it is health that is real wealth...

And not pieces of gold and silver, as Mahatma Gandhi once said.


None of what I say, do, have, or achieve in life will matter if I won't be alive enough to enjoy any of it.
the hardships of being healthy
Generally, the word 'health' is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or illness.

Ask people about the key thing (or lack thereof) that makes them healthy, and you would get varying answers.

Some may say luck or family history, but most would point to their lifestyle - whether they smoke or drink, how much they exercise, how much they eat and drink, what they eat and drink, and perhaps how well they manage stress and the daily mishaps of life.
While there's no doubt that personal lifestyle has a straightforward impact on health, being a healthy person is generally viewed as more complex than that.

I view being healthy as being in a stable emotional, mental, and physical state of mind with a plant-based diet and a moderate amount of exercise (both mentally and physically).
excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit
For me, being healthy isn't a constant uphill battle that involves lots of dieting and time at the gym. It's just the ridiculously easy act of doing the same thing over and over again (such as working out for ten minutes a day or eating at least three servings of vegetables per day) until it becomes a habit.

We are what we repeatedly do.
what a healthy person looks
like to me:
➊ in a stable emotional and mental state
➋ a plant-based diet 
➌ reguraly exercising (both mind and body)
➍ with a strong willpower
