It's a new year and it's time to get back into the motion of things. Every year, millions of people vow to work out, find solutions to lose weight and commit to staying healthy. But, did you ever wonder how you could do all of this without being financially unhealthy?
Countless of times when I saw my husband not go to the gym, all I could see was that $39.99 monthly fee go out the window. I know plenty of people who cancelled their gym memberships mid-year because they weren't taking advantage of the facilities that they were fully paying for.
If you want to know how you can stay healthy and fit and keep your bank account equally healthy and fit, our DealPros have some really great tips to share with you!
By now your kids are probably geared up for school, and everyone is
in the process of getting used to a new schedule (hopefully). The
last thing you need is to have your child wake up one morning with
a high fever or, even worse, that dreaded call from the school
nurse telling you to pick up your ill child ASAP.
Come on! School just started!
Still, many parents find themselves dealing with a sick child early
into the school year.
Fall is upon us and with it pumpkin pie, fall festivals, and a change in the weather that usually has my allergies acting up. While there are times when stuff just happens and we get sick no matter what we try, there are a couple of things I do at home to help prevent sickness and keep my immunity up.
1. Eat and drink plenty of Vitamin C. This means plenty of fruits and vegetables as well as juices. I do a lot of my own juicing at home too after making a stop at my local Natural Grocery Store. Vitamin C is great for immunity boosting and warding off colds.
2. Keep grapefruit seed extract spray on hand. Just a few squirts in my nose, and I'm good as new. Several times when I was coming down with something, I ended up perfectly fine after using this.
It's freebie time! I don't know about anyone else, but I love
going to my mailbox to see what freebies are there. Lately I've
been receiving a lot of K-Cup coffee offers I signed up for
about 6 weeks ago. Not just one K-Cup
either, they're four packs! Have you scored any of
the freebies offered in the Weekly Round-Up?
In a recent article by the Los Angeles Times, a survey showed that healthcare costs are rising while benefits are shrinking. Health premiums have risen 153.5% since 2002 which is five times the inflation rate in California. And on top of that, employers offering health insurance has dropped to 63% from 73%. In fact, 46.3 million Americans under the age of 65 do NOT have health insurance. These are scary statistics, but there are ways you can go about managing your health care without health insurance.
