No matter the time of year, it’s never a bad time to set new goals and work toward a better you. Two of the areas that most of us like to improve are finances and health.
This may come as a surprise to many people, but there is a strong correlation between being “financially fit” and being “physically fit” .
So, if you are considering setting health/ fitness goals it might be wise to start with your getting your finances in order. Recent surveys conducted by TD Bank have highlighted how one affects the other.
TD Bank found that 81% of respondents stated that their “other goals” were easily met when their finances are in order.
When you start to think about these results, you can see how they make sense. Firstly, it’s very distracting when your finances aren’t in order. When you are worried about debt and bills and what’s going to happen with your money, it’s hard to work on other areas of your life, and not just your physical well-being.
In most cases today, fitness comes at a price. It is a massively lucrative industry. Therefore, having extra cash to invest on your fitness brings you that much closer to attaining your ideal physique. There is a well known saying “you get what you pay for”, and this most certainly applies in this instance.
