Health is a blessing to all of us. Everyone wants to stay healthy and fit to keep doing the daily activities. No one wants to get sick. Sickness is very hard to handle for some people even if they get a mild cold. Most of the people who get sick don’t go out to work, to study, to meet their friends, to do chores at home. They feel as if they cannot do anything just because they are sick. It sticks in their minds that they are sick, and they are unable to do anything. People who go to gym or walk or take yoga classes or any productive and healthy activity would not go there when they are sick. It makes them sicker when they stop doing what their daily routine was. It sure needs some rest when you are sick, but normal sickness doesn’t mean that you should go on bed rest. It is healthy to go out and keep your routine balanced with proper rest and medication to keep yourself healthy and fit. Mental health is necessary even when you are physically sick. It keeps your optimism about health and many other things.
