Now there are many ways that someone can help in assuring that their retirement years coming up soon will be golden, because I am more interested in the Health aspect of those years which also bleeds into your overall quality of life and financial resources to work with as well.
You see, your health is tied in directly to your finances as well right? We all heard of the adage ” health is wealth” you can have all the money in the world but if you have lived a destructive lifestyle then, that money that you worked so hard to accumulate, will be passed on the people like me in the medical community.
Most doctors and hospitals are more then happy to take your money, after all they have to make a living too.
One of the ways you can be proactive in your overall health care in the 21st century is to become informed and active in a committed Exercise Program, combined with a solid nutritional program as you age.
You see, our bodies are like your automobile that gets older with accumulated miles on it, it needs preventive maintenance on it to run smoothly and to help keep the breakdowns to a minimum, so does your body.
Your health and life in general, does not care what you used to do for exercise or, how you lived or, who you knew, when you were younger, it cares about today, what are you doing today?
You should have a plan to get up first thing in the morning and spend time on your exercise program followed by a hearty ,nutritious breakfast to get your mind and body prepared for the day.
I recommend early in the morning because as the day goes on in our busy day to day lives, putting your exercise program off until later in the day means the chances skyrocket that you will not get it done.
Put the time in today to get working on your physical exercise program and, start planning your meals in advance to assure you are eating properly and not eating on a binge program because you do not have anything prepared at home.
Poor meal planning alone counts for the increase in obesity and unhealthy amounts of body fat that degrade your health in general.
Preparation in life is what separates the successful from the unsuccessful.
Either you take the time today to work on both your mental and physical health or, plan on having someone else do it for you later in life at a cost that will leave you dependent on someone else to care for you and, possibly financially strapped to boot!
Sure, we cannot tell what will take place in the future due to other variables however, you can play a major role in your own destiny when it comes to your health and finances by taking a good long hard look where you are at now and where you want to be tomorrow.
Put your hands around your future today by being aggressive in planning your own healthcare through exercise and quality nutritional practices.
