I am not "wealthy" financially by any means, but I totally get this quote. Now that I have been eating better foods (giving my body the proper fuel that it needs) & exercising more consistently, I feel so much better. It's also a huge mood booster.
By contrast, if you feel terrible all the time, you not only feel poor in the traditional sense, but that's all you can think about -- how bad you feel -- how life would be so much better if you felt well. The richness & satisfaction of your life has ebbed away when you suffer from poor health. Unfortunately, there are some things that just can't be overcome & we have to learn to deal with those in other ways, but I want to deal with those on my own terms. I want to feel my best so that I can better deal with the things about my health that I can't control. Does that make sense? I still haven't finished my coffee yet.
Since I have been practicing better health habits, I get sick much less often than I used to. That's also a plus.
Good health is our true wealth. Money may be tight for you & me, but if we feel better, I think we deal with those circumstances much better. At least I do.
Blessings to you!!
