OPINION: I know what you are thinking. This is the time of year when loads of financial experts tell you what you should have done, how much you didn’t and what you need to do in 2022 to get back on track. .

Well I think if you’ve survived 2021 healthy, continued to have a stable income, maintained your relationships, and managed to stay sane through all of the Covid-19 blockages, that’s a big deal. tick in my book.

So instead of pointing fingers and harassing yourself to do something you haven’t done, my suggestion is to just enjoy the vacation.

We need this time to relax, spend time with our loved ones and take advantage of it to recharge our batteries.

One of my favorite hobbies is listening to music. I have a love-hate relationship with Spotify, but it’s very useful for making playlists.

The one I create every new year has songs that capture what I loved over the past 12 months. It usually contains my new favorite songs and artists, as well as classics that have been with me all my life.

So, I thought I would share this year with you. It includes bangers for the summer, which just might introduce you to something that isn’t throwaway pop.

David Boyle, sales and marketing manager for Mint Asset Management, produced a soundtrack for the summer that highlights the hard work people have put in to stay afloat over the past year.

I hope they will also make you smile a little and, perhaps, at the same time make you think about your own financial well-being.

Sorry I couldn’t help myself, I had to write something around the topic, so you might as well play the list and see if that inspires you to do something differently in 2022.

Who knows, it could make a huge difference before you head into that spirit in heaven.
