Exercising can help boost your savings accounts, scientists say

Scientists believe that people who exercise on a regular basis are likely to have more money in their savings accounts than those who are couch potatoes.

A new study conducted by the Cleveland State University in Ohio in the US has indicated that active Aussies often earn more than their lethargic peers, the Daily Telegraph reports.

The research showed that workers who go for a jog or head to the gym three times a week are not only boosting their health, but are also expected to earn nine per cent more than other people.

Author of the report Dr Vasilios Kosteas told the news provider that those who exert themselves physically are more inclined to put in extra hours at work, which can lead to promotions. Employers also see this type of person as being more determined and dedicated to a cause.

Extra income is needed in many households at the minute, as the Advertiser reported last week that utility bills in South Australia in particular are set to increase sharply and plenty of Aussies are finding it hard to cope with the high cost of living.
