I have always believed that a healthy family has more chances of having a better quality of life than a not-so-healthy family.
- a healthy family do not get sick often and are not prone to having absences at work and from school
- a healthy family that do not regularly get sick save up on hospital bills, medications and loss of income
- a healthy family can engage in activities that will even make them stronger and healthier
Perhaps you have heard of the saying: “An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure”. Now why would you want to “waste” your money on medication and doctor’s fees when you can use less than that amount you have to shell out in getting healthier choices, having a better lifestyle and getting the right nutrition from the right kinds of food that will not give you the chance to make you obese?
Would you rather spend your hard-earned money on medicating your physical symptoms (which by the way, if you are sick, you won’t be able to do the work you are supposed to do) or would you rather spend your hard-earned money with things that will make you healthier?
The choice is yours.
