Does Your Health Impact Your Wealth?

We’ve all heard someone complain that working out just isn’t fun. This, of course, always comes as justification for why they’re not getting in their daily exercise.

With countless fun and interesting ways to get in shape out there, this excuse falls flat every time. That’s not really why they aren’t exercising, and we all know it.

Dozens of reasons exist making a solid case for why everyone should work out regularly and eat less junk, fun or not. Smarter health decisions in our daily lives contribute to our well-being.

Everyone knows this, but not everyone takes the steps to make those smarter decisions.

Whatever the real reason so many people refuse to live healthier, here’s a brand new reason to make those small changes in your daily life and start to live a healthier lifestyle.

Your health, in significant and surprising ways, impacts your wealth. Often to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars per year.

Smoking alone will result in the expense of the cigarettes themselves, sure, but will also increase medical costs, life insurance rates, and can even hit you with increased homeowner’s insurance fees.

All of that comes even if you don’t develop lung cancer or something equally devastating to both your health and medical expenses.

Eating out even occasionally, combined with lack of exercise, not only costs more for the food itself, but has become a huge contributor to obesity.

Obesity is responsible for a whole range of medical problems, and will also impact medical and insurance costs to potentially thousands of dollars per year.

However, a few small changes in lifestyle can improve both your health, and save a huge amount of money annually as your health improves.

If you take those saved dollars and turn them toward smart financial decisions, you can lose weight and debt all at the same time.

Take a look at this infographic and see how much your lifestyle might secretly cost you.
