Is there any cost involved in maintaining health?In Hindi language, there is an established saying - 'Pehla Sukh Nirogi Kaya' which literally means that the 'first and foremost cause of happiness for humans is good health or fit body'. In English language also it is said that 'Health is Wealth'.
However, when we talk about maintaining health, the people start talking about joining a gymnasium, buying expensive tracksuit and sports shoes for walking/jogging or buying imported variety of treadmill etc. People also talk about eating expensive food like quinoa, oatmeal mixed with chia seeds and flax seeds, soaked and peeled almond and what not.
In this connection my simple question is - whether maintaining health essentially involves higher cost?
