We all want to be successful in our life and one of the most critical and perhaps the most underrated factor which will determine our success is good Health. The proverb ‘Health is wealth’ sums up the importance of it. Success always have a magic formula in the form of hard work, determination and focus. None of these can be achieved without good health. Arlon Specter, the famous American Senator once said ‘There is nothing more important than our good health- that’s our principal asset. Being healthy can be both physical and mental. Sometimes our physical state might look healthy but disappointments and frustrations, if not managed properly can lead to desperation and depressions and can affect our health. Srinivasan Ramanujan’s brilliance, which produced more than 3000 theorems and equations, redefining the world of mathematics, lasted only for 32 years and failed only to bad health. Fortunately, health is something which can be nurtured. The realization of its importance is the first step in achieving it. Following good food habits is the other important part of it. We should stay away from junk foods and drinks and should avoid taking excess food. Doing regular exercises and taking part in sports and games also helps us to stay healthy. It’s also important to have good sleep. Good manners and respecting others will help us to keep calm and stay in peace with our self. Practicing Yoga can also improve our confidence, concentration levels and attitude. Comparing to modern times, our ancestors were healthy as they always lead an active life in tune with nature and according to circumstances. But as technology progressed, we became more immobile and our habits and life styles changed. This made a significant impact to our health. Today it’s important that we learn lessons from our ancestors and take a decision to start investing early to one of the biggest investments of our life- Good Health.
