Your Health is an Investment, Not a Cost

The Aultman Working on Wellness team provides health screenings and education at no cost to lead our community to improved health. This is a great example of a group in our community helping you to invest in your health. They provide health education and resources as well as referrals, as needed.

The analogy of health investment as a financial investment is a good one. If you want to be financially healthy and secure, you have to continuously work towards this goal. The same is true for your health. Pay yourself first and continue to “invest” in your health in good times and in bad

The World Health Organization defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely absence of disease. To earn this return, you need to consistently invest in healthy lifestyle habits including a good diet, exercise, adequate sleep and stress reduction.

Invest in your health today to fight and prevent future diseases. This may pay further dividends including reduced overall health care cost, increased happiness, more productivity at work, and being more available for your family and for leisure activities.

People that have suffered severe illness, say that health is like money and that they never have an idea of its true value until they’ve lost it.

I came across a read by Jim Rohn. He said “Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.“ Makes a lot of sense!

Stay well!
