Sunday Poser # 102

Welcome back to another Sunday Poser

This week my question is;

What do you think is more important; health or money?

Taking things at face value, I’d say that being healthy is more important. Yet being poor is no picnic either.

Some may argue that with money we can buy the best healthcare available, look after our health with the best diet there is, and afford to go the best specialists too.

If we had good health, we don’t need to money to spend on it and can work hard to earn the said money we need to have a good life. All said, I’d personally prefer to have both or if we can’t have both, a little of health and money each.

What are your thoughts on this matter; What is more important, money or health?

Please share your thoughts in the comments section or you can write your own post and link it to this one so that I can find it.

As usual, thanks of visiting and reading.

  1. If I were poor and not healthy, that would truly suck, especially how the US Healthcare system treats those who are without insurance. But if I were wealthy, being unhealthy would buy me good healthcare. At the very least, it’d be a more comfortable illness. So I opt for being healthy, and if I’m lucky, wealthy too! 😉 lol

  2. I think this is difficult to answer. There are such varying degrees of health. Do I have allergies, chronic pain, or am I an invalid? If I have a lot of money, but must live with a few little sniffles, I’m okay with that!

  3. I choose health for a reason that, Good Health is the state of being physically, mentally and emotionally well and if these three are fine then it leads to a productive life and can able to make money.

    1. Thanks Jeff! You’re right, both are important for us. Being 100% healthy all through life isn’t humanly possible so one should have some money for maintaining the health we do have. 💖😍

  4. I think most people will want wealth until they lose their health. We lost a very good friend last November who owned more than 300 rental units. He was in his early 60s and contracted Valley Fever. He was feeling sick for several weeks and then died on a ventilator in the hospital. I’m sure he would have traded his wealth for his health.

    1. Yes, EA I have no doubt about that. One can have too much money that often stands in the way of being healthy too. People get engrossed in earning money and forget about maintaining their health. Thanks for sharing 👍🏼🙏🏼

  5. Health, but I’d like to determine what it means myself. For example, I wouldn’t want a cure for my disabilities or be somehow relieved of my need for long-term care. In this country, where basic health insurance is mandatory, I don’t think if I had all the money I’d be able to afford better life-prolonging treatment if I suffered cancer or something like that. Then again, if I were very wealthy, I would be able to hire my own carers and live with my husband again. I’m not sure that’s what either of us (my husband or me) want though.

  6. There are small changes we can do to our everyday lifestyle to stay healthy while we are making money. Between the two, I will always prioritise health over money. If we are physically and mentally healthy only then we can make money. 💪🙂

  7. You read my mind. I instantly thought health, but with money health can more easily be attained and maintained. Unfortunately most healthy foods are more pricey then their junk food counter part.
