It's getting costlier to be alive and breathing...
Cost of living is rising; out pacing income at most times.
Medical cost is rising faster as the population ages, newer technologies are adopted, more tests are readily available but not necessarily relevant.
The best defense against medical cost is to exercise and remains healthy; preventive medicine and early detection also reduces costs.

Interestingly, you have heard of 'budget hotel', 'budget travel', 'budget meals' but why isn't there a 'budget hospital'?
Guess, when it comes to a life threatening situation or sickness, you want the best; whether you can or cannot afford it (becomes secondary).
The priority must be to live healthily, eats well and have enough rest rather than live 'budgetly' - budget travel, budget holidays, budget meals!

Our role on Planet Earth is to enjoy and experience every facets of life.
It is a total failure to live like a church mouse and to have a luxurious sendoff.
It is great to be rich but if you leave behind plenty without a chance to spend a dime, the money is NOT yours; at best, you have lived, but to most, you lived stupidly!
Live within your means, live healthily and happily.
Relax, whats yours shall be yours, whatever isn't shall never be!
