Invest in Your Health

If you had all the money in the world and do not have health, you would spend most of all that money to be healthy again. Life's too short to be just about making money. Often, we get caught up in the rat race and forget to take care of ourselves. Most diseases are caused by bad diet and inactivity. That means we can prevent diseases by eating a balanced diet and exercising.

1. Eat a healthy breakfast of organic whole grain cereal with kefir or yogurt. Add some sliced bananas or strawberries. (3 is the minimum # of food groups you should eat to boost your brain health.)

2. Walking as often as possible. Invest in a pedometer, clip it to your sneakers, then walk for at least 30 minutes a day if you don't like going to the gym or doing other exercises. I've walked more than 5,000 steps in one day.

It's so true - if we don't invest in our health now, we will definitely pay later. Good tips!
