health - A State of Mind?

Health, as defined by the World Health assosication (Who) at its inception in 1948, is "a state of perfect physical, mental, and communal well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." Of course, this definition may or may not part up to what health entails in reality. But, for broad, general understanding, this definition will suit admirably. The term "health" here is taken as to refer to "good health".

Health can be grouped into three main categories:


Physical health

Most citizen assume that a someone is completely healthy if he is physically healthy, though this is far from the truth. A someone is said to be physically healthy when he has enough bodily exercise, a good diet which supplies the required nutrition and also enough rest. The bodily health of a someone varies according to location, climate, heredity and other factors. bodily health, or rather the lack of it, has become a major qoute for humanity over the world.

Mental Health

Mental health is related intimately to communal well being. When a someone is able to cope with all the stresses of life, is productive, is able to apply himself to the best of his capability and has a industrialized sense of self esteem, he can be referred to as mentally healthy.

Because of the fast paced lifestyle of today, a far greater number of citizen are facing thinking health challenges than ever before.

Social well being

When a someone has built strong relationships within the community, he enjoys emotional and thinking support. This sustain theory fosters a feeling a well being, and contributes to his thinking health. If a someone feels he belongs, he experiences communal well being.

Only a combination of constant bodily health, thinking health and communal well being can ensure that a someone becomes and remains healthy.
