We are always working to improve our lives. We want to be more successful, healthier, safer, and better prepared for all the crazy, strange, and unexpected things life throws at us. The nature of unexpected things makes them difficult to prepare for! All you can do is do your best. As part of doing your best, “do, do” Hastings & Hastings’ 4 “do’s” for a better 2016!
- Reassess You Insurance Coverage
Insurance premiums are one of those expenses that are just a part of life. If you own a car and are a driver, you MUST have insurance. This doesn’t mean you need to be paying an arm and a leg for your coverage. Make it a priority to reassess your current coverage in 2016. We are willing to bet you can find some simple savings! Cutting your monthly premium by even $10 a month can add up big over the course of the year.
- Take a Defensive Drive Class
Speaking of savings, if you take a defensive driving class, your insurance provider may offer you a discount on your monthly premium. That isn’t the only benefit of taking a defensive driver class. It will also make you a better driver. It has been proven that defensive driving helps you stay safe on the road.
- Get More Rest
It is almost impossible to list all the benefits that come with getting more rest. Try going to bed just a half hour early each night. We guarantee you will feel more focused, energetic and sharp all day long. Getting more rest will also help you combat drowsy driving, which has proven to be almost as dangerous as drunk driving!
- Stay off the Phone
Distracted driving causes thousands of accidents each year. Put your phone away the moment you sit down behind the wheel of your car. Make a commitment to yourself to stay away from your phone while driving during 2016.
