What is the use of having crores in one’s bank account and yet not being able to enjoy good health? A healthy man can enjoy the benefits of his wealth. But a wealthy man, if he is not healthy, will always be afflicted with physical complaints.
In fact, if you are asked to choose between the two, always opt for good health. Because health can give wealth, but wealth does not unsure good health. Very often the desperate search for wealth takes its toll on one’s health. It deprives a man of the necessary physical exercise. It makes the person follow unhealthy food habits in the name of saving time. It thus brings along with it stress, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, ulcers and diabetes. As a result a person may have to spend the later part of his or her life in and out of hospitals and undergo expensive operations in order to keep himself or herself alive. Finally he or she dies a stressful premature death. And all the wealth he or she has accumulated is distributed amongst the heirs. Rather, this person could have enjoyed his or her wealth while he or she had lived if only he or she had believed in the dictum, ‘Health is Wealth’.
