Quotes are one too many online, but famous quotes that are unique, trending and significant may not be readily available. Below are some health and well-being quotes that could guide you in maintaining good health as you embark on your life’s journey.
- A quotation by the great philosopher, Buddha states:
“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”
This quote clearly establishes the vital connection of a healthy mind and a healthy body. If your body is sick, your cognitive abilities suffer, as well. This is because the neurons are nourished by the organ-system in your body.
When there is insufficient oxygen because of anemia, the brain cells suffer and your mental capability is significantly reduced.
Likewise, when you have respiratory problems, your brain cells suffer too because they would not be obtaining sufficient nourishment and essential nutrients.
- Another health quotation is from another philosopher, Virgil, who declared that:
“The greatest wealth is health.”
This is a popular quotation, which is observed by everyone. A person can lose all that he has but still would be considered wealthy if he is healthy. This is because when a person gets sick, not even her wealth would matter. In fact, all her wealth would be spent until he recuperates and become healthy again. How can a person enjoy his wealth when he is bed-ridden?
- A quotation by Benjamin Franklin has been adapted and is being by health buffs all over the world:
“Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy wealthy and wise”
Waking up early in the morning would set your physiologic clock active for the rest of the day. Sleeping early would, also, allow your body sufficient rest and recharging. The body needs to recharge and rest for at least 8 hours. Within these 8 hours, hormones, such as Growth Hormones, are released into the bloodstream for cell growth; physiologic processes slow down so that the body could re-charge. Muscles rest and relax, respiration decreases, and mental activities are at their minimum. These would allow the body and mind to ‘recharge.’
- Mark Twain, a renowned author, said this about health.
“The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not.”
The quotation is true. Most of the delicious and enticing foods today are ‘poisons.’ They are not good for the body. Cakes, chocolates, wine, meat, and other mouth-water dishes oftentimes contain dangerous lipid substances, toxins, and high-calorie-foods.
Vegetables, which are considered bland foods, are healthy foods because they contain anti-toxins, phytochemicals, and are low in calories. Fruits are also healthy foods because, just like vegetables, they could provide important minerals, vitamins, and essential nutrients to the body. To maintain your health, you have to eat the appropriate amount of proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids.
These famous quotes can help you maintain your health and well-being. So you could enjoy your life.
