How to Define “Healthy”?
The following is the health definition by WHO (World Health Organization).
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
Being healthy is basic towards happiness, success and harmony for all of us.
Here is the most 5 important things for staying healthy physically and mentally.
1. Eat Well
This is one of the basic needs for us to survive. Eat well means take sufficient nutrition; eat regularly to suit our bodies’ needs. Do not over eat, which will have negative impact on our health. To build a healthy eating habit is a key for staying healthy.
2. Sleep Well
Sleeping is also one of the basic needs for us to survive. Sleep primes the immune system. Sleep well means to sleep enough time to get our body rest and ready to work and enjoy life. Most people need between seven and nine hours of sleep a night. To build and follow a regular sleeping routine is crucial for staying healthy. It is recommended by health experts that to sleep early and get up early is the best way for us to have a healthy lifestyle.
3. Exercise Regularly
Exercise fundamentally changes every system and function in our body. Therefore, it is vital to health. Exercise impacts almost every aspect of health. For example, it can regenerate our brain cells; it also can reduce the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, the risk of developing diabetes. In addition, it can build and maintain healthy muscles, bones, and joints, and reduce depression and anxiety and therefore enhance performance in work.
4. Think Positively
All of our feelings, beliefs and knowledge are based on our internal thoughts consciously and subconsciously. Whether we know it or not, we are in control. We can be positive or negative, enthusiastic or dull, active or passive.
The biggest difference between people is their attitudes. Our present attitudes are habits built from the feedback of parents, society and ourselves, and are maintained by the inner conversations we constantly have with ourselves both consciously and subconsciously.
Positive thinking is a mental attitude that expects good and favorable results. A positive mind anticipates health, happiness, joy, and a successful outcome of every situation and action. A positive thinker is optimistic.
5. Keep developing
By lifelong learning we can constantly learn new things, which empower us to understand ourselves and our surrounding more. By trying different paths in our life, we can experience more and improve in various aspects of our life, we feel fulfillment and joy and happy.
In order to stay healthy physically and mentally, we need eat well, sleep well, exercise regularly, think positively and keep developing. All these five factors have very close relationship and interact with each other. We need achieve the balance of them, which I think is the key to help us towards healthy, happy and successful life.
