In terms of your health and well-being it’s very important to maintain current accounts. Deposits always need to exceed withdrawals. But sometimes we don’t know we’re making a withdrawal, or we forget to make enough deposits to cover a big withdrawal. That’s the time we get sick.
For example, stress causes a big withdrawal from your health account. Your body expends high levels of energy to cope with stress – regardless of whether the stress is physical or psychological. And ongoing stress causes ongoing withdrawals.
In times of stress we need to pay particular attention to our health accounts. Healthy nutrition, regular exercise, and sufficient rest become even more important. However, when we’re stressed we often don’t think we have any energy left to do the things that are going to keep us healthy, such as making time to exercise or cook healthy food at home instead of going out to eat.
It’s well worth making the time, even though we don’t want to. Taking the time now to replenish our health accounts will pay off big time down the road.
