Guessing you are in good health. Take the savings vs another plan and put in an hsa account. Don't use the account until you retire. You just increased your retirement savings.

Also, many times you can invest the funds in the HSA.

Max HSA from day 1

30m, single you should be good with high deductible plan. I have 2 kids and a wife and made a mistake getting the high deductible plan. Will be switching at next enrollment period.

CONTRACTORS: I have a quickfire round of questions because I'm really trying to get back into setting good habits now that I'm consulting full-time again.

How do you typically go about preparing your day?

1) What's your process?

2) What are some MUSTs you prioritize each day to maintain your work-life balance, mental health, etc. (i.e., phones/email notifications off after X PM; no work on the weekends, etc)

3) Must haves/dos for productivity and time management?

Thanks in advance!
