Is it Time for a Paycheck Checkup?

There's no better time to check your withholding status and make sure your paycheck accurately reflects the taxes you should be paying. These paycheck checkups are a great practice when something happens in your life that may change your tax status, such as getting married or getting divorced, having a baby, getting a new job, or getting a raise or promotion at work. You can also adjust your withholding status if you just want to change how much tax is withheld due to other circumstances.

During your paycheck checkup, you can also check other factors such as how much you're contributing to your health insurance or 401(k). These expenses can also impact your tax liability.

5-Minute Core-Strengthening Workout

Even if you don't have a ton of time to dedicate to a core workout, this circuit will get you going and only takes 5 minutes. Here are the moves:

  • 1-minute high plank: Your hands are on the ground, your arms are straight, and you are holding your body up with your arms and a tight core.

  • 30-second side plank on each side: One hand is on the ground, your arm is straight, and the other arm is in the air. You can do a side plank with your feet stacked on top of each other (hardest), your feet staggered (a little easier), or your bottom knee on the ground.

  • 1-minute boat pose: Your feet are in the air and your arms are by your side reaching to your feet. You can do this pose with your legs bent (easier) or straight out (harder).

  • 1-minute crunches: Lift your shoulders and upper back off the ground without pulling your neck.

  • 1-minute dead bug: Lay on your back and alternate extending out the opposite arm and the opposite leg at the same time.
