Investment Towards Old Age

This Sparked Me!

I unfortunately have seen both of my parents in the hospital more than once. It amazes me the money they spend on medical bills per month after a couple of decades of not taking better care of themselves. Thus, I believe that the time and effort I spend now is a way to save tons of money when I am older.

    It is so true. Preventive maintenance is what counts, and you can start at any age. It is never too late.

    You are so right. Currently we have so much more knowledge available. We don't have to be uninformed. I remember seeing a vintage magazine with a print ad of a doctor smoking a cigarette and recommending that brand because it was smooth!!! What a difference a generation makes. All choices we make healthy or unhealthy impact our lives. I try to make healthy choices these days. We are investing in a healthier future. emoticon Nancy in HOT South Carolina

    That is so true! Being overweight can lead to lots of issues later in life. Getting on top of it now will help avoid issues such as bad knees, gout, high blood pressure, etc.
