American Financial Benefits Center: 'Me Time' Continues to Be Important While Establishing a Career or Family

Clock Saying Time For Me

Graduating college is a significant milestone in a person’s life. Often, the years after college will be filled with days establishing a career, family or both. Graduates will often find themselves focusing on these new possibilities, for they represent exciting prospects that seem to fit in life after college. With this whirlwind of new opportunities, a person can easily lose focus of “me time.” During the stage of life where career and family issues are likely to claim the forefront of a person’s mental space, it is important to chalk out some time to invest in the most vital asset people have - themselves. American Financial Benefits Center, a document preparation company that helps student loan borrowers apply for federal income-driven repayment (IDR) plans, may be able to provide assistance that could help a person establish himself/herself as a priority in life.

“You’ve got to make sure you stay important to you,” AFBC Manager Sara Molina offered, “and that can sometimes get lost when a person is working on a family or a career. But self-fulfillment is always important.”

Since so many recent graduates are carrying student debt into this phase of their life, AFBC offers its customers assistance in applying for a federal repayment program that may lower the monthly payments on their loans. A person enrolled in an IDR will find recalculated monthly payments based on income level and family size. With more cash left over from monthly bills, people can afford to nurture the aspects of themselves that they wish to keep or initiate.

You've got to make sure you stay important to you, and that can sometimes get lost when a person is working on a family or a career. But self-fulfillment is always important.

Sara Molina

Manager at AFBC

To this end, the extra money saved from an IDR can be put towards experiences like a museum or gym membership, a personal vacation or a new hobby. Borrowers may be able to invest in the experiences that had previously been a priority in their life or could be personally rewarding in their future. By taking a little bit of time and energy away from the grind of career or family, a person can recharge his or her batteries, in a sense, allowing for a more successful transition from graduate to post-graduate life.

“People are going to be more happy if they take some time for themselves. Happy people tend to make better employees and tend to have better personal relationships. If an IDR allows you to claim more time or money to focus on your own self instead of your social and professional situations, then we feel they might be a good way to create harmony between those new concerns and your ‘me time,’” Molina added.
