Life Retreat’s Friday Weekly Round Up

bonds and interest rates

You can pay off your bond years ahead of time and save thousands of rands in interest payments. Redeeming your
bond early and paying less is easy. All you have to know is how the system works and how to beat it.

When interest rates drop, don’t be tempted to reduce your monthly payments – continue making payments at the higher level. Try to repay as much as you can when interest rates are low to achieve even higher savings.

If you’re an endowment bond holder, you should review your policy and investment performance at regular intervals to be sure that it keeps pace with the amount outstanding on the bond. Also, re-arrange your policy to ensure it matures at the same time as the amended repayment date for your bond.

Here’s a wrap up of what you missed here at Life Retreat. Enjoy your weekend!

However, according to Alan Aragon, a leading nutritionist, “The most important factor for muscle size and strength is your total daily protein intake. So, include at least 20g of protein at every meal and snack.” Here are three easy ways to quickly build muscles and increase muscle strength

I am seeing more and more how people are struggling to get good, healing, restful sleep at night, and so I have put some excellent tips and links into this newsletter to get you going!
