What is health?
Before going further, we need to know what health is, so What is health?
Is it a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being? Is it simply the absence of disease or infirmity? Or is health a resource for everyday life rather than the purpose of life? a positive concept, emphasizing social and personal resources as well as physical abilities?
Good health is more difficult to define than poor health (which can be likened to the presence of a disease) because it must convey a more positive concept than the mere absence of disease and there is a variable area between health and illness. Health is clearly a complex and multidimensional concept. Health is ultimately poorly defined and difficult to measure, despite the impressive efforts of epidemiologists, statisticians, social scientists and political economists. The health of each individual is influenced by many factors, including medical care, social situation and choice of behavior.
While it is true to say that health care is the prevention, treatment and management of disease, and the preservation of mental and physical well-being, through the services offered by the medical, nursing and paramedical professions, Health-related behavior is influenced by our own values, determined by education, for example, by experience, by company, by the persuasive power of advertising (often a behavioral force that can be detrimental to health), and by effective health education. Healthy people are able to mobilize all their physical, mental and spiritual resources to improve their chances of survival, to lead happy, fulfilling lives and for the benefit of their dependents and society.
Achieving health and staying healthy is an active process. Natural health is based on the prevention and on the health of our body and our mind. Health involves balancing these aspects in the body through a diet that includes diet, exercise, and emotion regulation. The latter of these is too often ignored when health counselling is given but can have a marked effect on physical well-being.
Every day, it seems, new research shows that some aspects of lifestyle – physical activity, diet, alcohol consumption, etc. – affect health and longevity. Physical fitness is good for physical health and results from regular physical activity, proper diet and diet, and adequate rest for physical recovery.
The field of nutrition also examines foods and dietary supplements that improve performance, promote health and heal or prevent diseases, such as fibrous foods to reduce the risk of colon cancer or vitamin C supplements to strengthen the teeth and gums and improve the immune system. system. When exercising, it is even more important to have a good diet to ensure that the body has the right ratio of macronutrients while providing enough micronutrients; it’s about helping the body in the recovery process after intense exercise.
If you are trying to lose weight by “dieting”, do not call it a diet, First of all, successful dieters do not call what they do by “diet”. Healthy eating and regular physical activity are both important for maintaining a healthy weight. Even educated and educated people sometimes have mistaken ideas about what makes them healthy or healthy, often believing that a daily exercise, regular bowel movements or a specific diet will be enough to they alone to preserve their good health. Despite the ever-changing and ever-changing opinions of medical experts on what is good for us, one aspect of what we eat and drink has always been endorsed by all: a balanced diet.
A balanced diet consists of a mixture of the main varieties of nutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, minerals and vitamins). Good nutrition is just as important, if not more important for health than exercise. If you are concerned about being overweight, you do not need to add the extra stress of the “diet”.
No “low fat this” or “low in carbohydrates”; just eating healthy small portions, with weight loss is a satisfying side effect. Improve your health by eating real food in moderation. (For many reasons, not everyone has easy access to, or incentives to eat, a balanced diet. those who have a balanced diet are healthier than those who do not.)
Exercise is considered important for maintaining fitness and overall health (including healthy weight), building and maintaining healthy bones, muscles and joints, promoting physiological well-being, reducing surgical risks and strengthening the immune system. Aerobic exercises, such as walking, running and swimming, aim to increase cardiovascular endurance and muscle density. Anaerobic exercises, such as weight training or sprinting, increase muscle mass and strength. Proper rest and recovery are as important to your health as exercise, otherwise, the body is in a state of permanent injury and will not improve and adapt well to exercise. Both of the above factors may be compromised by psychological compulsions (eating disorders, such as bulimia nervosa, anorexia and other bulimia), misinformation, lack of organization or lack of motivation.
Ask your doctor or physiotherapist which exercises are best for you. Your doctor and/or physical therapist may recommend specific types of exercises, depending on your particular situation. You can use exercises to stay strong and supple, improve your cardiovascular fitness, extend the range of motion of your joints and reduce your weight. You should never be too busy to exercise. There is always a way to exercise, no matter where you are. Eliminate one or perhaps two elements of your busy schedule to free up time for exercise and “YOU” time. Finding a partner to exercise is a common training strategy.
You may have heard about the benefits of diet and ad nauseam exercise, but you may not know the effect your emotions may have on your physical well-being and even on your longevity. Like physical health, mental health is important at all stages of life. Mental health is the way we think, feel and act to cope with life situations. Prolonged psychological stress can have a negative impact on health, such as a weakening of the immune system.
Children are particularly vulnerable. Caring for and protecting a child’s mental health is an essential part of helping a child become a normal, accepted adult in society. Mental health problems are not a passing phase. Children are more likely to develop mental health problems when certain factors intervene in their life or environment. Mental health problems include depression, bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, schizophrenia and conduct disorders. Do your best to provide your child with a safe and loving home and community, as well as nutritious meals, regular checkups, vaccinations and exercises. Many children experience mental health problems that are real and painful, and they can be serious. Mental health problems affect at least one in five young people at one time. Unfortunately, about two-thirds of all youth with mental health problems are not getting the help they need. Mental health problems can lead to academic failure, substance abuse, family discord, violence or even suicide. A variety of signs may indicate a possible mental health problem at a child or teenager. Talk to your doctor, educational counselor, or other trained mental health professionals to assess if your child has a mental health problem.
Control your emotions. If a driver gets past you on the wrong side or away from a road in front of you, do not get angry with the rage or hoot; You do not hurt anyone other than yourself by increasing your blood pressure. Anger has been associated with heart disease and research has suggested that hardening of the arteries occurs faster in people who score. highly in the tests of hostility and anger. Stay calm in such situations and feel proud to have done so. Rest assured that these aggressive drivers only increase their own blood pressure. Your passengers will be more impressed by your “cool” than by your irascibility.
If you are constantly in a hurry, feel that every second of your life counts, slow down a bit. Yes, every second count, but consider the concept of quality of life. Compare how you feel when you’re in a hurry with how you feel when you’re not. Who feels better? Rushing everywhere increases your stress level.
The body tries to overcome stress by making certain physiological adjustments. Sometime after your slowing down, physiological adjustments and stress symptoms return to normal. If you never slow down, physiological adjustments and symptoms of stress persist. It is this persistence of the body’s answer that counts. You may develop physical, physiological or psychological problems, and may not be able to lead a normal life. Many cases of stress are related in one way or another to money, or rather to its lack. These people have trouble making ends meet or acquiring more material goods. This brings us to our final discussion: the attitude.
Of course, it is always nice to enjoy the fruits of our work. Sometimes, however, it seems that whatever we do, it is not enough to be able to afford this new car or these holidays abroad. So, what do we usually do? We work harder, longer; we increase stress on our minds and bodies; we spend less time with our families and friends; we become more irascible and less sympathetic people.
If you find yourself in this situation, stop for a moment and think: is it worth it? What is the purpose of life? It is surely to be happy. You will probably be happier if you adopt the philosophy that the true quality of life is not found in material things. If you convince yourself that you want less, you need less.
If you require less, you will more easily face life, and you will be happier and healthier. Buddha called it “enlightenment”. Enjoy a “healthy attitude”. Focus on your abilities rather than your disabilities. Be satisfied with what you have, rather than being dissatisfied with what you do not have and that you will probably never have.
And If you simply can not cope with a healthy diet, exercise and emotional control, but actually prefer to eat junk food, be drunk permanently, be constantly stressed and not love them. others, enjoy your life while it lasts, but understand that the compromise is that it will probably not last long. If you accept this voluntarily, you will be happy. The philosophy that it is better to live a short and happy life is better than a long and miserable life.
Personal health or individual is largely subjective. For most individuals and many cultures, however, health is a philosophical and subjective concept, associated with contentment, and often taken for granted when all is well. Evidence that behavioural factors such as diet, physical activity, smoking and stress affect health is overwhelming. Thus, health is maintained and improved not only through advances and the application of the health sciences, but also through intelligent efforts and lifestyle choices of the individual and society. Perhaps the best thing to do for your health is to keep a positive attitude. Optimal health can be defined as a balance between physical, emotional, social, spiritual and intellectual health. Maintain a positive attitude!
