What is Healthy Living?
To many, being healthy simply means a lack of illness along with being physically fit. But there's more to it than just physical well-being. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Health is a complete state of physical, mental, and social well-being. The actual definition of Healthy Living is the steps, actions and strategies one puts in place to achieve optimum health. It's about taking responsibility and making smart, healthy choices for today and for your future. Healthy eating habits, physical fitness, emotional wellness, spiritual wellness and prevention are all a part of a healthy lifestyle. Since Health and Healthy Living are all inclusive, meaning all aspects of an individual must work in harmony to achieve complete wellness, your lifestyle and choices need to balance each aspect equally.
- Physical Health requires good nutrition, beneficial exercise, adequate rest and proper stress management.
- Mental Health requires self-supportive attitudes, positive thinking and a positive self-image.
- Spiritual Health requires inner calmness, openness to your creativity, and trust in your inner knowing.
