Wealth is a combination of
having enough money for one’s needs, the ability to enjoy that money, be an
active contributor to society that society would look up to, be able to have
and sustain a meaningful network of friends and family that contributed to
wholesome experiences…etc. It was about the ability of a person to function as
a happy, effective individual, who was able to make most decisions out of a
sense of freedom, rather than compulsion.

sound sleep and appetite. Life becomes a burden for one, who is constantly
ailing. Life has little charm for him. He feels tired of life, always
complaining about one thing or the other.

to know what your purpose in life is, ability to have meaningful relationships
with those around you, ability to solve problems that come your way, being fed
and having shelter, being grateful for all that you have in life, having
enough money to get by, and when you are healthy, you get to have more joy
in your life, you can experience new things and you can grow, that is why
health is wealth.

everywhere and you interact with people with it, right? So, if you take care of
your body, then experiencing things such as sex, driving, eating and all other
fun things become more enjoyable. If you don’t take care of yourself, then stress and other diseases make
simple things unbearable.

health leading to weight gain, heart diseases and cholesterol. Eat seasonal

can’t have it anymore. Make it a point to eat healthy stay healthy.
Avoid Mindless Eating
hungry, you eat. You are bored, you eat. You are angry, you eat. And you are
lazy to do your chores, you eat again. Unless otherwise you have plans of
getting shifted to a hospital permanently, DON’T do this. Eat when you are hungry as simple as that. Your stomach isn’t a dump-yard in
which you can allow your emotional appetite to dispose its junk cravings. Eat

that too being completely oblivious of what you are eating, can be dangerous.

human body is a machine. And just like any machine requires rest and
recharging, our bodies also need sufficient amounts of sleep. Most of us,
burdened by the monotony of work, tend to sleep less and focus more on our
tasks. But the thing is, you can’t really focus if you haven’t had a good
night’s sleep. Adequate sleep increases our productivity levels and helps us in
getting our tasks done faster. So the next time you plan to skip your sleep in
