When it comes to boosting your financial health, motivation is amazing. It just doesn’t last. And, while we’re at it, let’s also just rule out talent and effort as overriding factors in improving your finances. 

What experts are beginning to realise is the power of the environment on our ability to lose our bad habits and stick to good ones. Here are three tips you can use to reimagine your financial feng shui with Nuri. 

Help your good habits with a fresh start 

We’ve all been at that point where we’re scared to check our bank balance after a heavy weekend. In fact, a bank account can quickly become a source of horror when trying and failing to get good habits to stick. If you want to get a grip on your finances once and for all, one of the best things you can do is make a fresh start in a new bank account. 

A brand new account helps to cleanse all those negative spending cues that you come to associate with your bank. A new account is a pledge to yourself that you are committed both to creating positive financial change and a new financial environment built on a strong foundation of healthy spending and saving habits. 


Find a bank that does exactly what it says 

Your high street bank might have a trustworthy cashier with a kind smile, but all they can really offer you are low interest rates and somewhere to park your money. If you want growing your money and building a better financial future to be a big part of your life, you need to make it a big part of your financial environment. 

At Nuri, our goal is to empower everyone to grow their money. With us, you don’t just get a full German bank account, you also get access to savings plans, ways to become an investor in minutes and interest rates you won’t find anywhere else. 

We know that building your financial foundations is a unique and personal process, which is why we give you everything you need to take control of your journey, all in one place. Unlike traditional high street banks, we give you a financial environment that gives you every opportunity to explore growth. 

Remember to reward yourself

Most people are too strict when trying to revamp their money. In fact, an important part of creating a sustainable financial environment is rewarding yourself more often. 

A healthy financial routine should be something that you do every day, not just when you can’t put it off any longer. That doesn’t just mean saving and cutting costs, it also means thinking about ways to be kind to yourself. 

If you’ve been trying to clean up your bad financial habits but just can’t get them to stick, our tips to make your financial environment money friendly could be just what you need. You can’t rely on motivation on a bad day, so make sure you give yourself every opportunity to keep those great habits on track. 

Remember, your bank account is probably the most important financial environment for your money and, with very little effort, you’ll be growing your money every month before you know it.
