Health is Wealth ( in real sense) Part 2

Hello Healthizens!

Let's continue with the previous article

Let us think of our health as our Asset and the state of disease or bad health as our Liabilities.
Whatever we do to make our health better as Insurance premiums and whatever we do not do to make our lives healthier as Bad debts!
 Moving forward if I being a mother takecare of my health – I am increasing my assets. If I keep taking steps towards my good health and wellbeing in terms of good food and exercise, I am paying my insurance premiums and when my children grow up I will be transferring those valuable assets to them. They would get a ‘Healthy and Fit Mother’ which would be a rarity 20 years from now!
Similarly if I keep ignoring good eating and exercise considering social events, gatherings or any such things more important and not finding time to exercise, then I am increasing my liabilities. And these liabilities would be in different forms – frequent or regular medications for health issues like cough cold, fever, menopausal problems, back pain, joint pain, headaches, irritability, constipation, gastric trouble, cervical, slip-disc, thyroid, diabetes, blood pressure,  cardiac issues, depression, ulcers of various types and maybe even cancer of any organ.
 Along-with the time and appreciation in the currency the expenditures on health will increase by a manifold, and hence the liabilities on the children would also increase exponentially and would become like bad debts that could never be written off! Even if you have purchased acres of land and property for them and have given them lacs of rupees in the bank accounts – Remember their biggest asset always will be Healthy and Fit Parents! And this would keep them happy, peaceful and cheerful always!
So the choice is yours .. be a smart financial planner. Try combining health with finance this year and try increasing the assets for your children and start working towards reducing liabilities, it would take time, but then “Rome was not built in a day”

Health is Wealth ( in real sense) Part 1

Hello Healthizens!

Hope your New Year started with a bang!

The year 2016 will be marked in the history as one of the most important years due to the event of Demonetisation.
 Every person  of every age group and from all economic strata had her/his own views on demonetisation, to declare the decisions good, better, best to bad, worse or worst!

 You must be wondering, why is a Diet Consultant talking about finances and not talking about her own subject i.e.: DIET.

Lets start with clearing a few misconceptions. First and foremost let us think of DIET as a more wholesome and comprehensive term in the year 2017.

The first thing to know understand and digest is - "You are on a diet if you EAT". You may be eating anything something, a few of these things a few of that things, Diet foods, Fried foods, Low calories foods, High-protein foods, High fibre foods...but whenever you eat something out of those many things, you are on a ‘Diet’.

So technically speaking you can never go On and/or Off a ‘Diet’, you are always on a 'Diet'! To all those people who say I am on 'Diet' and all those who say I am planning to start a diet, I feel a little less happy to announce that they are technically incorrect. Now that the first misconception is cleared.. lets move to why was I discussing so much of finance at the outset of the article..
