Healthy Life-style Means Good Health and Lower Health Insurance Rates
I’ve always tried following a healthy life-style, but on January 1, 1998, I made a serious resolution to really focus on my health for that year. What did I do? I lost some weight, became consistent in my exercise program, started taking some anti-oxidants, got a complete medical and dental check-up, started learning a bit about naturopathic medicine and organically grown foods, applied for a better health insurance policy, and took out Long Term Care insurance.
Our most valuable asset is our health, and we are the real experts on our body. There are many things we can do to improve this “temple” that we live in. We all know that smoking, drugs, drinking, and over-eating are detrimental to good health. Why not give ourselves a Christmas gift every day by dealing with those problems?
On the positive side we know that exercise is a plus. Many books and articles tell us that taking anti-oxidants is helpful. Since childhood we have had the importance of a balanced diet drilled into our heads. What about alternative medicine? Dr. Andrew Weil of the University of Arizona publishes a regular bulletin called “Self-Healing.” Interested in how to subscribe? Write me. Then there is the matter of natural foods grown organically. In many places our fruits and vegetables are permeated with insecticides, etc. I know that in Indonesia, where I worked for over 30 years, chemicals that were banned in the USA were readily available for all farmers to use.
Good health insurance is certainly important to have, but good health is even more important. Start today getting your body healthy by focusing on healthy living for the rest of your life.
