Are financial success and health actually related?
The answer is yes.
Science has found correlations between someone’s physical fitness or health and their success in business or other areas of their life.
The simple fact is, healthier people make more money and achieve more of their goals than those who are not as healthy.
Let’s look at five reasons why that’s the case.
You release endorphins by working out first thing in the morning
When you work out first thing the morning, you release a bunch of endorphins that stay with you for hours.
This means that you head to work with a glow about you and an easier time focusing on tasks and getting things done.
You have more energy when you are eating right
You also have more energy when you are eating the right foods.
Fast food, carbohydrate overload and other habits that people fall into can actually zap your energy, make you tired and cause you to get less accomplished throughout the day.
People who get the right nutrients from their diet and who do not overeat are much more able to get things done and have the energy that is required for reaching goals.
You have more confidence to accomplish goals
You also have more confidence when it comes to the goals that you set for yourself.
That’s because you know that you can achieve difficult things already, thanks to the goals that you’ve set for yourself when it comes to health and fitness.
You are respected more by your peers
You also get more respect from people when you are fit and healthy.
Unfortunately, that’s just a fact of life.
People that are fit and obviously healthy get jobs more often than people who are not, they get higher salaries, they make more friends and of course, they have an easier time with romantic partners.
You save money through diet and exercise
You might not have thought about it, but one of the big benefits of getting healthy is that you actually save money.
Not only do you save money on food if you stop overeating, but you also save money on things like life insurance, and getting healthy now could prevent some huge hospital bills down the road.
There is every reason to get healthy, but now you know that there are reasons that actually affect how successful you’ll be in business.
