I've known someone who always complain that he doesn't have enough money to provide all his needs, he did work very hard but still not enough. So I come up with this questions in my mind. Which would you prefer having a lots of money, or being healthy?Do you believe that health is wealth?

Hey careguarden! If you don't have your health than what good is money? If you aren't healthy than how do you expect to spend your money? That is something that never made sense to me! I would definitely rather have my health over anything in this world! I don't understand people who don't understand that health comes before anything always! Think about it people!

Well I think it's simply because they fail to count their blessings and so they tend to ignore the importance of good health in their life. Since when we're focus with what we have we fail to see what we have. You're right people should always understand the importance of good health than anything in this world. It's hard to enjoy the beauty of life when you're lying in bed and suffering with pain. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

health is wealth. But not all wealthy people die of misery and terrible illness or loneliness. Whether you live a healthy and wealthy life or die miserably in loneliness is all about making good choices in your life, and having enough wisdom to know whats good for your body or not. For the last 15 years I have been working around many very rich people, and I envy them because of their money. They can buy the best vitamin & supplements and drink the best green tea every morning, while I can't. When they are stressed, they can go to the spa and got massaged, and come back freshened. They can take a big holiday to beautiful places to relax twice a year, and come back to the office happy as a kid. Most of these people are in their 60's - 70's and they are so healthy......

Oh yeah, It's all a matter of wisdom and choice in life. Although there could be a real difference when you have lots of money, like when you get sick you can afford to extend your life whereas when you're poor and you can't afford to admit to the best hospital and buy enough medicine. But still it's better if you are poor but very healthy, than being rich and sickly. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Yeah, you're right, if we are healthy we can have a chance to earn lots of money, but too much work could lose everything that we have. So it's important to be able to manage and balance our time. If we spend too much time working and earning money, then our life will be shorten and we won't able to enjoy what we work hard. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

i believe that health is wealth. many of us take health for granted until we are caught up with health problems. to me, everything in life should not be taken for granted especially health. with health, i can go and work and earn a good living as i work hard, get the correct training and discipline. without health, the spirit is willing but the person cannot work due to ill health. right from the start, i really wish to know that take care of health . how much money is relative and money is never enough. thus one have to try very hard to budget and to live within one's mean which is rather hard when you dont have enough. still have to struggle and continue to budget. have to start from basics and keep to basic necessities and needs. when we are tight with money, can only afford to have needs meet and cannot afford to have wants. work hard and be discipline and dont give up. at the same time pray for God's grace and mercy for conditions of life to improve and that there will sufficient provision from God. have faith with hard work.

Yeah, I agree with you, most often we take our health for granted, we spend too much time working than taking time to relax, we fail to remember that relaxation is not a luxury rather it's a necessity. This is one of the quotes that I love " We squander Health in search of Wealth, we Toil, we Sweat, we Save. Then squander our Wealth in search of Health and only find the Grave." I always have this quote post on my wall just to remind me what is more important in life. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Wealth can't buy health or happiness. Many very wealthy people end their lives sick and lonely, I would rather have good health any day

I have lived to see great and wealthy people. people with lots of money but they die and leave their wealth. Mostly they die as a result of poor health, Seen great people with money languishing in hospital beds because of sickness. We have very poor guys around having fun because of good health. You can never enjoy this life in poor health. Yes wealth is health.

Yeah, we can never enjoy life with poor health. Although sometimes, we fail to appreciate what we have because we often look for other things and most often we know the importance of our health when we get sick, because we can no longer do the things we enjoy, things that gives us pleasure and happiness. Being healthy is the most important thing we should have. Money can't buy health. I've some neighbors who are rich and they are bedridden and they can't enjoy their wealth. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Health is wealth. If you compromise your health then in the end you will be the one to suffer. Try to have balance in your life. Work hard but watch out your health. Take your vitamins and eat healthy food, you deserve to eat delicious healthy food since your work hard, right?
