Financial Health vs Physical Health?

My friends at Credit Karma enlisted the help of Harris Interactive (the famous “Harris Poll” people) to take a look at how people prioritize their financial health and their physical health. The results were a surprise to me. With money at the top of the list of things keeping people up at night, I’d have thought being debt free would rank pretty high.

Why not leave a comment? Tell me, what’s more important to you right now, your weight, or your debt? No cheating, you can’t say, “both!”

    I think it is all look OK. We used to debt from the birth, so we do not look at it as a burden.

    With the health and current wealth of knowledge you could keep on selling yourself and time, to earn more money. That is why priorities are set somewhat unusual.

    That’s a tougher question than I thought.

    My impulse is to say weight because I don’t have any credit card debt (and I suppose I could shed a few pounds). But I do think a lot about maintaining quality of life, and that means keeping my income and current set of gigs going. I have a mortgage and car loan, but I don’t really think about them. They’re paid automatically and easy for me to cover (out of sight, out of mind), but my perspective would change if my income changed.

    So… since I can’t cheat I’ll say my weight for now.
