We are all moving in one of two directions when it comes to our health. One way is towards health and the other is towards sickness. When we take care of our bodies by making sure our spine is aligned and the nervous system is working well, it allows our body to work towards health. Eating well. Exercising. Resting. All point us toward health. Each decision that we make that contributes to our well-being is like a deposit into a savings account. It builds up over time.
Now imagine the opposite. We are stationary. We don’t eat good, nutritious foods. We don’t get enough sleep. Our spine is misaligned and our nervous system is failing. This is the way towards sickness. We are withdrawing money, we are using credit, and now we are in debt. These decisions have a cost and burden.
Each day we make both good and bad decisions for our health. The net at the end of the day will either leave us with a surplus or more in debt.
The trouble is when an emergency happens. An accident. A virus. Or some other form of catastrophe.
Having your car breakdown is a major bummer. If you have cash reserves it stings, but you can move on. But if you are already in major debt, a car breakdown can be a financial disaster.
This is also true with our bodies and our health. We want to save up so we can be abundantly healthy, but also because if something bad happens we can be prepared. This analogy is especially poignant because most bankruptcies in our country are from health care costs and bills.
The key is to make sure you are not in health debt and heading towards sickness. Make a few deposits today.
Yours in good health,
