“Man sacrifices his health to make money, then sacrifices his money to recuperate his health.” - Dalai Lama
You’ve spent decades adding to your 401k. Your company is matching it and it’s growing like a weed! You watch it, buy stocks, gain more equity in your company and home, move money around to yield higher returns…
You’re on track to retire at 65 and buy that winter home in Palm Springs!
Life. Is. Good. For now…
You’re in your 60’s now and ready for retirement, to work on the house, travel the world, and really enjoy the rest of your amazing life!
But wait…you forgot one very important factor - your body.
Energy levels are depleted, blood pressure and sugar are high, sarcopenia (loss of muscle) is settling in real nice-like, you broke your ankle trying to jog up the stairs (since bone density and protective muscle/balance are abscent) and you’re set back at least 12 weeks from physical activity. Now you’re free falling into older age.
You feel 85.
You decide now is probably a good time to get your diet together and start to try and exercise more. But it’s really hard because you haven’t done it in so long.
Now here you are, tired, weak, overweight, easily injured, disease prone, and all in what should be the prime of your life.
Luckily you’ve got all that money saved up that you’re going to need in order to get the care you could have otherwise avoided.
“Time is one of our most precious assets, and since our bodies are what dictate the quality of our time, our bodies become our MOST important asset.” - Zach Taylor
If you think it’s important to add to your financial bank, know that your health bank is infinitely more valuable.
I’m saving in both! I want to be wealthy AND healthy!
So…what are you waiting for?
