How To Opt into Holistic Wealth in 2024
Welcome to the very first episode of the Holistic Wealth Podcast of 2024, with your host and The Mother of Holistic Wealth, Keisha Blair. As we step into the new year, it’s the perfect time to explore actionable strategies for opting into holistic wealth in 2024. Join us for invaluable tips to optimize your well-being, finances, and overall life satisfaction. 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 provides tips and strategies to bounce back and build Resilience by opting into Holistic Wealth in 2024.
What are “White Plastic Bag Moments”?
Keisha Blair coined the term ‘White plastic bag moments’ in a profoundly moving context that resonates with the depths of life’s unpredictability. In her viral article, she vividly recounts the heart-wrenching experience of losing her husband just three hours after entering a hospital. Three hours later she walked out of the hospital gripped by grief and holding a white plastic bag that the nurses gave her, containing his belongings, she emerged into a world forever altered. This pivotal moment, occurring only eight weeks after the birth of her second child, became the catalyst for Blair’s 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.

What You Will Learn:
The Holistic Wealth Approach:
Cultivate a positive mindset to attract abundance. Embrace the power of gratitude and mindfulness as essential components of holistic wealth. Start your day with affirmations and set the tone for prosperity. The Holistic Wealth Mindset (developed by Keisha Blair in her book), outlines the benefits of embracing the Holistic Wealth mindset, especially during times of setbacks.
Opt out of Guilt and Shame:
Learn practical tips to opt out of shame, guilt and regret. Name those “dry bones” (i.e. negative emotions) name them, face them, and come to terms with them to powerfully move forward. This is all about reinvention and making space for what’s new in 2024.
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. In a world connected through social media, the constant barrage of
curated success and highlight reels, especially as we start the new year can fuel feelings of inadequacy and undermine
your sense of accomplishment. It’s critical to be intentional about what we let into our sacred space in 2024.
Opt into Financial Fitness:
Learn practical financial tips to empower your holistic wealth journey. From budgeting and saving to having regular money date nights in 2024, discover how to build a solid financial foundation and achieve your money goals. Embracing your personal financial identity is also critical to financial self-care. The free Personal Financial Identity quiz is available on the Institute on Holistic Wealth website.
Opt into Positive Relationships:
Holistic wealth extends beyond finances, encompassing meaningful relationships. Learn about ways to nurture connections, build a supportive community, and foster personal growth through positive interactions. Toxic relationships are a drain on your energy and prevent you from achieving holistic wealth. Getting rid of toxic relationships helps you to get over the “white plastic bag moments” in life by tuning out negative messages and emotions and being laser-focused on your goals and life purpose.
Opt into Spiritual Self-Renewal:
Spiritual renewal is critical for maintaining hope and motivation during difficult times. Prayer, meditation, mindfulness and tuning in to your innermost thoughts and desires helps you to overcome the “white plastic bag moments” in life. Spiritual self-renewal is the nucleus for your mission and purpose in life. It allows us to breathe life into our purpose.
Opt into Living Life on Your Terms in 2024:
Staying in alignment with your values and living a life that is true to your goals and personal mission. Walking in alignment with your purpose starts with getting in alignment and living a life of integrity.
