Due to the circumstances, most of us plan to adopt a healthy lifestyle to keep ourselves away from diseases. Still, do we know what a healthy lifestyle means? 

 This article will help you understand health and a healthy lifestyle in detail.   

 What is health?

 The term “health” refers to complete emotional and physical well-being. Healthcare exists to help people maintain this optimal state of health.

  In 1948, the World Health Organization (WHO)Authorized Source defined health with a term that modern management still applies.

 “Health is a state of entire physical, mental, and social well-being and not only the absence of disease or decrepitude.”

In 1986, the WHO Trusted Source made additional clarifications:

“A resource for daily life, not the purpose of living. Health is a positive concept highlighting social and personal resources, as well as physical capabilities.”

The above statements mean that health is a resource to help individuals function in a wider society rather than an end. A healthy lifestyle furnishes the standards to lead a complete life with meaning and purpose.

Types of health

Mental and physical health are likely the two most repeatedly discussed types of health.

However, spiritual, emotional, and financial health also contribute to overall health because we refer to it as well-being. In addition, medical experts have linked these to lower stress levels and enhanced mental and physical well-being.

For example, people with better economic health may worry less about finances and have the means to buy fresh food more regularly. Alike those with sound spiritual health may feel a feeling of calm and purpose that fuels good cognitive health.

Physical health

Physical well-being involves following a healthful lifestyle to lower the risk of disease. Sustaining physical fitness.

Someone with good physical health is likely to have physical functions and processes working at their pinnacle.

It is not only due not only to an absence of disease. Regular exercise, balanced nutrition, and sufficient rest contribute to good health. 

Good physical health contributes to mental health, improving a person’s overall quality of life.

Mental health

Mental health refers to many things, i.e., emotional, social, and psychological well-being. Mental health is as essential as physical health as an active lifestyle.

It is more challenging to describe mental health than physical health because many psychological diagnoses depend on an individual’s perception of their background.

With advancements in testing, however, doctors can now identify some physical signs of some types of mental illness in some tests.

A healthy mental state is not only classified by the absence of depression, anxiety, or another disorder. It furthermore relies on a person’s ability to:

• enjoy the life

• bounce back after hard experiences and adapt to misfortune

• be able to balance the different elements of life, such as household and finances

• feel safe and secure

• achieve their maximum potential

Physical and mental health have powerful connections. 

A mental illness, such as unhappiness or anorexia, can affect body weight and overall function.

It is necessary to approach “health” as an entire rather than as distinct factors because all types of health are linked, and people should seek overall well-being and balance as the keys to good health.

Preserving health

The best way to preserve health is through a healthful lifestyle rather than waiting until a disease or infirmity to address health problems. 

Conclusion

Health is the combination of multiple factors; we should not rely on a few factors but should work on all the factors to get and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Khushi Thapa, Mumbai Uncensored, 21st July 2022:

Ghana officially confirmed two cases of the Marburg virus, a highly contagious disease comparable to Ebola, on Sunday, after two patients who subsequently died tested positive for the virus earlier this month.

On July 10, tests carried out in Ghana revealed positive results; however, the World Health Organization stated that the cases had to be confirmed by a laboratory in Senegal.

Ghana Health Service (GHS) released a statement saying that additional testing at the Institute Pasteur in Dakar, Senegal, “has validated the results.”

Despite the fact that none of the contacts has yet shown any symptoms, GHS is taking steps to lessen the chance of the virus spreading, including isolating all of them.

The Marburg virus has just recently spread to West Africa twice. Guinea reported the region’s first incidence of the virus last year, but no other cases have been found.\

“(Ghanaian) health authorities have responded swiftly, getting a head start preparing for a possible outbreak. This is good because, without immediate and decisive action, Marburg can easily get out of hand,” said Matshidiso Moeti, WHO Regional Director for Africa.

Wimbledon 2022 Women Singles Final Highlights: Elena Rybakina defeats Ons Jabeur 3-6, 6-2, 6-2, clinches Maiden Wimbledon Title

Shobit Chandola, Mumbai Uncensored, 16th July 202:

On 9th July, 2022 the Wimbledon got its winner in the Women’s Singles with none other than Russian born Kazak, Elena Rybakina who defeated the Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur with 3-6, 6-2, 6-2. Wimbledon this year, for the first time in a while, witnessed 2 finalists seeking their maiden title. What could be termed as unpredictability is that the fan’s favourite contenders were all eliminated before. While the Record 7 Wimbledon title winner Serena Williams was shocked by H. Tan in  the 1st Round, it was Paula Badosa underperforming in the Round of 16 and  the astonishing defeat of the Former Wimbledon Champion Simona Halep in the Semifinal.That too came from the end of Elena Rybakina who vanquished Simona in straight sets 6-3, 6-3.

As could be seen in the epic thriller, the first set was won by Ons Jabeur whose drop shots and forehand made Rybakina go for many unforced errors. But post conceding the 1st set, Rybakina changed the gear for all the trailing in 1st set and ensured enough aces and volley to make it 6-2 in the 2nd set for 1-1 tie. For the 3rd set, Elena led with 2-0 but got holded by Jabeur to make it 3-2 but outshined Jabeur with a 5-2, finally breaking the latter’s serve in the decider.

Not to forget the incredible journey of Ons Jabeur so far. It was the World No 2 Ons Jabeur who became the first Arab and african women to become the Wimbledon finalist but wasn’t at her best to defeat the 17th seed Elena Rybakina who switched her nationality to Kazakhstan in 2018 (owing to the lack of funding and infrastructure for her game) before representing Russia. Just like Elena who wrote the history as the first kazakh to be claimed as winner in the Wimbledon, it could have been the same to Ons too being the first Arab and African women.Though the losing cause made the Ons emotional, it was her grit, determination and the post match interview which reflected her strong character.

In the Post Match Interview, the Introvert Champion Elena had her say on the Wimbledon title. She stated “I was super nervous before the match, during the match and I’m happy it’s finished, to be honest. Really I have never felt something like this. I want to thank the crowd for the support, it was unbelievable these two weeks,” the 23-year-old said. But also I want to congratulate Ons for a great match and everything you have achieved. I think you are an inspiration for everybody. You have an amazing game. We don’t have someone like this on tour and it is a joy to play against you. I ran so much, I don’t think I need to do fitness anymore”. With this title, Elena became the youngest player to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish since 2011.
