This self improvement post is sponsored by LifeLock but all opinions expressed here are my own.
Over the summer, I don’t have much time to do anything for myself. The kids are home from school, the pool is open, and vacations need to be planned. I’m lucky I find time most days to get the beds made and dinner cooked. Once September comes around, I finally feel like I can breath again and that means there are a number of things that need to get checked off the to do list. Organize the medicine chest, take piles of stuff to the thrift store and get our finances in order. With the holidays right around the corner, I like to know how my finances are doing before pulling out those credit cards to start shopping! Since September is National Self Improvement Month, it makes sense to use this month to learn how to reduce stress, improve our health, and check on the status of our credit.

There are a number of scenarios that we encounter every single day that put each one of us at risk for identity theft. LifeLock knows what those issues are and has ways to help protect you!
Self Improvement Means Checking Your Credit!
- Ever open the mailbox and find 5 credit card applications in there? That is a huge risk to your credit! Thieves have been known to grab those applications and open up a line of credit in YOUR name! LifeLock protection reduces the amount of pre-approved credit card offers you receive.
- Ever shop at a mass market retailer only to listen to the news and realize that they had a huge data breech? Wonder if you shopped at that store during that time period? LifeLock provides notifications of these breaches so you can rest assured that your data is safe.
- Ever get a statement in the mail and wonder why there is a charge for a store you have never shopped at? LifeLock constantly monitors your bank or credit accounts for unauthorized purchases.
- Wonder if your computer transactions are as secure as you hope they are? LifeLock notifies and protects you against file sharing network searches and can provide peace of mind when you are shopping online.
When people think of the term ‘self improvement’ they usually think of their physical or mental health. Maybe they think about learning a new skill or going back to school for a degree.

Then, take a few more minutes to protect those accounts along with your credit and identity by signing up for LifeLock Plus.
