What is the best investment in life? Stocks, bonds, CD, Money Market? For many the answer will always be financially related. What we should focus on rather than wealth is health.
The wonder of life is that our bodies naturally age but the beauty is that our souls continue to nurture our inner youth. The value of your life depends on how you care for your well being, physically and mentally. As they say, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” By “investing” in your lifestyle now you'll be able to ensure strong “growth” on your investment with happy and healthy golden years.
Too busy to exercise or workout? A clever saying goes something like this. “Exercise for at least 30 minutes per day. Too busy to exercise? Then exercise for at least an hour per day.” May people that say “I am busy; I don’t have time for myself.” don't realize that often times too much stress from work without leisure can be damaging in itself to your health. Take a break and enjoy life outside of your responsibilities.

This tax season, focus on investing on more than your finances. Don't become another statistic in the ever growing figures of obesity. Being fit doesn’t mean you have to go out power lifting or joining triathlons. Eat right, exercise regularly and keep a positive outlook on life. HEALTH is WEALTH.
