When asked what we want in life, we usually have the words “happiness”, “wealth” and “success” in our minds. We often forget that a prerequisite to anything we want in life is good health. We often take our own health for granted. Our physical health is the most important thing in life. It serve as the foundation that allows us to develop the other dimensions of wellness in our life.
Health is like money, we never have a true idea of its value until we lose it.– Josh Billings
Before we can pursue any of our goals in life; it is important that we have a healthy mind and body. We also need a healthy mindset and social life to support us along the way. Of course, we also need to maintain healthy habits to sustain our health. For example, if we have healthy financial habits; we can preserve and grow our wealth so we can do even more of the things we love. When did you last evaluate your physical health?
It is health that is real wealth. And not pieces of gold and silver.– Mahatma Gandhi
Money can buy a lot of things but health cannot be bought. You should develop habits that help you maintain your health in all aspects of your life. After all, we only have one body and mind. They are what enables us to move and experience this world; and change it the way we want it to be.
Don’t let your health take the backset when planning your goals. Make sure that you observe healthy habits in everything you do. This allows you to be healthy enough to enjoy the success that you want in your life. Not only will you enjoy life more; your family will also benefit from you being healthy enough to celebrate life’s successes with them.
