Introduction: (Introduce the topic, give your OPINION while MENTIONING reasons supporting your opinion. EXPLAIN those reason in the body.)
In the age of consumerism and materialism, most people believe that a quality life refers to the availability of latest gadgets and machines. They believe that humans should endeavor more to earn money in order to purchase these products. I, on the other hand, think that time is much more important than money to lead a quality life. Free time allows us not only to follow our hobbies, which bring happiness but also spend time with friends and family and stay healthy.
Body Paragraph 1: (Reason 1: follow our hobbies)
Research has proven that happiness refers the ability to carry out the activities a person loves the most. When we are forced to work for money and have little time to follow our hobbies, we do not enjoy our life even if we have all the material possessions. Consequently, many corporate houses such as Google have allowed their employees to spend at least 15 percent of their work time exploring their hobbies. This not only adds quality to their lives but also increases their productivity.
Body Paragraph 2: (Reason 2: Spend time with friends and family)
Moreover, biologically humans are meant to earn money and collect possessions. We are social animals and spending time with our loved ones makes us happy. Free time allows us to regularly meet our near and dear ones and share our pains and happiness with each other. Furthermore, availability of time allows us the luxury of meditating and exercising. We do not need a luxury car as much as we need a healthy body and a sound mind to lead a quality life. In a rat race to earn more money, we often compromise our health and, unfortunately, lead an unhealthy life full of diseases. No amount of money can give us more happiness than a healthy body.
Conclusion: (Conclude the essay with FUTURE and IMPACT)
In conclusion, humans have evolved as a nature loving social animal, which is more comfortable laughing and playing with fellow humans than sitting alone in a luxurious sea side villa. To lead a quality life governments and companies must understand that beyond basic needs money neither motivates us nor makes our life happier.
