Money and health

When you think about health and money you might think that they aren’t connected. However, this is mostly not the case everything we do in our lives are connected to money if you want it or not. If you want to go to the gym you need to pay money if you want to eat you need to pay money if you want to rest or have more free time it will cost money. So the thing is not that if you have more money that it equals to better health. It means that if you have “enough money” and you decide to use your money goodwise then you might get better oppurtunities to have better health.

Stress and having less money

Stress is a reaction of our body to protect us from being eaten and to warn us for possible dangers. And the strange thing what is happening in our time is that we are having stress with work, invoices, and relationships.
It can have a negative influence on your health at the worst cases you can get depression and have a burnout. With more money, you have more choices you can decide okay I don’t like this job so i will do something else.
If you don’t have any money then the choice to stop will become almost impossible or at least difficult.

Money and your Family

What about your family? Let’s say you work 7 times a week and you don’t see your family as much can this impact your health? Increase stress and depression? It depends on the person but this can be a main reason why money is important for some people to see their family more.

Money and food

Food is the most important one!
It is very important to purchase better and healthier food to eat instead of fast food and high fat/high sugar food. This way you have more energy and no high energy with a short life span.

Money and Medicine

Medicine can cure diseases which you might get in a later stadium of your life. In America not all medicines are insured and you might get into debt. If you go into debt it might increase your stress and with more stress, your health will decrease. So one thing can influence the other.

How can stress effect your health

When stress starts interfering with your ability to live a normal life for an extended period, it becomes even more dangerous. The longer the stress lasts, the worse it is for both your body and mind. You might feel fatigued, unable to concentrate or irritable for no good reason, for example. But chronic stress causes wear and tear on your body, too.

Stress can make existing problems worse. In one study, for example, about half the participants saw improvements in chronic headaches after learning how to stop the stress-producing habit of “catastrophizing,” or constantly thinking negative thoughts about their pain. Chronic stress may also cause disease, either because of changes in your body or the overeating, smoking and other bad habits people use to cope with stress. Job strain — high demands coupled with low decision-making latitude — is associated with increased risk of coronary disease, for example. Other forms of chronic stress, such as depression and low levels of social support, have also been implicated in increased cardiovascular risk. And once you’re sick, stress can also make it harder to recover.
