How To Opt Into Holistic Wealth in 2024
Happy New Year! As we step into the new year, it’s the perfect time to explore actionable strategies for opting into holistic wealth in 2024. In 2023, many people suffered the loss of loved ones, experienced grief and tragedy, and many others suffered from chronic illnesses or the breakdown of a relationship. With rising inflation in 2023, many people also suffered from financial hardships. Whatever your “white plastic bag moment”, (i.e. a moment of significant setback in life), this episode of the Holistic Wealth podcast, provides tips and strategies to bounce back and build resilience by opting into Holistic Wealth in 2024. Holistic living is a healthy way to live a balanced life and involves making intentional choices every day. This holistic lifestyle is an interconnected way of living that focuses on you as a whole and impacts your overall well-being.
What are “White Plastic Bag Moments”?
I coined the term ‘White plastic bag moments’ in a context that resonates with the depths of life’s unpredictability. In my viral article, I vividly recounted the heart-wrenching experience of losing my husband just three hours after entering a hospital. Three hours later I walked out of the hospital gripped by grief and holding a white plastic bag that the nurses gave me, containing his belongings, I emerged into a world forever altered. This pivotal moment, occurring only eight weeks after the birth of my second child, became the catalyst for this “white plastic bag” concept. ‘White plastic bag moments’ encapsulate those transformative instances when life, abruptly and irreversibly, takes an unexpected turn, leaving individuals grappling with the profound realization that their existence will never be the same again.

Opt out of Comparison in 2024:
Opting out of comparison is critical to holistic wealth. Social comparison theory suggests that
individuals determine their own social and personal worth based on how they stack up against others.
