“Health is more important than Wealth” by Sunayna S.4A (2008-2009)

Health is wealth. To have a wonderful and happy life, health is the most important thing. Staying healthy always allows us to enjoy all the happiness on the world. With a healthy body and healthy mind, everything becomes simple and easy.

People work very hard to earn money and never consider the importance of their health, in the end; they spend all their wealth to maintain their health. It is quite silly though as they forget that money can buy very good medicine, however, money cannot bring them health and strong body. Some people do a lot of things to maintain their health by having wide varieties of functional food, however, because of the lack of doing exercise and having healthy food, as well as stress take away their health. It is proved that overwork leads us suffering from varies disease.

If we have a healthy body, we can earn money and we can have a happy life. A Spanish proverb says that ‘A man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools’. If we have both happiness and health, we can also enjoy our wealth. Thus, health is more important than wealth in our life.
