Your Money and Your Health
Think Money and Health are not related? Think again. Some people may manage their money very well and then become sick and need the extra money to pay for treatment. On the other hand, some people manage their health so well that they live for many years and need a large nest egg built up that will last.
According to Barbara O’Neill , author of Small Steps to Health and Wealth and Extension Specialist with Rutgers Cooperative Extension, there are many connections between money and health including the ways we manage it: Think about incorporating some of these suggestions into how you manage your money and your health:
$ Keep track of what you spend and what you eat.
$ Make a commitment to change.
$ Stop and think about why you may be buying something on impulse or why you many be eating unhealthy foods.
$ Make S.M.A.R.T. Goals to manage both your money and your health.
$ Be realistic about what you can actually achieve.
$ Just Say “NO” to the supersize portions when eating out.;
$ Avoid opening a new charge accounts that give percentages off.
