Do you think you are healthy or unhealthy? How do you define health?
According to the World Health Organization, "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely an absence of disease and infirmity."
In the past, I focused my attention on my physical health but neglected my mental and social health.
Alongside heart disease and traffic accidents, depression is one of the greatest health conditions affecting society. Mental health is one of the most neglected areas today. What do you do for your mental health?
And are you socially healthy? Do you contribute to the health of society through positive relationships and social activities?
Health needs to be looked at holistically. All three areas, physical, mental and social, must be attended to if we want to be healthy.
So how do we do it?...
"What's important is a healthy mind. We lead our bodies with our minds. A healthy, flexible mind that can actively manage the health of the body, even as it accepts bodily realities dispassionately: this is the key to health." - Il Chi Lee, Living Tao
