Top 60 Life Trends in October

From Workout-Bartered Subway Fare to Financial Literacy PSAs

— October 12, 2015 — Lifestyle
The top October 2015 life trends include city-sponsored public workout initiatives, speedy democratized divorce services and eye-opening financial literacy PSAs.

A project of the Mexico City Public Health Department, a program aiming to inspire healthy active lifestyles allows subway riders to trade workouts for subway fare. The initiative successfully targets and engages commuters with sedentary lifestyles in need of more physical activity.

A helpful financial literacy PSA from the Canadian Financial Literacy Database highlights how easy it is for one's finances to get out of hand if they are not being tracked. The animated spot from the Canadian financial literacy resource is one in a series that highlights the need for expanded knowledge around the handling of money.

The top October 2015 life trends showcase the changing role of government in inspiring healthy lifestyle and the responsibility of citizens to take advantage of such resources.
