Why Healthy Habits Can Pad Your Pockets
You have seen this principle displayed time and time again in your life- everything is connected. How often, though, do you think about how that plays into your own life? Have you considered, for example, how your health of your body might be affecting the health of your bank account? Here are a few ways the two are connected.
- Sleep: Being under-slept can impact you in the same way a few glasses of wine does, studies show. This deprivation can lead to impulse buys, from picking up the shirt you do not need at the store to not recognizing possible discounts on bigger-ticket items.
- Nutrition: You likely already know that eating out regularly is not the best decision for your body, but did you know it could negatively affect your wallet too? Statistics reveal that people spend half as much money eating at home as they do at restaurants.
- Stress: In the same way sleep can cause you to impulsively buy items you do not need, stress can lead to thoughtless shopping. In fact, we have a common moniker for this- “retail therapy.” Getting a grip on your stress can also help you get a grip on your spending.
- Exercise: Getting active each day feeds energy into your brain. Do not let your less sedentary co-workers advance past you at work; get the activity you need to sharpen your brain.
