Individuals have different opinions towards money and time, some people believe that money is worth more than time and others value time more than money. Prioritising each has its own merits and demerits, while I concur that having a right balance between the two is required.
On the one hand, people who spend more time earning want to give a luxurious life to their family and relatives. They believe that luxuries and lavish lifestyle is their stature and gives them an upper edge in the society. Due to the ever increasing craze for materialistic things people tend to give less time to their families and social relationships and have become extremely workaholic. To illustrate this, people nowadays want to spend more on their child’s education even if it means donating a lump sum amount of money for their admissions. Also the more workaholic you are, the greater are the health problems that you experience. Therefore, more people from corporates report health issues such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
On the other hand, there are people who believe that time is crucial and must be spent with family and friends. These individuals wouldn’t mind trading a job that requires them to shift city for staying with their family. They consider time as an equaliser and prefer to enjoy with their loved ones over their tight work schedule. Furthermore, they think that living a healthier life is more crucial and thus, they find time to indulge themselves in the physical exercises or pursue a passion they’ve always wanted to follow.
To conclude, people should maintain a balanced life between work and leisure. The time once gone never returns back and therefore, to have a sedentary lifestyle time must be judiciously planned for doing things that we love along with focusing on financial stability.
