The Importance of a Healthy Body, Mind, and Wallet.

How the focus on health & fitness, finances, and self-help will pay extreme dividends in the long run.

A Blog By Severen Henderson for Department3C

Maintaining a healthy body, mind, and bank balance are three of the most essential things in life. Without good health, you can't appreciate your wealth. And if your mental state isn't balanced, it won't matter how much money you saved. Consequently, I make sure to focus on these three areas every day.

In this blog I will explain why I focus on health & fitness, finances, and self-help. The reason isn't just for me but to leave a legacy for my kids and family. Even if you're a person who doesn't have kids or you don't have a large family, you still need to approach each day with a plan.

Health is the first priority because without it nothing else matters. A sound body leads to a sound mind which then allows you to make sound financial decisions. Self-help is important because it keeps you focused on your goals and improving yourself.

I used to not care about any of this stuff. I was young and thought I had all the time in the world. Then I realized that time is the most precious commodity

When we are young, most people don't feel that they need to focus on their health because they are at the point in their life where they feel invincible. But we all know the truth, and no one is invincible. We often see or hear news reports of a young person being injured or, unfortunately, killed at a young age.

There are a few points I'd like you, the reader, to get from this blog. But If you don't get anything else, please get this! Everyone needs to take care of their bodies, regardless of their age.

You only get one body. So why wouldn't you take care of it the best you can?

We decorate our bodies with clothes and artwork in the form of tattoos. That's the outside decoration. But what about the inside decoration of your body regarding health, fitness, and diet?

As long as there is no physical ailment or limitation that a person is born with, health and wellness in the form of diet and exercise should become part of a person's routine.

Many people think they can't afford to be healthy because organic food or going to the gym is too expensive. But being unhealthy will cost you more in the long run when you factor in medical bills and missed work days.

The benefits of a healthy body are numerous. But here are just a few:

- A healthy body leads to a clear mind.

- Reduces stress and anxiety levels.

- Improves focus and concentration.

- Gives you more energy throughout the day.

- Helps you sleep better at night.

- Reduces the risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes.

One of my favorite benefits of a healthy lifestyle is the benefit of lower life insurance costs. Life insurance is a wealth-building vehicle that leads into my next area of focus. Finances.

It is reported that 70% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. That means that they have no savings and are one emergency away from being in debt.

If you're not making much money now doesn't mean you shouldn't start saving. The sooner you start saving and investing, the better off you'll be in the long run.

There's that old saying that goes. "The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is now."

That means we are always waiting for the right time to do the right thing. Of course, you must prepare and plan, but you have to take action at some point.

I'm not telling you to quit your job and become a day trader. I am saying that you should have a plan and focus on building wealth for yourself and your family.

Some key points on finances:

- Invest in yourself by taking courses and reading books on financial literacy.

- Make a budget and stick to it! Know where every dollar is going.

- Have an emergency fund of at least three to six months of living expenses.

- Invest money wisely, whether in stocks, real estate, or mutual funds.

- Live below your means so you can save and invest.

Sure there are so many more ways to go about investing for the future and educating yourself on these topics. The point here is to start learning and applying the knowledge you gain!

A misconception is that taking care of just yourself, or that spending time in the gym to look good is vain, or selfish. That couldn't be further from the truth!

It's not selfish to want to be healthy and fit. It's not selfish to want to have a handle on your finances. In fact, I would argue that it's one of the most selfless things you can do. When you're healthy and fit, you're able to be there for your loved ones. When you have a handle on your finances, you're also able to be there for your loved ones in more ways than one.

So often, we approach our health and fitness from a purely physical standpoint. We think about how we look and feel in our clothes. And while that's important, it's not the only thing that matters. Our mental and emotional health are just as important if not more.

The last focus I have is on self-help. Self-help is a process of improving yourself mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

When people think of self-help, they often think of going to therapy or reading a book. And while those are both great ways to help improve yourself, you can do many other things for self-improvement.

Some things you can do for self-improvement are:

- Get rid of negative influences in your life, whether toxic friends, family members, or co-workers.

- Set boundaries with people. This will protect your time and energy.

- Get rid of clutter in your physical space and declutter your digital space.

- Set goals for yourself and make a plan to achieve them.

- Practice self-care, whether that's getting a massage, going for a run, or taking a relaxing bath.

- Be patient with yourself. Self-improvement is a lifelong journey, not a destination. You don't arrive at a place we'll call "Self-Improvement Valley." Then just set up a home and live there. It is a constant and ongoing process of overall wellness.

Self-improvement is so vital because it leads to a better life overall. When you focus on improving yourself, you automatically improve your relationships, career, and health. It's a domino effect that starts with you!

There you have it! I believe that a person should focus on three aspects of life that are crucial for everyone: health and fitness, sound financial management, and self-help. These are things about which I am enthusiastic, and I hope you will be too! Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
