Oftentimes in our culture, and by that I mean the culture in North America, our medicine is mostly reactive. That is, most of the ideas about medicine and getting healthy are only discussed under the assumption that you are already sick or that something is already wrong. Not often do people think of medicine and health as proactive. But they should!
But really, being proactive about your health and beauty is what makes you stay young and healthy and live a happy life. And proactive care is certainly what the Face Fitness Center will always encourage.
Being healthy and fit is one of the best insurance policies that you could possibly have to ensure you spend more time enjoying your life and less time dealing with medical problems. Though some people make excuses, like these excuses for not being physically active, being fit keeps you out of the doctors office for ailments such as colds and flu. Also, as your body stays active, you lessen the likelihood of getting arthritis, having heart and cardiovascular problems and cancer.
Maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle will help to keep your life and health insurance premiums low. Just see for yourself – get a cheap insurance quote and look at the difference if you change your weight by about twenty pounds. This would likely make you obese if you are currently at a good weight and make a big difference in your quote.
If you are currently overweight, get started on a healthy eating plan and start some exercise. Even a small amount during part of your day will do wonders. Getting healthy and getting your weight down to your goal weight will help you when you request a cheap insurance quote. You’ll see that the premiums are lower and that, since you are healthier, you’ll spend less in health care since you probably won’t have to visit the doctor as often.
Having a healthy weight and lifestyle also is important when buying individual health insurance plans. Why do you need it? Most people, especially women, are under-insured and could leave their families in a bind should they pass away unexpectedly.
– Stay at home moms need it just as much as working moms. A $500,000 policy is a good choice for most.
– Single women should have some to take care of end of life issues.
– Single moms need it since they’ll leave behind kids who may have no other means of support.
– Anyone who is the primary earner in the home should have at least 10 times their annual income as the payout.
Remember that no one cares about your health as much as you do. If you can’t stand the thought of giving up candy bars and hours in front of the television in exchange for grilled chicken and power walks, at least consider how much money you can save on your policies by getting fit. Join a community of people who want to help and support you and you’ll be on your way to smaller jeans in no time.
