Have you actually thought about how much it costs you to be unhealthy? This infographic by Medifast can give you some idea as to the cost of being unhealthy.
So what are some of the financial costs of being unhealthy?
– Lower productivity and energy levels affecting your performance at work or in your business.
– Medical Costs later in life or even earlier in life (as I learned)
– Insurance premiums are higher.
– All that potential unpaid leave and/or missed opportunities
– A shorter lifespan and early mortality (reducing how much you can earn in your life)
All of this is easy to say but how easy is it to implement and start becoming healthy. Like getting to financial freedom, it can be hard to know where to start; that is where having a coach to guide you and get you started to becoming and being healthy can be one of the best financial decisions you will ever make. A coach will give you the steps and knowledge to achieve your health goals and change your life for the better.
Brad Cunningham of The Fit Shop says that:
“You need to begin looking at your health like a bank account.
We all understand that if you take too many withdrawals from your account you’re going to go into the red.
So you need to continually make deposits. Same with your health, overtime you choose a poor food option, drink alcohol, skip exercise you make withdrawals.
And soon enough you will hit the ‘red’ and in this case red meaning: sickness, illness, injury or other health concerns,
So moving forward focus on making more deposits daily for your health.”
Whilst it may take some time and patience to get to the level that you ideally want, it is worth it. You will feel better, you will look better and most importantly you will have the energy to LIVE LIFE!!
