Mahatma Gandhi, a great Indian philosopher, once said: "it is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver." However, people seem to neglect these words. People are too busy building up their money, working so hard to the extent of losing and forgetting one most essential thing that is health. According to the World Health Organization, health is the state of complete physical, social and mental well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Every individual desires to live completely free from illness. It is very important to be aware of what we put it in our body. Moreover, it is a golden rule that every individual should take good care of his or her body. Hence, if you think of the body like a car, you can only use the required gas. If the car required premium, you cannot use regular unleaded because it'll destroy the car from the inside out. So, the food is the fuel but it could be regular unleaded or premium. It is very important to remember that we have to eat the proper fuel that our body needs. Proper balanced diet is what gives us the energy we need to make it through our daily lives.
I personally believe that in order to be healthy, we have to be aware of we do with our body. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is vital to keep your health in good condition. We eat and move to live. So, it is necessary that we sustain our body with nutritious food. Eating a well-balanced diet, not too much and not too less. Having a daily exercise. Walking is the most convenient and easiest way. Getting your butt out in the sofa bed and taking a tour in the park. This will help you get your body refreshed and renewed from the everyday stress. Furthermore, always keep your mind and heart strong. "For a sound heart is the life of flesh. For the heart that is healthy, morally and physically, influences over the whole body in all its functions and relations", coming from the book of Proverbs.
