“Health is a blessing that money cannot buy” Izaak Walton I absolutely agree with this quotation. Today we live in the world where the primary goal of existence for most people is to earn as much money as possible. However, there are some values which are more important. And one of them is our health. First of all, health provides us with opportunities. Being of sound mind and body means that you can get a higher promotion, you may choose active kinds of sport, you may travel or do whatever you like. Being healthy means that you can live without any restrictions such as strict diets, without taking different antibiotics and other medicine. A healthy person can look after not only himself but also others. He can be a useful member of society. Secondly, it is no doubt that if you have enough money you can get the most expensive medical care, go to private hospitals or special resorts. People spend half of their life working till exhaustion and the rest of the time trying to restore their health. I think it’s worthless. Furthermore, there are some illnesses which are incurable such as cancer, especially last stages, AIDS, Alzheimer disease and others. Thirdly, people often begin to think about their health when they have already got some problems. Some even smoke, drink alcohol, use drugs without realizing the consequences. To be as fit as a fiddle we must be in the habit of following a healthy way of life and give up all our bad habits. In conclusion, I’d like to say that everyone decides for himself what is more important. However, it is necessary to remember that money is the thing that you can earn or borrow. But wealth is nothing without health. So we must take care of it.
