Health is freedom from disease and sickness. Without health, we cannot do any work and we cannot improve in life. So, health is the primary need for every one of us.
Health is the best wealth
Health is really the best wealth. It is better than grain and gold. It is much better than land or building. You may be the master of millions. You may have vast property. But if you have no health, you cannot enjoy your goods. On the contrary you will suffer a lot from physical pain and you cannot earn anything. If you have good health, you will earn a lot of knowledge and wealth. Health is the mother of happiness. So, health is the best wealth.
How to keep health well
To keep our health well, we should obey the laws of hygiene. Food, exercise, rest and sleep, regular habits, neatness and cleanliness, air and light, punctuality and peace of mind are the primary conditions for good health. Hence, we should eat healthy food and balance diet. Everyday we should take exercise in morning and evening. We should be regular in all our daily duties. We should be neat and clean. We should let fresh air and light into our houses. We should be punctual in all our daily duties. Peace of mind is another condition for good health. So, we should not worry over small things of life. Labor must be followed by rest. There is an old saying-
“Early to bed and early to rise
Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise”
Therefore we should rise early in the morning and sleep in the evening.
It is true that health is the best wealth. But it is a matter of regret that most of us do not realize it. Hygiene is taught in the class but nobody follows the principle of hygiene. Hence they are falling prey to many kinds of disease. However, it is hoped that they will soon understand their mistakes and will give up their dirty habits.
