In Pursuit of Health, Wealth, and Freedom

Ups and Downs

Over the years your income will change with new jobs and raises, and your investments will be swayed by the market. If you become complacent when times are good, you’ll end up losing big time when the markets take a hit. You need to pay attention, listen to your financial advisor, and not completely panic. And when you receive a promotion and a raise, or you upgrade to another company with a corner office, don’t spend the extra. Save the extra to guard against leaner times and to build real wealth for the long-haul.

While someone with a high school diploma can expect to earn about $1.3 million over his or her lifetime, a college graduate can expect to earn $2.3 million in that same period of time. That’s a whole retirement account. A college graduate who saves that extra money can retire without worry. A doctoral degree will earn you another $1 million dollars beyond the BA. Frankly, education of any kind is inherently worthwhile.

Meditation

If you want to relieve yourself of stress, practice meditation. The deep breathing exercises lauded by meditators isn’t a new-age-y crock; deep breathing exercises tap into the body’s autonomic nervous system and offer your body more oxygen with each breath, giving your cells and your body more energy. It lowers blood pressure and protects against heart disease. It even counteracts the negative effects of stress on memory recall. It’ll also give you time to sort out some of your issues and to figure out what’s really most important to you. Best of all, there are no downsides.
