How are you feeling today? Alert, ready for action and generally fit and well? Or maybe you are slightly tired and ready for a rest. You could have an illness such as a sore throat, or an injury such as a sprained ankle. Yet in all these cases, you might still be healthy.
MANY KINDS OF HEALTH
Health is far more than simply feeling well. It involves the body’s physical fitness, whether you exercise regularly and how your body copes with activity. Health also involves eating properly and not taking in harmful substances such as tobacco smoke or illegal drugs. Health includes the mind as well as the body. A healthy person’s thoughts and behaviour are fairly normal, they are not greatly worried or under stress, and they do not take big risks. Health also means, for most of the time, not suffering from illness or disease.
