Your body is like a bank account.
Have you heard this analogy before?
If not, then it could change the way you look at your health.
The analogy compares your body to a balance sheet.
If you keep making withdrawals out of your bank account, what happens?
Eventually, you'll hit zero and go into the red.
What happens when your balance sheet is in the red?
Red means you have no money. It's a negative balance. You are overdrawn.
How does this relate to the body?
In the body, red is the point when you start to experience pain or injury. You are out of balance. You are overdrawn.
Working 10 hours per day, training for a marathon, taking care or your kids, playing sports, and doing projects around the house are examples of making withdrawals from your body.
If you keep making withdrawals without making deposits, you'll go broke and get injured.
What are you doing to make DEPOSITS into your bank account?
Morning stretch routines, daily mobility exercises, proper warm-ups, and educating yourself with injury prevention exercises are all examples of deposits.
The more deposits you make, the more money you have saved up in your account.
Build a savings account and invest in the health of your body instead of living pay check to pay check.
The more you invest in your health, the more you get in return.
Remember your health is your wealth.
To your health,
