VALUES OF GOOD HEALTH
‘Health is wealth’ is a famous saying. A person can work whole-heartedly only when he in good health. If he works whole-heartedly, he can gather wealth. Nothing can be done without good health. Only a sound health can give a man sound body and physique. Sound mind can be held only in a sound body. Ill health gives way to many ailments and a person become lean and thin. His beauty is lost. Laziness and weakness engulf him. His efficiency is affected. It is therefore very necessary for us to remain healthy. We can keep our body healthy by fresh air, regular exercise, proper rest, morning walks, suitable recreation and balanced and nutritious food. Smoking, drinking alcohol, taking drugs etc. have adverse effect on our health. These must be avoided. There is another principle that we should follow- “Early to bed, early to rise, Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise’. A wise person has said, “When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, everything is lost”. This saying also puts emphasis on good health.
