Healthy Savings

There’s a lot of talk about real estate, stocks/bonds and index funds, IRAs and 401(k)s and other savings vehicles, but there’s one type of investment that’s garnering a lot of new attention: Investing in your health.

While no one is going to pay you for running a mile or eating a salad, in the long run, investing in your health can have a significant financial upside, not to mention all the lifestyle benefits. So let’s talk in dollars and cents. The healthier you are, the less of an insurance risk you are, which translates into lower premiums on health and life insurance. What’s more, a healthy body is scientifically shown to go hand-in-hand with a healthy brain and increased performance at work. You’ll take fewer sick days, be able to use your personal days for fun stuff and you’ll also have more energy, which means you can accomplish more while you’re on the clock. It also prepares you to pursue the best opportunities, like actively going after a promotion, seeking a more advanced degree, or finding a better job at a different company. So go ahead, put your running shoes on and sprint toward a brighter future.
