Did you know you can sell all or a portion of a life insurance policy, even term insurance?

What a year 2021 has been. We’ve seen our lives turned upside down. We’ve spent so much of the year adapting to social distancing, connecting with each other over Facetime or Zoom or phone calls. We’ve shopped online more than in-store, finding that you really can buy just about anything online, and have it delivered within days.

But it gets old, right? Of course it does. In fact, over the past five or so years, there have been a number of studies showing that spending money on experiences (rather than things) is the key to happiness. There are many reasons behind this, but basically it comes down to this: the happiness we get from things fades. Experiences, on the other hand, bond us together, build lasting memories, and ignite passions.

With that in mind, and with the end of the year approaching, have you considered taking a trip? It doesn’t have to be an incredibly-pricey cruise or all-inclusive resort, and you don’t even have to board a plane to disconnect from the day-to-day grind. 

Here’s an idea: Have you been to one of our national parks lately? There are over 400 national parks, all over the United States. The crowds are generally down this time of year, making it a great time to get away for a little “reset” before the holiday season kicks into high gear.

What are the most popular national parks?
