Improve Your Health To Improve Your Wealth

Improve Your Health To Improve Your Wealth

The “improve my health resolutions” you have set for this year could be the key to also improve your wealth.

Every year we plan on some sort of change that we want for ourselves, such as losing weight, getting fit, giving up drinking, or even getting more sleep. But usually, you start to work on becoming a ‘new you’ until you’re back to your old habits in a few weeks. However, it doesn’t mean you already failed and it’s time to give up.

The year has just begun! There’s more time to get motivated to proceed with your health resolutions. It doesn’t hurt to know that it can also benefit you in a financial sense. This link between your health and wealth should encourage you even more to turn over a new leaf. Here’s what you can do.

Lose weight, gain wealth

Shopping the outer aisles, where all the healthy produce is at the supermarket, is very cost-effective. You can buy a bag of apples for less than a bag of expensive biscuits. Yes, snacking on biscuits can give you satisfaction. But eating apples for a week for the same cost is more satisfying on a different level.

The same can be said about cooking at home and eating out. Eating out can be fun. However, knowing how to cook for yourself is so much better in the long run.

Consider these to further inspire you to lose weight and save money:

  • You can potentially save on health bills.
  • Stick to a set diet to avoid food waste.
  • Take your lunch to work to save each day.

Get fit for your health and wallet

These health tips can help you get fit while you improve your wealth:

  • Try to walk or cycle everywhere you can. You can put a basket on your bike so you can ride to the shops. Also, parking will be a breeze.
  • Using your car less can help you save on petrol. With the costs of fuel lately, this is a no-brainer.
  • Hang at the gym instead of the pub.
  • Your gym membership is finally put to good use.
  • Bond with friends over a walk, rather than over coffee.

Give up drinking to bring the costs down

If you want to lose weight and get fit, you also have to give up the booze. This can be tough, but it’s worth it when you see how much you’ll save. If you’ve been to a bar lately, you’d know that a couple of cocktails is almost the cost of a week’s worth of food.

Remember that your choices are clouded when you’re inebriated. It’s too easy to do things that will cost you a lot of money under the influence of alcohol.

Sleep more to improve your health and wealth

Many studies have found that one of the negative effects of lack of sleep is poor decision making. A study by Britain’s Royal Society for Public Health found that if a person is awake for 17 hours, it’s equivalent to a blood alcohol concentration of 0.05%. It’s also the blood alcohol content that makes it illegal to drive in Australia. That’s not the kind of person you want to make decisions on your finances, right?
