Health is the Ultimate Wealth

People across the world spend a huge chunk of their income on health-related issues. Most of them are not interested in taking precautions for good health but are ready to jump on each remedy they discover after catching diseases. We come across many new ailments in our lifetime and the number keeps on increasing with each passing day. Scary as it sounds, I think it’s advisable to become health-educated than to spend and repent later. Healthy individual leads a happy, content life and handles stress better than others. There are many misconceptions about the idea of health. Most of us have the opinion that health is exclusively physical fitness. The problem begins here.

WHO defined health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

We infer from this definition that physical fitness is important but mental health and social behaviour also affect our well-being to a great extent. The infographics shown below gives suggestions to stay physically fit. These are really good tips for a healthy lifestyle. Add to it the flavour of social and mental health. These are the support pillars that boost our physical fitness to exist longer and brimming with joy.

The concept of health has been changed in the last few years. Experts give as much importance to mental condition and social behaviour as to physical fitness. There’s a revolution in the healthcare system where new ideas are changing the world for the better. Need is to spread the word about the significance of mental and social abilities.

๐ŸžSo, what defines a healthy person?
Every generation is different from the preceding one and the big change we observe in our generation is the increased mental stress and troubled social behaviour. These conditions might have not troubled our predecessors to this extent. The need to draw boundaries for social and mental health didn’t exist to such a considerable degree; hence the definition of health was limited to physical well-being.

Let’s define Health

๐Ÿž Health has a vast meaning including physical, mental and social soundness. A person with all these abilities is considered a healthy human. See, it’s time that has changed the concept of health and we don’t know if this definition stands true in the coming years.

๐Ÿž Not falling ill is healthy. Equally important is the speed of recovering from the illness. Diseases strike all but the magnitude of impact differs from individual to individual. A healthy person has good immunity that helps him to bounce back to normal life after falling sick.

๐Ÿž Health acts as an everyday resource for us to lead a great life. Work on it and wake up every day to happy and optimistic energy. Save your health.

๐Ÿž What are the factors that influence our health?

– lifestyle

– The physical environment

– The social and economic environment

– The person’s individual characteristics and behaviour

– Genetics

– Gender

๐Ÿž There are so many aspects of health that we can’t blame a person for having bad health or praise another for having good health. Some of these factors are beyond the control of a person. We can’t do much about the social and economic conditions. It’s not in our control to be born in a healthy or rich family; our social and financial structure depends on it. Gender, male or female suffers from different diseases; we can’t control.

๐Ÿž Numerous factors deciding our health and many of them can’t be regulated by us. But, there are still many, we can manage wisely for a better lifestyle. Our happiness largely depends on our health. A healthy person lives life fully and is a valuable asset to society.

Adopt a Healthy Lifestyle

๐Ÿต Eat nutritious food and minimise white sugar, white flour, oil-ghee-butter, alcohol, stale, processed, packaged food. Take every step to improve your food intake. Before putting anything in the mouth, realize that it is going to decide your tomorrow.

๐Ÿต Exercise faithfully. Be it running, yoga, gym or some kind of sport; put your efforts to get supreme benefits.

๐Ÿต Don’t miss your prescribed water intake.
It keeps the body functioning smoothly. Setting up a reminder to drink water after regular intervals does work.

๐Ÿต When in stress, try to reach out for solutions. There’s nothing that can be solved with careful planning and good support. Discuss your condition with near ones, your family or friends.

๐Ÿต Socialise. Interact with the people around you. You are one of them. They too face problems and interaction will give you a peek into how they manage their crisis.

Remember, health is the ultimate wealth.

Morning Jog- My Way!

With my running shoes on and mobile phone off, I’m set for a morning jog. Favourable weather with cool breeze is surely some inspiration. But the most inspiring are the sharp gazes and the wagging tongues of ‘conspiring women’ in my area. I’m not very fat, nor very lean. Have a tendency to put on when irresistible indulgences take control over me.

Pause.

As a responsible grown up member of my family, it’s my duty to keep my weight under control and fitness under scan. The over-indulgences, the cynical freedom to eat-whatever-you-want-to are not meant for me. Well.. at least it looks good in writing;)

“There are many, many like me” – I give assurance to myself.

Coming back to the Jog.

After witnessing quite many cases of transformation I persuaded myself to take to jogging. An additional incentive is to give myself a valid excuse to enjoy second helping when the food is exotic;)

Only fourth day to The Jog and my partner-in-jog is nowhere to be seen!
This is what I call betrayal!!
When she and I decided to start The Jog, we signed the “agreement” that if any of us is not coming for The Jog, she should inform the other person in advance.. I called her. And realized that she’s not up yet. I should better continue with the ritual, I started off.
Happy Feet.

Cool breeze and favourable weather. My feet and especially the mind are getting the necessary fuel to continue the rather painful session. I’m keeping myself motivated with thoughts of miraculous transformations. And the sumptuous foods with ‘allowed’ label once I dodge the weight limit.
