Have you noticed the correlation between wealth and health – by that I mean most successful people take care of their bodies as well as the other aspects of their life.
Heavier people are generally not as financially healthy. The excess weight is frequently caused by consuming too much food. Today, all across the globe, we tend to eat a lot of fast food. The money goes out of the wallet and the pounds go on the body.
The extra five or six bucks you spend a day tallies up to a lot of excess calories and over $140,000 in lost money over thirty years. If you forego the extra food such as desserts or super-sized helpings, then sock away the six bucks a day (estimated cost of the extra food), and earn 5% interest on your money, you could be almost $150,000 richer when you face retirement.
You would have less fat on the body and more fat in your bank account.
The more you eat leads to a lifestyle that frequently includes more medical problems and these problems are the most costly expenses people face in life. Overweight individuals tend to have more doctor visits because their body cannot support the weight. Many knee replacements could be avoided if people would lose the weight. Illness and chronic diseases tend to affect obese people more. Recovery time for an injury, or surgery, takes longer for larger people and that ends up costing more.
Besides higher medical bills, try getting inexpensive life insurance when you are overweight. If you get coverage at all, you pay a lot more for it. Statistics show that obese people live seven years less than average weight people. Giving up seven years of your life and having less money while you are alive, does not make sense.
When you start taking care of your body, with an emphasis on both nutrition and fitness, you feel so much better. It energizes you and affects all areas of your life. When you start eating healthier, you can see the change in your body. It creates a healthier mind and with a healthier mind, you are better able to concentrate on finances and take care of the business side of your life.
Our nutrition routine can be as simple as: staying hydrated by drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day; eating 6 little meals instead of 3 standard meals a day; and snacking throughout the day on nuts, grains, and pre-cut fresh vegetables.
By weaving our fitness routine throughout our day, we can prevent wasting time and money at the gym and avoid expensive workout gear in our home. Our fitness routine can be as simple as starting the day with a brisk 10 minute workout (push-ups, setups, jumping jacks, or a power walk) and performing isometric exercises throughout the day at your desk, in the kitchen, or in the bathroom, using the counter top as support.
Studies have shown that larger folks actually make less money. If money motivates you, then following reverse logic, you would want to get healthy first and then get wealthy.
Taking care of your body now will lead you to very soon taking care of your financial health. Maybe this is the motivation you need!
If you can control certain things in your life, don’t you want to control these things? Instead of going on a diet, don’t you want to change your thinking about food and eating? Instead of wasting time and money at the gym, don’t you want to change your thinking about fitness and learn the simple exercises and stretches that use your body as your gym and avoid the wear and tear on joints or ligaments?
You can get in shape both physically and financially. Stop making excuses and begin today to get in the best shape of your life; your pocketbook will thank you. And, as Nike says, Just Do It!
As mentioned in a previous post on this blog, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chief Medical Correspondent at CNN, has reported that “Practical Immortality may now be within our grasp.”
So now the question becomes, “how do we slow the rate of aging and avoid the frailty that would make longevity less desirable?”
With antioxidant supplements, we can slow our rate of aging; with a nutrition and fitness routine, we can avoid frailty and improve our health; and with an industry leading business opportunity, we can make great money and generate financial wealth.
