Health is Wealth: How Prioritizing Your Health Could Influence Your Wealth
It’s 3am, you’ve been grinding your face off for the past 18 hours trying to build your business. You’re probably thinking to yourself that you are the bomb.com and that no one can outwork or out-hustle you. You go to bed, wake up at around 6am and go back to grinding all day. You’re on the move, you grab something from Starbucks to keep you going, maybe even stop somewhere for a quick bite to eat.
Grind, grind, grind.
Hustle, hustle, hustle.
All of a sudden, boom, you get sick. What’s even worse? You’ve been getting sick consistently every month for the past couple months, and you are wondering: why am I getting sick so much? I’m killing it in my business, grinding all day every day, why do I have to be getting sick? It’s slowing me down!
Answer: you put your financial health before you physical health. Aka, you played yourself.
Now don’t get me wrong, there is absolutely nothing wrong with grinding to build your business and your empire, I’m not bashing that at all. I work all the time, just as much as any other aspiring entrepreneur. However, I grind effectively and put my health before everything. You too need to learn how to grind effectively and in all different aspects of your life. First and foremost being that you need to learn how to grind in the gym and in the kitchen. Health comes FIRST.
Now, being a certified personal trainer and having been in the health & fitness space for over 6 years now, of course I’m partial to believing that your health should come first before anything. But you don’t need my advice to prove that your physical health is key to building your financial wealth; look at some of the most successful people in the world.
Some of the most incredible entrepreneurs and thought leaders in this day-in-age have something in common, what is it? Money and influence yes, but more importantly they have overwhelming energy that exudes into just about every other facet of their life. HOW ARE THEY SO ENERGETIC ALL THE TIME?! You might think that their passion is what pushes them to such great lengths. And yes, having an overwhelming amount of passion behind a certain path will take you far, but know what will keep you going down that path and supercharge your progress? You guessed it, your health!
Another thing that a lot of these top entrepreneurs and thought leaders have in common is that they are all healthy! Many of them exercise regularly and most strive to eat a healthy and balanced diet. These high performers all understand that in order to function at 100% capacity 24/7/365, they need to prime their body to be able to take on such demands and fuel it with what it needs to thrive. You want to be successful right? Model after everything they do, even outside of business!
You can get very far by replicating the tasks of those before you to get where you want to go, but without putting your health first, you’re going to come crashing down very quickly and your finances will suffer because of it. Not convinced yet? Think I’m “full of it”? Well, what if I dropped some science on you then.
According to a 2015 study done by Garau et. al., researchers found that healthier individuals were able to work longer and were more productive, thus leading them to earn more as a result of their increased productivity. Our economy thrives off the exchange of money/credit for goods/services, but money cannot be accrued without some form of productivity. Whether it be through manual labor, or selling items online through drop-shipping, a certain level of productivity is required in order to perform well and produce big numbers within your business. And in order to become extremely productive, your body needs to prepped and primed to fire on all cylinders.
Another study from 1998 done by John Strauss and Duncan Thomas suggested that not only was their a correlation between personal health and personal wealth, but also a correlation of collective societal health in relation to a society’s economic potential. So not only does “Health is Wealth” apply to just you, but to your company and country as a whole as well. So basically, by you becoming healthier, you have just strengthened the economic machine in your country… pretty cool right?
I could go on and on and list tons of studies showing the correlation between health and wealth, but I’m sure you get the point by now.
So when thinking about grinding and doing another all-nighter, or stopping at a fast food place just because it’s “convenient”, just remember what the long-term affects of repeating that behavior will yield in regards to your overall output in your business. Sure, you might feel like an absolute beast for going 24 hours straight, but I can almost guarantee that you would have gotten just as much done, if not more, had you gotten proper sleep, fueled yourself with the right foods, and gotten a good workout in.

3 Harmful Ingredients You May Not Know About
Did you know that the same box of cereal in the US has more harmful ingredients than the same cereal in the UK?
Based on a 2017 article published on the business insider, the United States has different health regulation rules from other countries when it comes to dangerous chemicals added to the food. Many of these ingredients have been banned and deemed illegal in Europe and are still allowed in the US. Some reasons why there are chemicals in our food are for longer shelf life, more flavor, and coloring to make your food more visually appealing.
The fact is that most of the packaged foods we eat whether they’re candies, cereal or tomato sauce could be detrimental to our health. But how bad can it be? Yes, the obvious reason for many is weight gain. But what we may not always be aware of is that the list of issues is longer than just that.
Symptoms of bad chemicals in your food can range anywhere between random headaches, digestive problems, hormonal issues, and even cancer. Yes, many of the foods you might be consuming can cause cancer. Before we start dissecting labels, know that if your cereal, cookies, or any other product you have in your kitchen or snacking pantry has more than 10 ingredients then it’s not worth the try. Also, watch out for hard to pronounce ingredients. When in doubt don’t eat it.
Before we go into dissecting ingredients, let’s talk about junk food.
Well, you must have heard the Pringle’s slogan “once you pop you can’t stop” and this slogan is not wrong. Junk food is addicting and this is no accident. This type of “food” is loaded with sodium, sugar, additives & preservatives.
Too much sodium leads to heart and blood pressure problems. Too much sugar leads to weight issues, inflammation, and behavioral problems.
Here are 3 top “no-no” ingredients in food labels to avoid:
- Artificial colorings: Would you ever eat Play-Doh, or chew on a Crayola? If your answer is no, then perhaps reading the words yellow #40, red #12 and so on are probably a no-no also. Know that when coloring and numbers are found in your food it translates to synthetic ingredients which can cause, skin rashes, nausea, and other unwanted side effects.
- Artificial sweeteners: Such as Splenda, Sucralose, Aspartame, Nutrasweet, Truvia, and Sweet ’n Low. Chances are that all of these are still offered at your local coffee shop or they are in those, diet sodas, and “sugar-free” cookies. Want a better sweetener option? Look for coconut sugar, maple syrup, or honey. The use of artificial sweeteners has been linked to cancer, seizures, and metabolic disorders as some people may not be able to metabolize the artificial sweeteners. In some instances, it can lead to overeating and blood sugar issues.
- Sodium Nitrate: Used in red meats to preserve color and flavor. The chemical make- up of this product causes cancer in the stomach, other effects are headaches, vomiting, nausea, and dizziness.
Now that you have this important list, take notice of how your body reacts through the day. The best way is to make a food diary. There are times in which a weird mood or allergic reaction may be related more to the food you consume than just a seasonal allergic reaction.
