“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” This is just one of the sayings we grew up with. We’ve got dozens of these that put emphasis on health. It only goes to show that health is one of our major priorities.
The following are health maxims that we try to live by: eat a balanced meal, have a good night’s sleep, and drink 8 glasses of water a day. This is the ideal scenario, but let’s be honest – there are times that we just crave for junk food, pizza, and other fast food meals. Kids nowadays, instead of playing outside are glued to their video games. This is the reason why we should take extra care of our health.
You know what they always say, “Health is Wealth”. Having a lot of money is useless if you are not in good shape. How can we enjoy what life has to offer if we are sick or lacking energy?
But aside from the fact that Health is Wealth, in today’s society, “Wealth is Health” is also equally true.
Wealth is Health too!
No matter how much we take care of ourselves, by the time we reach the age of 50, there will be some changes in our body. I’m not trying to be negative here, but it is during this time when high cholesterol, diabetes, and other diseases begin to be felt.
Now, is health care cheap or expensive in the Philippines? It is expensive, right?
Annual check up, gym membership, supplements, and medicines all cost us money. And with the technology and changes in the health care industry, the more modern something is, the more expensive the treatment will be.
How can we afford this if we do not have enough money?
When you book a room in a hospital, you’ll see options such as suite or a deluxe room. These terms used to be for high-end hotels – now, for hospitals too!
Aside from the hospital stay, there are other charges like lab tests, medications, and the doctors’ fees. After the hospital confinement, you also have to purchase medicines for maintenance.
Every item costs money. Indeed, Wealth is Health.
There will come a time when one has to retire and won’t be able to work anymore. And if we do not have enough money to prepare for these things, how can we be sure of a good and healthy life as we grow older?
Ask yourself this, “When I retire, who is going to pay the medical bills?” If you can’t find the answer, now is the time to prepare!
Aside from taking care of our health today, another way to ensure good health in the future is having an income for medical expenses in the future.
The perfect balance between “Health is Wealth” and “Wealth is Health” is our prescription for you.
Start living healthy today and learn how to save and invest for your future!
