Springing into Summer: How WorkLife can help you achieve your goals

With the world gradually creeping back to normal, it fills us with hope that this summer is the light at the end of a very long tunnel.

Despite snow in April and enough rain in May to last us a lifetime, we are focusing on summer here at WorkLife. The longer days and lighter evenings bring about a sense of optimism that has us excited for what summer will hold. With the world gradually creeping back to normal, it fills us with hope that this summer is the light at the end of a very long tunnel.

With lockdown shifting all of our priorities and forcing us to re-evaluate the goals we deem most important, now is the time to refocus and create a plan for how to hit those goals, whatever they might be.  

Here's how your WorkLife membership can help you smash your goals this summer.

Perhaps lockdown has had you falling a little out of love with your home, having spent so much time there. From walls needing a lick of paint, to dodgy DIY attempts that need rectifying, your home should be your sanctuary. Now's the time to get stuck into making your house a home. With money back when you spend at shops such as Halfords, B&Q or Wickes, simply use your PureCard to spend and save.

Similarly, your home might be the last place you want to see at the moment! If you feel compelled to spend time out of the house enjoying the best of what hospitality has to offer, your WorkLife membership can help. Enjoy 15% off on Virgin Experience days or various deals on a number of restaurants including TGI Friday’s and wagamama with your PureCard. You can spend quality time with your loved ones without breaking the bank.

On the other hand, maybe eating out isn’t for you at the moment and you're actually looking to reinvigorate your health kick that dwindled off earlier in the year (at least for us it did!). With gyms now open, see what deals you can get using the My Gym Discounts available to you through your WorkLife membership. From group exercise classes, online memberships to discounted gym passes, there's an exercise out there for everyone. If you're already sorted for your gym membership, but feel like some new gym clothes are in order, check out My Active Discounts to see how much you can save on amazing brands like FitBit and Garmin.

But if you’re reading this and thinking “cocktails on the beach are more up my street”, we don't blame you! However, with the extra financial strain we've all been under over the last year, if you're planning a getaway later in the year, it might be necessary to be smarter with your savings. OpenMoney can help to ensure that you will be well on your way to that holiday. Simply link all of your banks to the OpenMoney app, view all of your transactions in one easy place, set budgets and see where you can start saving money.

Whatever your ambitions this summer, your WorkLife membership can help. Find out more about the benefits available to you by visiting your WorkLife portal. Log in and see how we can assist you in making up for lost time over the past year.
