Get Rich Or Die Trying?
It will defeat the purpose of you getting rich if you can not fully enjoy your fruits of your labor due to bad health or even death. You do not have to be rich to start taking care of yourself.
Here are 4 tips to take care of yourself while you are trying to get rich.
1.) Pay attention to what you are putting into and onto your body. It has always been hard for me to put on weight, so as a youngster, when I started working out I would over eat. Over-eating eventually became a habit for me.
When I first started working out I would have breakfast at an all you can eat breakfast bar and then I would eat a whole pizza for lunch, and a whole pizza for dinner. I soon became addicted to fast food. I was broke a lot so the dollar menus appealed to me. I would eat four or five dollar burgers and a super-sized french fry almost every day.
I did not like to cook so I would buy a lot of microwaveable food. I also bought a lot of snacks. I would eat a
whole 10-pack of candy bars in a day, or I would eat a whole pack of double stuffed Oreo cookies in a day.
Now I read the nutritional labels on the back of everything I buy. Knowing is half the battle. The things we put into our body consistently over a period of time will kill us. If we put them into our bodies in large quantities they will kill us faster.
2.) Use natural supplements and vitamins- Since most of the foods we eat are stripped of nutrients due to processing, we need to supplement our bodies.
I prefer natural supplements from network marketing companies because they are usually higher quality. They
are also more expensive, but if you sign up as a distributor you will usually get a discount.
3.) Get plenty of rest- Most of my car accidents happened because I was tired. When you are trying to get rich you may feel like you have to be on the go all of the time. This is not true. You will be much more productive when you are well rested. Also take time to sit still and think.
4.) Exercise- If you are like me, you do not necessarily enjoy exercise. I can not spend long hours at the gym. I used to only lift weights when I exercised, but now I am sure to do cardiovascular exercises because it is good for the heart.
A couple of exercise tips.
a) Condense time- Instead of walking for an hour try running as fast as you can for 1-2 minutes.
b) Try to get involved with a fun sport or activity that requires a good amount of physical exercise.
If you feel that you have to either get rich or die trying, then think again. Just get rich.
