It’s about building healthy habits.
At the end of the day, what we eat and how we take care of our bodies are what’s going to count most. And it takes a big commitment to actually stick to a healthy lifestyle.
Smart people know the body can suffer from consequences as a result of bad choices which can motivate them to take care of themselves, whereas a person with lower intelligence might only know it on a surface level. So it’s worth learning more about your body and what harms it. It can be scary, but it pays off in the long run.
Intelligence can bring money, which comes with perks.
A good education often results in a high-paying job and money matters. People with salaries greater than average have access to better medical care, they can splurge on beauty procedures from time to time, they eat more quality foods, they travel — you get the idea. This little bit of extra care can make a big difference in our later years.
