More and more over the last year I have heard the comment I just can’t afford it…. “I can afford organic food”, “I can’t afford personal training”, “I had to let my gym membership go”. People continue to complain about not having enough money to budget healthy living. Well, I see some of these same people with new clothes or daily lattes, so the question really is… can you not afford it or do you just choose not to.

We all have a choice. Everything is a choice. Our attitude determines our success not our circumstance and our state of health is no different. We can choose to eat candy bars and sodas for lunch or not. We can determine what our money is spent on too. Maybe we think we can’t afford quality fruits and veggies but somehow we still get a pedicure. It’s about priorities. If your priority is to feel good and function effectively far into your future, taking less sick days and decreasing your chances of injury and illness then clean eating and exercising should matter to you. However, our society tends to view things like personal training as a luxury when in fact taking care of your physical state falls under the preventative medicine category. We socialize more around non healthy food and drink options rather than community based ideas like sharing time with friends and family in a natural setting, maybe even hiking for example.

Enjoying optimum health is priceless. Creating better health for yourself through the advice you can gain by seeing a naturopath, nutritionist, massage therapist, personal trainer, lifestyle consultant or well coach is worth every penny.

My advice is to ask your self… How do I feel? Could I feel better? Then look to resources around you. If you aren’t sure where to start ask a friend or family member if they have seen any helping professional in the diet and fitness industry who they might recommend. Do more research. What you spend your money on is important. Many professionals offer consultations, quite often free of charge. You have to like and respect who you work with, so check them out first. Make a commitment. If you choose to do something then see it through. Speak up, people can’t help you if they don’t understand the problem. I work with people all the time who when they are upfront about financial concerns I can help allocate their available funds over a longer period of time so to keep them consistent and continuous with their efforts.

Again none of this matters if your health takes a back seat to buying the latest accessory or electronic device. We all have priorities. I am not here to judge anyones choices. If you need weekly nail fills more than you need to loose 60 lbs then that is your choice. If being healthy, however, IS your choice and you would like help getting started on the track to feeling stronger and happier with more energy everyday then please contact me for more information on how I can help you!
