There's no better investment one can make than in one's health.
Studies have demonstrated that walking for 30 minutes 'most day's' in a week leads to a $2,500 savings in medical costs PER YEAR.
Investing $50 into a pair of good walking shoes yields a 4,900% Return on Investment (ROI). There's no other investment in the world that's going to have that good of a ROI!
Walking helps prevent a myriad of chronic illnesses, such as diabetes. Imagine saving $2,500 by simply walking for 30 minutes PLUS reducing your medical costs that you do incur by another 46 to 135%. That's how much extra medical care is going to cost you when you have Obesity Class I and Class II, respectively!!
Start today. You can't afford to wait until tomorrow.
You (literally) may not be able to afford to put off focusing on your health another day. Start simple but stay consistent. Make the commitment to walk for 30 minutes today. No excuses.
It might just save your life (and a few thousand dollars).
Need more reason to stay active than saving $$$$$??
Take a look at the image below:
What you're looking at is an MRI of the thighs of 3 different people.
The first image is of a 40-year-old triathlete. The dark gray substance is muscle. The bright white substance on the outside is adipose (fat). The bright white in the center of the image is the femur bone.
Now take a look at the middle picture. That's the same image but of 74-year-old male who is sedentary. Sedentary can be defined as less than 5,000 steps per day. As you can see in this image, the muscle looks sickly. It has wasted to nearly non-existent and the adipose tissue is of MUCH greater volume. Also take note of how small the femur bone is. Do you think this individual might be at greater risk of falling (due to weakness of the muscles) and fracturing his hip (due to the frailty of the bone)??
Now, take a look at the third image. It's nearly impossible to tell the difference between image 1 and 3. Image 3 is of a 70-year-old triathlete! This person is only 4 years younger than the sedentary individual yet their image is nearly indistinguishable from the 40-year-old's!!!!
