Chapter 4: Health and Leisure
“A man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools”
Your health is one of the most important things in your life. It is vital that you take the best care of yourself as possible. However, sometimes this can be very difficult. People get discouraged and this makes it harder to eat right, exercise and take care of your body. That’s why more and more diseases appear nowadays and this quote will make you understand clearly the value of health.
We must understand the main meaning of this comparison. The tools are like hands of a mechanic. It’s impossible for a mechanic to repair something without any tools. A mechanic who is too busy to take care of his tools can not do anything and get any success, because his tools, without any care, will become worse and even out of order. It is compared with the health of a man because it also has a lot of similarities. People need health to exist. You can have a little money or knowledge but you must have a good health. Someone misunderstands the meaning of health so that they neglect their health. They just focus on studying, earning money or so on and they don’t know that their health is the most important condition to help them do anything they want. When you have a good health, it will support you in studying, earning money, taking care of your family and even getting the success. It is like the tool’s support for a mechanic, when he has a good tool which has a lot of functions, he can do his work easily. Money can be earned again after losing, and you can spend all your life studying but if you lose your health, it means you lose your life. Therefore, before spending your time working, studying, you should take care of your health carefully. Doing exercise regularly is really a good way and you have to remember that you shouldn’t make your body exhausted after a hard-working day, try to relax yourself after working to keep your health better....
