24 Jul 2014

Health is a dynamic process because it is always changing. We all have times of good health, times of sickness, and maybe even times of serious illness. As our lifestyles change, so does our level of health. 

Those of us who participate in regular physical activity do so partly to improve the current and future level of our health. We strive toward an optimal state of well-being. As our lifestyle improves, our health also improves and will experience less disease and sickness. 

The other components of health (Greenberg, 2004, p.7) that are just important as physical health include the following:

  • Social health: The ability to interact well with people and the environment and to have satisfying personal relationships. 
  • Mental health: The ability to learn and grow intellectual. Life experience as well as more formal structure for example school, university to enhance mental health.
  • Emotional health: The ability to control emotions so that you feel comfortable expressing them and can express them appropriately.
  • Spiritual health: a belief in some unifying force. It different from a person to person but has the concept of faith at its core.

Each day we work toward maximizing our level of health and wellness to live long, full and healthy lives. To pursuit of health, personal growth, improve quality of life relies on living in balance life. To achieve balance we need to care for our mind, body and spirit. 

Wellness is the search for enhanced quality of life, personal growth, and potential through positive lifestyle and attitudes. If we take responsibility for our own health and well-being, we can improve our health on a daily basis. 

If you are healthy, you can do everything and you look very active. Unless you are unhealthy you can not do any activities. If you feel healthy you are able to do any work without tired. Other wise you can't. 

There is a saying that "Health is Wealth". It means if you are healthy you can do you work brilliantly, and you can get good results. That may makes you wealthy also. That's why everyone like to be healthy.
