If you think about life in a nutshell, what is it that each and every human seeks? Happiness is what the destiny of our life is. As a matter of fact, happiness comes with healthy living and a healthy body. Unlike the beliefs of people who say money is the ultimate happiness, each and everyone knows deep down that a healthy mind resides in a healthy body. Therefore, health should not be compromised any which way. A great philosopher once said, either take out time in your twenties to invest in your body or else take out time in your fifties to visit the hospital. I am sure most of the readers would agree with the saying because no matter what, everyone is suffering from the guilt of not paying enough attention to our personal temple called a body. Having said that, do you believe that you are living a happy healthy life, at all? Before you say a blind yes, think about the long hours you spend lying in front of your smart TV and the double cheese pizza that you eat first thing in the morning. If this makes you happy, let me remind you that this is not happy healthy life but a compromise.
