Healthy Investment Advice
We’re a busy family, so we spend money on things that make our life more convenient.
Two words to sum up the culture we inspire?
Cheap and easy.
Just how I want to be defined. ?
Think about it. How often do your purchases meet one or both of those words?
And when we are asked, moms, what we want to do about dinner, how many of us answer, “Something cheap and easy.”?
Years of fast food in the ? on the way to a practice or game has made its mark on my body. I’m obese and unhealthy. And I did it to myself in the name of cheap and easy.
I’m certain I’m not alone.
Today is my day 1. Again. For the 4th day of the 4th month of pledging to get myself healthy, it is my day 1.
You see, day 1 is always exciting. Day 1 is filled with anticipation. Day 1 is the day I KNOW I will be successful. So, every day has to be day 1.
I won’t lie. This healthy lifestyle is expensive. Way more expensive than a value meal in a drive thru.
But I had to hit bottom to realize the cost of getting healthy the natural way is way LESS expensive than the tests, medicines, and diagnoses headed my way if I don’t get healthy.
Is it expensive?
Instead of medications which create more problems, I am spending my money on real food and CLEAN products. It’s worth it because I’m worth it.
Where does your money go? To prevention or cure? How did you come to that conclusion?
