limitations such as disabilities you can do a google search for more ideas with exercising.
Most financial experts agree that your housing costs need to below 35% of your overall income. Take your income and multiply it by .35, that total then becomes a goal for housing costs to not be exceeded. If your housing costs are greater than 35% of your income then your housing costs may be interfering with your stability.
Drinking enough water is crucial for our brains to function. When we do not drink enough water, it makes it difficult to think, problem solve and our over all stability is compromised. *Be sure to check with your Dr. when changing any dietary patterns.
4. Pay Your Bills
Paying bills (especially on time) is crucial to obtaining and maintaining stability. It is crucial to create a budget and make a plan for how and when you will pay your bills. There are multiple ideas on how set and maintain a budget. Find a budget that works for you and dedicate yourself to following it. Writing down all of your bills along with the due date is a great place to start.
5. Get and Keep a Job (if you don't already have one)
Having a job (or another form of income) is also an aspect of stability. If you currently do not have a job and would like to have one, check out your local department of workforce services. This can be a great resource for getting a job. Also, create a resume if you do not have one. Having a resume is a quick way to apply for jobs and helps you to look more serious about obtaining employment when job seeking. You can find free templates online or through Word Docs. If you are thinking of changing jobs, DO NOT QUIT your job until you have secured a new one. ALWAYS try your best to give two weeks notice at your current job. It is always best to avoid leaving on bad terms or to not burn bridges when possible (and most times it is possible).
Taking a look at each of these areas will help you to both obtain and maintain stability. Thanks for reading and have a great week!
