There is no better investment than in your health – Jitin Anand
Have you made the best investment of your life yet? No? Its not too late, whatever age you might be at and whatever situation you might be in. Returns are guaranteed, 100%.
Do not just let the banks, mutual funds, bonds, stocks and real estate keep using your money. Keep some aside for the best thing in your life. If you have this thing, you can enjoy your life with or without money. If you don’t have this thing you cannot enjoy your life, what ever money you got. The thing is your HEALTH.
Whenever you are working on the various investment options, let health be your top priority. There are lots of ways you can invest in your health. Investment is low and results are real high. No broker can do this for you, you have to plan it yourself and implement it yourself.
Good Health is the greatest blessing of life. Life is a weary burden to a person of broken health. The richest man with bad health always suffers and groans. He is unhappy despite his great wealth.
Unfortunately, today we don’t protect our health well. Not as enough as we protect our other precious things. We let thieves steal it from us, and in many cases, almost every day. Those thieves are bad lifestyle habits.
We might have good intentions to protect our health but food and chemical industry has accumulated so much toxic around us that we keep damaging our health without even knowing.
What we can do in this scenario? I would say: Don’t be ignorant.
Everything revolves around what you eat and what is your lifestyle.
The true cost of an unhealthy lifestyle or little exercise, poor diet and smoking has been quantified by scientists who found that it can reduce lifespan by 23 years. People who develop largely preventable conditions like heart disease, stroke and type two diabetes are cutting their life short by decades, a 50 year study has shown.
It is estimated that around 80 per cent of cases could be prevented by keeping weight under control, exercising more, eating a healthy diet, and not smoking or drinking too much.
For a man in his 40s, suffering from all three conditions reduces life by 23 years. It means that a 40-year-old’s life expectancy would drop from 78 to just 55. Likewise someone in their 60s could lose 15 years, meaning a 60-year-old man might have just three years of life left.
One of our most important assets is our health. If we don’t feel well, we can’t do well. How can you expect to get the absolute most out of life if your energy levels are below average, carrying around excess fat, and feeling like complete crap? You can’t! Looking good is just a benefit. It is so much deeper than simply reaping the exterior rewards. The true benefit is what happens within us when we give our bodies the attention they need.
11 Ways to invest in your health:
- Invest in good food: Food is fuel for your body. It has a direct impact on how you feel as well as on your overall health. Fast food isn’t necessarily bad, but in many cases, it’s highly processed and contains large amounts of carbohydrates, added sugar, unhealthy fats, and salt (sodium).In today’s time, list of bad foods is longer than good foods. Bad food is invented every day, and quietly keep adding to the menus in restaurants and keep enticing us with flashy commercials, while we sit and relax in our living rooms.Bad food is everywhere and it is almost impossible to ignore it unless we are highly disciplined. Bad foods come with a huge advantage. Fast food industry knows it well exploit it to the fullest. Advantage: Tastes good and cheap.Well, be Confident. Don’t believe the hype. Quitting junk food is easy. Your body doesn’t need it. If it could choose, it’d go for clean foods. If you’re giving your body what it needs, you’ll be ok. If not: it’s in your head. Act. Don’t sit there waiting. If you want to change your eating habits do something about it. Go to the grocery store. Go organic. Cook your food. Prepare meals for work. Quit smoking and alcohol abuse. Your health depends on what you eat. Invest in good organic food. Eat 7 colors of different fruits and veggies everyday.
- Get yourself tested: Get all your tests done. Cholesterol, Sugar levels, vitamin D, vitamin B12, protein etc. Find out what is insufficient and deficient in your body and build a custom plan for what your body needs.
- Get educated: Once you know where your health stands only then you can start investing in your health. So invest time in educating your self about various foods and exercise programs that can help your body. Know vitamins and minerals you need. Take it from natural sources and not synthetic. Educate your self about various foods having vitamins and minerals you need.
- Sleep Right: Simply put, people sleep best when they sleep and rise at around the same times, whereas those with more irregular sleeping patterns can end up suffering from insomnia and other problems along those lines. Keep your room dark and cool and learn how your body can sleep best. Remember, if we live 75 years, we sleep 25 years. Magic happens when we sleep right. Body builds new cells and cures itself. Let the natural magic happen to your every night and let your body cure you.
- Invest in fitness: Physical inactivity has been consistently associated with an increased risk of early death, as well as being associated with a greater risk of diseases such as heart disease and cancer. For most healthy adults, the Department of Health and Human Services recommends these exercise guidelines:
Aerobic activity. Get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a week, or a combination of moderate and vigorous activity. The guidelines suggest that you spread out this exercise during the course of a week.
Strength training. Do strength training exercises for all major muscle groups at least two times a week. Aim to do a single set of each exercise, using a weight or resistance level heavy enough to tire your muscles after about 12 to 15 repetitions.
Sitting is new smoking. Don’t just keep sitting, even if your job is such like. Our bodies are made to move. Keep moving.
6. Limit chemicals use and chemical abuse
- Plastic and other Chemicals
- The low-fat food movement and other processed, sugar-filled foods
- Toxic mold
- The overuse of pills
- GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms)
- EMFs (Electric and Magnetic fields) and Cell Phones
Our body is not a chemistry lab. Protect it from chemical filled foods and chemical abuse. Get help if you need. There is plenty available, we just have to ask for it.
