Health = Happiness

Hello! Too busy with site work that is going to be re-constructed soon! But that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t blog J Recently came across our health minister’s advice through one of the mails that said, we should first take care of our health to enjoy our life! Well said really! We all are running behind so many things daily in the attempt to feel “happy” that we don’t give time to understand whether we really are happy. Moreover, definition of happiness varies for everyone. One might be happy in earning money and the other in listening to favorite music and doing nothing. But if you ask learned people which can be said as the greatest gift to mankind that makes us happy, they will say “Health!”
True enough, isn’t it? Let’s think you feel happy by going out and eating in posh restaurant or you feel happy to enjoy an outing to a plush resort. But just think if you are suffering from a crippling disease or pain somewhere, would you be able to enjoy and seek happiness from these ventures? No! Some cynics may say they will be happy if they earn whatever they may have to suffer; but it’s not true. So, let’s put HEALTH on top of our agenda from today! That doesn’t mean life will be dull and we shouldn’t enjoy ourselves. Let’s make health part of our life and let it happen naturally to us by living naturally!
