We all have grown up listening the phrase “Health is Wealth”
But, But, But!!!!!
Just think again, now do we really remember this? Well! The answer is a Big NO. Ask yourself why? And the answer is “Lifestyle”. We have adopted the lifestyle in which we love enjoying, partying, outing, hanging out with friends etc etc, even we all love doing this so, rather I would say we should do it to balance our corporate, personal & professional stress.
But our health should be our priority. Importance of word ‘Balance’ should be applied appropriately in every aspect. Likewise to balance the Lifestyle and Health is equally important.
