The Importance of Healthy Lifestyle
Health, as defined by the World Health Organization, is a condition of full physical, mental and emotional well being and not just the absence of illness and infirmity. A number of definitions have also been applied to it over the years. For some people health means healthy food, clean clothes, regular exercise and time to relax. For others health is spiritual or religious in nature. Still others consider it to be the quality of life that one is led to by living well.
The personal well-being is the sum total of your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Your physical health status is influenced by your health: your eating habits, your fitness level and your relationships. Your mental health status is influenced by your thoughts and emotions such as your optimism and pessimism, your stress levels and your motivation towards everything you do.
In order to have a healthy life, you must take care of yourself mentally as well as physically. Both your well-being and your physical health depends on the kind of health you have. A balanced and a healthy life is a path to happiness and fulfillment. In order to live a healthy life full of physical as well as spiritual wellness, you must adopt a lifestyle that includes regular exercise, good nutrition, proper diet, healthy lifestyle habits, sleep well and have open and honest communication with your close relatives and friends.
