Investing in stocks or real estate is the same as investing in your health and fitness

Most people know if you’re investing in stocks and real estate they go up over a period of time. Along that journey some stocks will give you a dividend and property will give you a rental yield. Giving you the ability to reinvest to grow your portfolio. Health and fitness is the same, you have to invest time and effort into making your body stronger, fitter and more agile over time. The dividends that you receive from working out aren’t always visible to the eye but they are there. Over long periods of time just like investing in stocks and real estate you will be happy that you have made health and fitness a priority in your life. The longer you invest in your health and fitness the better the results long term.
