Health Is Wealth

Truly, there is no truer maxim in life than this phrase. We may have all the riches and material comforts in life, but if we are not healthy, we will never live to enjoy them. It is sad to see people work themselves to death to accumulate wealth. And when they attain it, they spend all their money for the healing of diverse diseases they have contacted because of the unhealthy habits they developed in their mad quest to acquire their cherished wealth. The solution to this is moderation in all aspects of our lives. True, we must set goals and try to attain them so that we can live a fulfilled life. But in attaining them, we must never forgo or neglect the other aspects of our lives.

We must live a truly holistic lifestyle. We have to eat the right amount of nutritious food that enables our body to rebuild itself. We must exercise regularly. We must have the right amount of sunshine and a regular communing with nature to soothe our nerves and calm our minds. We must have healthy interactions with our loved ones, relatives and friends, avoiding enmity with anyone. We must always think positive thoughts of love, hope, joy, peace and reverence for all life. We must banish all negative thoughts, emotions and feelings from our minds. And most of all, we must be at peace with God, pursuing our purpose in life as He delineated it for us.
As we become a vital cog in the economy of God and the brotherhood of men, we feel fulfilled and satisfied with our lives. Then we can honestly say that we have lived a truly happy, healthy and fulfilled life for all to witness and glorify our God. TO GOD BE THE GLORY NOW AND FOREVERMORE.

If wealth is lost, nothing is lost.
If health is lost, everything is lost.

Very true Mel,no amount of money or any other pleasure can replace the blessing of good health.

"As we become a vital cog in the economy of God and the brotherhood of men, we feel fulfilled and satisfied with our lives" - so beautifully put.

Thanks for the wise post my friend.Have a lovely weekend.

God Bless You and your loved ones always!

Hi Sameera,
Yes, if we are unhealthy there are so many things we cannot do. Then we rue the excesses we made that led to our unhealthy and diseased bodies. Better to have a healthy and fully functioning body to be fully productive for the attainment of God's purposes in our lives. Thanks for your visit and comments my dear friend. God bless you always.

hi Mel,

i kid you not, i was just thinking about you and then you just left comments on my blog. thank you always for your kind and inspiring comments. they're always so timely.

i've been so busy with the class and trying to keep up with everything else in my life that i haven't had much time for keeping up my blog or for visiting. i may not always do a post, but i'll make sure i visit more often.

there's nothing like good health in our bodies and minds. when our bodies and minds are functioning properly, then we can deal more efficiently with everything else. excellent blog post Mel. you and your family have a wonderful weekend! peace & blessings my friend!

as they said, don't overwork yourself or else your salary would just be payment for your hospital bills :)

Hi Tintin,
Your words ring with wisdom, but alas, some people would only realize the reality of their imbalanced lifestyle when they spend their hard earned money paying off all the hospital bills. Thanks for your visit and inspired comments. God bless you always.
