In the midst of American Heart Month, it is important that we take control of our health and determine ways in which we can improve ourselves on a daily basis. Many individuals have no idea how their health can impact their financial well-being. We want to help you live life to the fullest while incorporating healthy living habits, which is why we have gathered a list of ways your health can impact your financial well-being:
- Lack of sleep often has a direct impact on your finances. Those who do not receive enough sleep each night are allowing their decision making skills to suffer, which can directly impact finances. You should sleep at least 6 hours a night, preferably eight or nine hours.
- Eating poorly has a direct impact on your finances. Indulgers are more likely to have unhealthy BMIs, body fat, and levels of obesity. If you regularly dine out, you are not only affecting your bank account, but you are also hindering your overall health. Those who have good eating habits typically have good financial habits as well.
- Skipping exercise will not only affect you physically, but it can also have drastic mental effects as well, which have a direct impact on your finances. Regular exercise has the ability to boost brain functions, meaning you will be able to manage your finances better.
- If you are stressed, there is no way you can be managing your finances in the most effective way possible. Reducing your stress will not only help you financially, but your overall well-being will be affected by doing so.
