Manage your health like a bank account + HEALTHY RECIPEOct 18, 2021
Saving money is a lot like living a healthy lifestyle. Success comes from setting priorities, making sacrifices, and taking small actions every day that add up over time.
If you’ve already decided to eat right and exercise regularly, then congratulations! You’re on your way to building a positive balance of health.
- Now, every time you eat an apple instead of a candy bar, you’ve made a deposit.
- Every workout is interest earned.
- Every good night’s sleep, every little step of self-care… all more in your positive balance!
To start, make a list of your own health assets and potential roadblocks. Set an initial goal, and when you’ve reached it, set another that’s a little more challenging. Get a coach if you have questions or need support.
Sounds like Personal Finance 101, doesn’t it? But that’s also PRIME advice for managing that “health account.”
When you’re ready to draw on your savings and spend a bit, you’ll be ready. Maybe it’s when you reach a goal and you give yourself a small reward. Or it could be applying the power of your new habits to an activity or project, like running a 5K. And on the rare occasion when you slip a bit on eating right and exercising, you’ll have a solid baseline to support you.
