Getting Financially and Physically Healthy

Creating a Healthier Lifestyle to help with your wealth

As 2023 kicks into gear, we are all hoping our new year resolutions are still going strong. One of the most common resolutions is to maintain a healthier lifestyle. Now, here is something you may not have thought of: Healthy living does not just help your body and mind, it also plays a big part in boosting your savings accounts. Let us explain.

What is considered healthy food?

We know that getting into a regular exercise routine will be beneficial for your overall health, but how does this help you save? When you push yourself into healthier habits, you get rid of some of your bad habits.  Let’s say you’re a smoker and you’re planning on quitting. We all know that is going to benefit you in terms of health, but if you currently smoke a pack of cigarettes a day, this will save you thousands of dollars a year by “putting out” this habit!

A common trend for a lot of people to consider in their pursuit of a healthier lifestyle is to start exercising in the form of cycling. This is another great two-way benefit. With the rising price of gasoline and car insurance, cycling can be a great way to get from point A to B and not hurt the budget. If on average you’re filling your car up once a week at around $40/tank, that could be over $2000 of savings throughout the year! CHA-CHING!

Exercising, coffee and catching up on the news… We don’t recommend trying that!

Obviously, every individual will have different ideas and plans for healthier habits, but we want to help keep the momentum going! Let’s just make this clear – commitment is the key. If you want to save your money by quitting smoking, eliminating take-out food from your diet, or finding alternatives to using your car, you must make sure you are ‘all in’ for the challenge. You will be amazed with your overall health and savings.
