When we are healthy, we do not think so much about what could happen if we keep having bad habits. However, all that fast-food and sugary drinks will make you overweight or be the main cause for health issues, such as heart attacks. If you want to save thousands of dollars instead of paying medical bills, you should start to exercise more.
According to CFC, people are spending more than 6 million dollars due to obesity issues, in the United States, every year. If you want to be healthy and not contribute to the income of some pills manufacturers, you should exercise for half an hour, five days a week. According to the researchers, this would help you spend 2 500 dollars less than those who do not exercise. It seems that even people who had heart issues can save 400 dollars if they do something about their health. Khurram Nasir, the author of the study, said that even those who had heart disease and are doing regular exercise activities have a lower risk of being in a hospital.
If you want to feel better and you do not want to spend money on pills, the best way is to have physical activity. This way we will prevent cardio diseases such as artery disease, heart attacks or obesity. Researchers used data from 23 000 people and took into consideration factors such as economic status, health insurance or the age of the patient.
If you want to exercise but you do not like going to the gym, there is no problem. Many people enjoy doing physical activity in the park, while others try this at home. Exercise has its benefits and it is more than just saving money. You will look good and this will make you a more confident person. Think of what you could do with all the money you are saving: buy new clothes, go to see your favourite artist or travel to another country.
Write on a paper how many pills you bought in the past year and how much money you lost. Of course, there are times when medication is needed. However, there are many diseases we could prevent by doing physical activity. The best way to save thousand of dollars every year is to exercise and take care of your body.
