Preventive care is a top priority on my healthy living to-do list, but I don’t always take time for myself and my own health goals. However, this week I’ve made a huge change. I started my 14-day #CleverlyFitMoms Challenge. Basically, it’s an accountability group that supports others by encouraging them to get fit and exercise regularly. I believe that the best healthcare for myself is preventive care.
HealthPlan USA and I partnered together for the following post
Preventative Care Saves MoneyI believe there is a direct connection between our health and our wealth. Sometimes, to be healthy it can seem costly, but in the end, it could, in fact, save a person thousands of dollars. Have you ever heard someone say, “It’s too expensive to eat healthy?” Well, try eating junk food every day. You will pay the price later. For instance, one week I bought some white chocolate candy and hid it in the armrest of my car. I ate the candy every chance I got while I was alone. As a result of my poor eating habits and minimum exercise, I gained a lot of extra weight. Sometimes we can be afraid of healthcare costs so we avoid being seen by a doctor. Don’t ignore your body. Find a plan that works for you. One discount healthcare plan is HealthPlanUSA, which is a benefits program that will help reduce your out-of-pocket cost. This plan is not insurance, but if you visit one of the contracted service providers it will lessen the amount of money you have to pay for your visit.
Your Future Depends on PreventionWhile I try to eat healthy whole foods there are two health components that I need to work harder to maintain. The first is exercising consistently. In fact, the reason for me sharing the #CleverlyFitMoms challenge is to motivate myself to exercise even when I don’t want to. Secondly, I need to consume more water. Hydration is so important. According to USGS.gov “60% of the human adult body is water” Drinking water daily is now on my priority list because I want to keep my youthful energy and appearance as long as I can, which will impact my future. Setting healthy habits now will make it easier for me to maintain them in the years to come.
A Healthy Lifestyle Can Affect Your Whole MindsetThere is a quote that I like, “The mind is everything. What you think, you become.” – Budda. For those who love scripture, Proverbs 4:23 confirms this exact sentiment when it states, “Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.” It’s true, So together we have to plan to succeed, not fail. When it comes to our daily lives we have to lessen stress by changing our perspective about our actions, make goals and set short-term deadlines so we can achieve them.
