Finances -the money a person earns and spends.
(a simple definition by Dictionary)
This simple-looking definition is not that simple.

Money indeed helps us to meet our basic needs—
to buy food and shelter & pay for healthcare.

Meeting these needs is essential, and if we don’t have enough money to do so,
our well-being and the well-being of the community suffer greatly.

There are four main ways money affects our wellbeing:
With ample money, we can buy high-quality food and other goods, services that improve health.

Managing on a low income is stressful.
Comparing oneself to others and feeling at the bottom of the social ladder can be distressing,
which can lead to biochemical changes in the body, eventually causing ill health.

For various reasons, people on low incomes are more likely to adopt unhealthy behaviors
– smoking, drinking and eating cheap quality/low-priced processed junk food.

Cause and effect (poor health leads to low income):
Health may affect income by preventing people from taking paid employment.
Childhood health may also affect educational outcomes, limiting job opportunities and potential earnings.

Yes, money can buy everything in the material world, that’s true but,
can money buy us peace of mind & a healthy relationship?

“Happiness, not gold or prestige, is the ultimate currency.”
—Tal Ben-Shahar

Please do not postpone the meaningful things.
Tomorrow we will be happy; once we get the house or gather more money,
more power, more things, and more gadgets.

Tomorrow we will love; today, there is no time.
But tomorrow never comes!
