Health is Wealth

As we all know, the popular and common saying is “Health is Wealth.” It is as true as our life. Good health keeps us always happy and gives us a feeling of complete physical, mental, social, and intellectual well-being. Good health keeps us away from diseases and health disorders. The loss of good health causes a loss of all happiness. Mahatma Gandhi, a great freedom fighter (also called Bapu), said, “It is health which is real wealth, and not pieces of gold and silver.”

Good health helps us to live a good, balanced and healthy life. Our good health needs several things to get done daily. We need fresh air, clean water, proper sunlight, a balanced diet, away from junk food, a clean and healthy atmosphere, a greener environment, a morning walk, personal hygiene, proper education, etc.

Healthy food at the proper time is necessary for a healthy body which is possible only through a well-balanced diet. It promotes the proper growth and development of our body which keeps us mentally, physically, and socially healthy. With the help of our good health, we can fight any bad situations in life. We should never forget that we need proper food, water, air, physical activity, sleep and rest daily.
