Health is Wealth

Money matters. Since time immemorial, mankind has always strived to find money sources. Even in the ancient times, money makes and unmakes people. There are many stories of treasure hunts and even up to the current generation, myths about hidden treasures all around the world still circulate.
Mankind has really put greater value on wealth among all other things in the world. Unfortunately, wealth is hard to catch. People know that wealth is something they must work hard for. As people strived harder to amass wealth, there came a new concept about the real value of the word.
Health is wealth. Such is a simple sentence but its sense and meaning is so tremendous and deep. Through the years, in all societies around the world, health has become synonymous and equivalent to the value of wealth.
There is syllogism and analogy between the two different concepts. Health is as valuable as money. That is because without it, you surely would not enjoy anything in life. You would not be able to appreciate the beauty of each day and live up to acknowledge the joys that come to even the simplest encounters with family and friends.
Without health, people would not be able to work productively. Thus, there would be little chances and opportunities for earning and doing jobs. People need to work to be able to generate income. But one cannot work if he is ill and is incapable to do physical activities. Even office jobs entail good health of employees because through experiences and history, people have determined that without good physical condition, the mental state would also be affected.
How to have good health
You need to do measures to attain good and lasting health. Doing so would enable you maximize your body's capacity and you could take as much opportunities to earn more and live better. Here are some simple, yet effective guidelines that would help you attain and maintain good health.

  1. Live a good and healthy lifestyle. Most jobs today entail stationary lifestyles: workers are required to sit down in front of computers the whole day. Many executives stay inside the premises of the office sitting around while attending meetings and doing paper works. It is logical that many workers nowadays do not get enough physical exercise. Thus, many tend to become obese, hypertensive and weak. Go to the gym at least every other day and work out so that you could sweat all your fats and cholesterol accumulation all out.

  1. Eat nutritious and a balanced diet. There are so many processed food available in the market. Fast food chains are also immensely popular. However, if you loyally and regularly patronize such foods, you would get bloated. That is because it has been found that processed and fast foods are the main culprits for obesity cases because of their fat content. Eat more fruits and vegetables, avoid lard and fatty foods and prefer healthy foods.

  1. Quit unhealthy vices and habits. Smoking is the top bad habit. Time and again, health regulators have always warned about the dangers of smoking. Aside from causing ling cancer, the habit is also cited for several severe medical cases like bronchitis, cough, asthma and even early onset of aging. Drinking too much alcoholic beverages is equally bad as well as substance abuse.

 Every school celebrates its Sports Day and, to this all, the children very longingly look forward to. My school the St. Andrews Sr. Secondary School also has its Sports Day every year sometime in the month of November.The month of November is earmarked for the occasion, as, at this time, the weather is congenial for a long span of games on the field. When this day is about to come, there appears to be a lot of activity in the entire school premises as take lime. Avocado so there is a lot of overtime beyond the scheduled hours of routine work.Weeks before the Sports Day, children start giving their names for different events, and then, after the school hours, practices start. The children, who do not participate in any events, get other duties of the like of making relevant charts, making lists of games and participants etc.

It is obvious that something is on for, at least for a fortnight before the event, studies are put as if on the hold, except of course for the STDs X and XII. The rest of the school is seen bustling with enjoyment and merriment for all enjoy such events.All the children, all the teachers and even all the other non-teaching staff seems to busy with some work or the other. This is because everyone - yes, everyone is assigned a duty to see that the Day passes off well.After a fortnight of being over busy with the preparations for the Sports Day, at last the day arrives. The lawns are so very meticulously done up, white chalk powder lines are installed for different events. Victory stands are beautifully done up to make the victors feel proud of being there after the events.

All the children are so well groomed in their white uniforms that, it is a sight to watch and admire. To cap it all, the staff members are also very smartly dressed specially those involved with the different events - they blend so well with the smart children that, the total effect is just smashing.The day starts with the usual Assembly and then, all of us are instructed to go to our allotted places on the lawn, class wise. There are volunteers from the senior children who guide the smaller ones to their respective places and soon all is set as per the plan.As soon as all is settled, the Chief Guest arrives, and the Principal goes out to receive him/ her. The Chief Guest is taken to the dais and as soon as he/ she are settled, the Principal says a few words to introduce the guest to all, and requests him to say a few words and declare the Sports open.Now, the guest speaks usually on the importance of Sports and Sports Day, and declares the opening of the function. As soon as these two important speeches are over, the Chief Guest declares the Sports Day open, land there and then the events start.

One by one the events take place in a very well disciplined manner and the winners listed and made to stand on the Victory Stand and cheered by one and all.The games and Sports last for about two hours and then comes the most interesting moment of the function - the moment of appreciating the winners by awarding them gifts and prizes, cups and shields.This is the ultimate moment of pleasure for winners when, amidst loud clapping and shouting of cheers, they get their rewards for their good work - from the Chief Guest.Even though I am not a very great enthusiast of games or sports, I just love this day and look forward to it through the year. I also make it a point to attend school on this day every year though I never participate. The thrill, the excitement, and then, the pleasure of winning are all moments worth seeing and enjoying.

I love to see my friends and others participating with their hearts and souls with a complete involvement in the games. Their victory boosts up even my morale.Every year, after seeing this event, I decide that, I should also try to take part, but, the enthusiasm soon fades away as, I must admit that, I am not too keen a lover or fan of sports and games. I do love to watch it all but; I never feel the urge to participate.
