Dr. Holly Lucille
Dr. Holly Lucille stops by with advice on living a healthy and wealthy life by investing in your 'health account.' Dr. Lucille uses a finance analogy to explain how your overall health can be viewed as a series of deposits and withdrawals. In the same way we manage financial debt by making more deposits than withdrawals, Dr. Lucille explains how over time, making healthy choices adds up to significant 'health deposits.' And Dr. Lucille is not talking about major life changes but instead she suggests starting with simple 'health deposits' like staying hydrated or taking time to relax. Big or small, Dr. Lucille explains how we can accrue more 'health deposits' to mitigate those inevitable 'health withdrawals.'
