Health is the greatest Wealth and the best investment of your life. In today’s busy world where everyone is running to chase their dreams in the blink of an eye, the value of real treasure is being lost. In the present scenario, be it a child or an adult, no one has time for a halt to reflect how we are actually treating our lives. Money has been prioritized so much that we almost forget that there is no use of earning money if one has no health to handle it.
Mahatma Gandhi has truly said that-
“It is health that is the real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver”.
I truly agree with what Buddha said,
“To keep the body in good health is a duty. Otherwise, we shall not able to keep our mind strong and clear”.
Being healthy is not only about having three heavy meals every day. It is a misconception. Physical health and mental health have to be given equal care.
Today with the advancement of technology and the integration of automated machines and computing systems everywhere, our dependence on machines and robots has increased to unbelievable heights. This needs to stop and we need to realize how necessary it is for each one of us to have a sound sleep so that we can wake up on time. Benjamin Franklin said,
“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise”.
This phenomenon is not easily accepted by today’s generation but many of the CEO’S and other prominent faces of the world tell in their interviews that the secret to their success is waking up early in the morning.
New trends like late night partying, addiction to mobile phones is deteriorating health in a large way. We need to stop this and take care of our mental and physical health. We need to construct our lives into a schedule where time is given importance. Walking in the fresh air and eating healthy will maintain our long-term immunity. Reading good books, sharing our problems with friends, handling our anxiety on a daily basis will surely maintain our mental health too. Jim Rohn said,
“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live”.
