Now I can afford my coach and a few competitions each year but I still justify the expense. I’m keeping myself out of the doctor’s office and off the medications that tend to come with age in our American society, and I’m still out of counseling. Medication and doctors visits are getting frighteningly expensive. I intend to keep my medical file thin and only filled with well-person visits and the occasional illness that requires antibiotics or an injury from being active.
Can you really afford not to be active? What is the price of you feeling good, having more energy, and possibly improving your emotional outlook? Getting active, if you are not right now, will help to keep you out of the doctor’s office, you will save on co-pays or other medical expenses, and maybe eventually medication.
