Investments. We all make them. We invest time, money, and attention every day.
That TV show you spent 20 hours of your life watching? That was an investment of your time and attention.
That new coat, those new boots, and your car. Those are monetary investments.
Every day we are called to make investments. But how many of these investments are for your health?

In an attempt to save money and stay on budget you might be scrimping on the one investment that could affect them all. Your health.
Investing in Yourself
I’ve noticed that every time my life started to “take off” and feel really magickal was when I invested in myself.
One of my earliest investments was in taking Tae Kwon Do lessons. My parents footed this investment, yet it is still repaying us today. In fact, it could save my life were I ever in a tough spot and needed to defend myself.
Another really life changing investment was attending University. I paid for all of my college education myself, save for the first year that my parents covered. College taught me so much about software, the working life, and what I wanted to do with my own life.
Other investments that have had a huge impact on me are getting a coach, attending raw food lectures, attending seminars, and buying books about raw food. I’ve also invested in kitchen tools like the vitamix, and a dehydrator.
None of these investments were necessary. I could have easily gone on living my life without any of these additions. But I am who I am today because of them.
Other important investments I make every day: eating high raw, exercising, sleeping enough, thinking good thoughts, and spending quality time with the people I love. These are all investments of time and attention too. (And sometimes willpower!)
Investing in Your Health Without Giving Up
One trap that I used to fall into when it came to “investing in myself” was giving up my power.
