Have you noticed the correlation between health and wealth? Since most successful people take care of their bodies, as well as the other aspects of their life, this short article will reveal several simple, small, and easy-to-do changes that can be made to our daily routine, and diet (frequently referred to as The 1% Solution – 100 days to maximum wealth, health, and wisdom), so we will set the stage for big rewards in the near future.
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 daily tallies up to a lot of excess calories, and almost $150,000 in lost money over thirty years. If you forego the extra food such as desserts or super-sized helpings, 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 reach retirement age.
You would have less fat on your 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 a surgery, takes longer for larger people, and that ends up costing them more money.
Besides higher medical bills, try getting inexpensive life insurance when you are overweight. If you can get any 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, 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, fresh fruit, 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, sit-ups, jumping jacks, or a power walk). Plus, isometric exercises performed throughout the day, that can be performed 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 proceed to get wealthy!!
Taking care of your physical health will soon thereafter lead to you taking care of your financial health as well.
If you can control other things in your life, don’t you also want to control your health and wealth? 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, learn the simple exercises and stretches that just uses your own body, and avoid the wear and tear on your joints and ligaments using costly gym equipment?
You can eventually get yourself in much better shape both physically and financially. Stop making excuses, and begin today to get in the best shape of your life. Your purse or wallet will thank you, and as Nike says, Just Do It!!
As mentioned in a previous article, 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 down 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. Also, with an industry leading business opportunity, we can make great money, generate financial wealth, and enjoy our longer lives.
I hope you enjoyed this article about the simple and easy ways you can fight back against the “bad health conspiracy”, and how our wealth is connected to our health.
