Are you scared of spending money on yourself? We often talk ourselves out of investing in our health and wellbeing because we tell ourselves we don’t have the money. But a lot of the time it’s not that, it’s actually because we are scared of investing in ourselves, we don’t think we are worth it.
We don’t make our health a priority.
We tell ourselves we don’t have the money, and yet we buy things that give us instant highs like shopping online for clothes that we can’t even wear out at the moment, or we save the money in our bank accounts, we like knowing that it’s there just in case.
We sit there, day to day, feeling like utter crap, but it’s ok, because at least we have some money in the bank.
There’s something not quite right there. When we are self employed or in a high up position in the company we work for we must make our health a priority because if you don’t you can crash and burn.
How are you going to work or run your business if this happens?
How are you going to make money if this happens?
Wouldn’t you rather be your healthiest self so that you can thrive in your work and in your life?
Instead of thinking about “spending” money on yourself, I like to think of it instead as “investing” or “circulating” money and notice how your feelings about it start to change. Everyone’s budget will be different, it can be a small amount of money you use to invest in yourself or a large amount of money, it doesn’t really matter, what matters is that you do it – for you!
If you think the pursuit of good health is expensive and time consuming, try illness.Lee Swanson
I saw this quote originally shared on The Merry Mill’s Instagram account and I had to share it. They also added an Irish saying:
Is fearr an tsláinte ná na táinte.
Which translates as your health is better than your wealth.
