Fitness, the Most Important Investment of Your Life

By: Scott Johns

When most people think of investing they think of stocks or realestate. Most people do not think about their health when they hear these words. However, what if I were to tell you that there is not more important investment you could ever focus on. That might make you feel a bit uncomfortable if you have been lacking in this area or it will justify you in you great health at this moment in time. The fact is your health is more important than money, stocks, cars or anything at all. How can you enjoy these things if you are dead right?

On average a person spends about $300 a month for health insurance unless they get it free through work. Even then it is most likely a PPO and you will have to pay some kind money including deductable. Most of us are willing to fork out the money no matter how painful it may be, for health insurance out of necessity. Yet many of us are no willing to pay $30 a month for a gym membership which would keep us out of the hospital for the better part of the year. You see we have our priorities backwards. Concentrating on you physical well being would significantly cut healthcare costs.

We are not just talking about health here. If you want to look healthy and vibrant then you need to work out daily and eat right. If you want to receive nonstop compliments then you need to live a life caring for your precious body. We are not talking about anything extreme here. Forget all those extreme diets and impossible boot camp work out plans you cannot maintain with daily consistency. We are talking about moderation. Do some exercises, eat some good food, and make you and your body happy. Continue to eat carbs and meats but do so in moderation. Its easier and healthier this way. You see, if you cannot make it a lifestyle then you should not be doing it.

You emotions and overall sense of well being is affected by your level of fitness. Your ability to focus, concentrate, and perform all intellectual tasks is also effected by your health. Why not make this a priority first? You wish to succeed in business, and then exercise a little every day. You want to be more attractive? A healthy smiling person is the most attractive of all. You want to feel more inner peace? Hit the gym and eat some healthy foods.

Start out with baby steps. Commit to eating just a piece of fruit every morning. Do a couple push ups every day and work your way up to more every week. You will see the progress come and you will be pleased. You see you are investing slowly and steadily in the stock of life and physical well being.
