We can all agree that healthcare is expensive. What we can’t agree on is how to solve the problem. Yet, there is something you can do to be part of the solution—and that is—your self-care. Here are the five things you can do to improve your health and contribute to the American culture of health evolution, and reduce yours and our health care costs.
Health care is expensive. But the true expense is not feeling as good as you can feel and our self-imposed health decay. My wish for all of us is to be healthier and to prioritize our health (as in first). When you feel strong you act strong. And that health and strength mixed with love and kindness for yourself and others, is the recipe for well-being. This includes good health, modeled behavior for your children, positive mood, purpose, life satisfaction, and the icing on the cake (because you can have your favorites sometimes) is your health care cost savings.
