Making your health a priority should be at the top of your list
Most of us have heard that it makes good sense to contribute to our retirement plan so the money will be there for us when we need it later in life.
Makes sense, right?
I believe the same concept is true for our health!
Every time we eat good quality food, exercise, interact in a healthy relationship, have jobs we enjoy, etc., we will see a return on our investment. Our health is even more important than money because if we don’t have our health, we don’t have anything. Like our retirement plans, the sooner you start making deposits the more you have to spend.
1. Declare what you are thankful for. You can say this in your mind or out loud.
2. Drink a glass of water immediately upon rising. This is like having an internal shower.
3. Eat breakfast as soon as possible after rising by sitting down at a table with minimal distractions and time to enjoy it. Avoid sugar or at least keep it to a minimum.
4. Chew each mouthful at least 30 times.
5. Decide on what you will cook for dinner so that you plan accordingly. This may be as simple as taking something out of the freezer or making a list of items that you need to buy during your lunch break or on the way home.
Think of these changes in your life as $$$$$ deposits. The more you deposit, the more it grows. Planning for good ongoing health is just as important as preparing for financial security later in life. After-all, I’m sure you aren’t planning on spending your cash on costly medical expenses.
You will be amazed at how these simple steps are effective in helping you build up your “health bank account” so your health is there for you when you need it.
The road to health can sometimes feel like a mountain to many people. If this sounds like you, change your thinking so that you can take the first step towards positive change. This may look like taking a 5 minute walk for a week each day that can evolve into a 10 minute walk each day the following week. We tend to think of things in terms of mountains or hurdles which can stop us in our tracks. Small steps lead to greater things.
