Physical and Financial Health

A healthy life, helps for a healthy wallet.
Eating well can boost your overall health and help you feel your best. When you feel your best, it is reflected in all aspects of your life, and yes that includes your financial health.

Building a healthy lifestyle into your financial plan is important for everyone, whether you are retired or still working. We would like to highlight the importance of a healthy lifestyle and it's overall impact on your financial health.

By working to maintain a healthy lifestyle it can help reduce the possibility of needing to reach into your own pocket to cover medical expenses that are not covered by a benefits plan. Extending a healthy lifestyle into the workplace, and into your home, can help boost your overall performance. Good nutrition and a healthy active lifestyle, can make you feel more energized, which can help relieve stress and improve cognitive functions. In feeling more alert and energized, you are also more likely to make better financial decisions.

To help you get started on boosting your overall health, our in-house nutrition guru Taylor Gray suggests taking these steps towards building a healthier lifestyle. 
  1. Pledge to make a small, nourishing change and stick with it, one meal at a time.
  2. Make your goals S.M.A.R.T.
  3. Post your healthy eating goals in the kitchen and at your desk to keep healthy eating top of mind.
  4. Monitor your progress with a food diary or an app like eaTracker so you can stay on track.
  5. Share your goals. Enlist your family and friends to support, not sabotage, your new habits.
