    Of course, I would rather be healthy! Because what would I do If I had a lot of money, but I don't have a healthy body to spend and enjoy all of this money? It would be all useless. Unlike, having a healthy body where I can work and provide for myself that can later on (maybe) lead to a wealthy life if I do my best. Because after all, being healthy is also being rich. Not by money, but by the energy that can totally bring you happiness in life.

    It's easy. I will choose to be healthy so I can be rich. In order for us to be rich is that, we should have a healthy body. If we are healthy, we can do a lot of things in work or on our business and it can lead us to richer life.

    I would rather be healthy than to be rich. What's the use of being rich if you spend all your money for medicines and for maintainance of your health just to avoid sickness. I would choose being healthy and happy.

    I would rather be healthy. Being healthy means I have life, and with life I can make a living, including becoming rich. Ok, think of it this way, would you rather have cancer coupled with Mr. Bill Gates riches, or simply remain poor but with excellent health. With riches, one can easily just work hard and attain them, but the case is very different with health. So, good health is a prerequisite to a happy life, but the same is not true for riches.

    Health is wealth. You can do everything and anything if you are healthy. What's the use of money if it will all just go to your medication, you cannot enjoy life that way.

    I would definitely choose being healthy than being rich. "Health is wealth" is the famous quote that I can relate with. One's health is already his wealth, a wealth that can't be stolen by anyone else. If I am healthy in all aspects of my life which includes the physical , mental, social and emotional aspects I can do great things which sick person can't. Besides, all riches will be in vain if a person losses his health.

    I'm telling you, money can't make you healthy. I have been working for almost 5 years now in a medical institution, and those rich people who are not health conscious, they always get sick and sometimes, they have this complicated diseases. It's better to invest in your health rather than investing more to you wallet. You can never pay someone to make yourself healthy, It's a personal effort that everyone of us should make.

    Health is wealth. If you are healthy you don't need to spend so much money on curing and preventing such diseases. Having a healthy body is a treasure. Having no worries and able to go freely to fulfill your desires and happiness are the ones necessary for me.

    I believe that it goes hand in hand, you can be rich and healthy. What's the use of being rich if you're not healthy physically, the money will just be spent on your medical expenses. Rich can also mean -- rich in material things, spiritually, mentally and emotionally, same goes when it comes to being healthy, this is vast and wide - Health covers not just physical health but also being healthy emotionally, spiritually and mentally. You may be healthy physically but you are drained with your financial status and it will affect you emotionally, spiritually and mentally and will make you unhealthy still. It's good to cover both for your well being.

    I rather choose to be healthy when you are healthy you'll feel happy than you are rich, then you feel unwell how you'll enjoy the money and be with your friends and familiy. if your health condition has threat.

    Its definitely health because if i am alive and well i can earn, even a little and be happy about it. but if i am wealthy with no health, what will be the use of all the money if i need to spend the whole day lying on a bed. That is why Ralph waldo Emerson said - The first wealth is health.

    definitely health. You can have all the money in the world, but you definitely won't be happy without health.

    Health all day long. Money doesn't mean anything if your health is bad and you cant enjoy your money. Money can't buy you health but if you health then you will live a good life and make enough money to get by

    I would rather be healthy than rich because a healthy mind and a healthy body will make your life more meaningful. And a meaningful life is full of enjoyment and happiness. Money can't buy happiness.

    Heath is wealth. Healthy people can generate more income and productivity in life. Your health brings more joy and happiness to you and your family.
  21. I would rather be healthy because health is wealth. Whether you are rich if you are not healthy all of your money will put in all hospital bills or medicines.

    Of course i rather be healthy. How can you used your money if you are not healthy. So keeping our body healthy is important than making a lot of money. You cannot use your money if you are already death.

    I'd rather be healthy than to be rich because even you are rich if you are sick how can you enjoy your wealth? there is no way but if you have a good health you can work hard to be rich. And as the good philosopher said, "It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold or silver".

    I would rather be healthy because our wealth is in our health. If we maintain a healthy lifestyle everything will follow, we can work freely, earn and save because we are physically fit to do tasks. Being rich will follow!

    To be rich is the most dream of every person. But how could you enjoy something worth millions if your health suffers? I've been experienced with having a family member who had chronic kidney disease. Sessions, medicine and the emotional breakdown of the patient and the saved money from working too much to be rich starts to be gone as quick as possible. Money can be earned to feel rich but healthy can enjoy little things even you are not rich, So I will always choose being healthy than rich.

    I would prefer to be rich. At that point I could purchase my wellbeing. That sounds shallow yet it's valid. What is the purpose of being solid in the event that you need to live pitiably? I would prefer to appreciate the better things of life as a solid individual however since I was approached to pick one I picked rich.

    I choose to be healthy than rich. I believe that money can be earn when you're in good shape and don't have any problems when it comes to your health. It don't matter how rich you are if you can't enjoy because you're too sick to travel, eat everything you want and anything that you can think of doing with it.

    Health is important as it matters to your life largely. A good health condition would give you many advantages than wealth. ... But with a good health, you would feel contented. Health matters especially when compared to wealth, health would impact your life in every aspect.

    Being healthy, should be top priority for all of us. It is a blessing, but we cannot buy or share health with each other. Each of us should be inclined to ensure that we do the necessaries to achieve and maintain health. Riches on the other hand, if desired, will come after and will be enjoyed when we are healthy.

    Coming from a person who was sick almost half of his life, I'd rather be Rich. Why, wealth can prolong life and improve life. If ever I would be strapped in a wheel chair for the rest my life and i'm wealthy i'd have a robotic wheel chair that can climb stairs, steer properly, cross uneven terrain etc... This way i'd still be able to enjoy life or what's left of it to the fullest with the people that I care about and vice versa
