In my personal opinion I think some things are out of control! Let me explain, I was watching a commercial for a brand name store that sells electronics.  A lady approaches the sales person and says I have this big list to buy for Christmas. The sales person, doing her job, proceeds to take big ticket items from the shelf.  The shopper is excited, she has everything on her list and if this were a true scenario, the cost would have been easily one to two thousand dollars.

So what is the healthy habit for this week?  Don’t buy it if you can’t pay for it and I don’t mean put it on a credit card and spend the next three to six, or six to nine months paying for it.  Your health is not worth it!  Yes I said your health. 

Finances are one of the top five stressors for most people.  I have said it time and time again, stress depletes the vitality of a person and their minerals.  When a person’s vitality is depleted they are more susceptible to health related challenges.  As well when you are stressed, you deplete your minerals, which are vital for your immune system.  Dr. Linus Pauling, a two time Nobel Prize winner states, “every sickness, illness and disease is caused from a mineral deficiency”.

Minerals are at the base of our bodies at a cellular level.  Most synapse or cellular interactions happen between potassium and sodium.  In order for our bodies to function and send signals to do all the various functions our body does, there are chemical and electrical synapse as well as others. They need the minerals to function.

Getting back to my point with overspending at Christmas or anytime, you don’t need the financial burden to stress you out.  I get it, as a parent you want to provide things for your children, well the thing is, they are just things. 

It wasn’t just the commercial that I recently watched that made me think about some things that are out of control.  My husband and I took two of our grandchildren to the show recently, aged five and the other one just a month away from being three, so she was no charge.  I took their favorite juice boxes and some healthy snakes in my purse.  I don’t have a big purse just because it looks good.  I have always taken my own snacks with me, even when my children were little. It was a 3D movie so the cost was a little higher and we also purchased one popcorn and drink combination.  After the show we went to a local coffee shop for bagels and drinks.  The end result was $70.00 for the evening.  I know, I could make one of those credit card commercials, ending with the smile on their faces and say, priceless, but it got me to thinking.  How can a family take their children to the show now a day?  That is what I mean by, some things are out of control in my opinion. 

So call me frugal, call me old fashion, but I truly believe, most people add unnecessary stress to their own lives and it is literally killing them.  If you can’t pay for it today, then you don’t buy it today and that is this week’s healthy habit.
