doctor and patient

While our existence depends a lot on our health, we often do things that would hamper our health, and pay little heed to things that would be beneficial to our health.

We focus much of our lives on making money; but if you don’t have a healthy body then you can hardly make money. If you even make the wealth, you need sound health to enjoy it.

10 quotes that would inspire you to take your health seriously:
