Health Is Wealth


Kevin Dede, Writer

Did you know that it’s better to be healthy than wealthy? Yes, it’s true. Studies have shown that people who are healthier are much happier than those with money.

Yes, it’s hard to work out sometimes. We all have those days. Why would I leave my comfy bed with cold pillows and my phone to go and sweat, make my heart pump at 200 mph, and deplete my built-in oxygen tank? However, workout is better than no workout. We may not want to exercise at first, but we never regret a workout afterwards. You might regret eating those hot Cheetos and pizza, but you’ll never regret working out. Your body will reflect your mood, giving you you the strength and energy you need to conquer the day ahead.

As I stated, it’s better to be healthy than wealthy. Physical objects can leave you at any time. Your Lamborghini could crash. Your mansion could flood. But do you know what doesn’t leave you? Your body. Treat your body with respect, because at the end of the day, it is the only thing keeping you alive. So take care of it. Nurture it because it’s going to be with you until you die.

Did you know that the best way to lose weight is to adjust your diet? A common misconception is that working out is the best way to lose weight. 70% of losing weight stems from diet, while only 30% is working out.
