#132 Health is Wealth

If health is truly every individual’s wealth, what can we do to improve it? There is a myriad of information out there on improving health, vitality, and longevity. Educating yourself on cultivating well-being can be, ironically, a stressful experience, but taking the initiative to gather knowledge is a good step towards being an active participant in your health. And it doesn’t have to be an overwhelming journey—there are simple but impactful ideas to help you enhance your health span.

In this episode, I discuss health being your wealth and outline key ideas to help, support, and improve your health span and enable you to live with vitality. I explain how having a positive view of aging impacts vitality and longevity. I share my G.L.A.D. and W.W.W. exercises to help build your emotional bank account. I also highlight how our interpersonal relationships impact our health, discuss how our daily lifestyles and habits determine our well-being, and underscore the power of gratitude on improving our vitality.
