We know the proverb, “A sound mind in a sound body”. In order to keep the body healthy, we need to keep the mind sound. Physical exercise keeps us fit. There are different kinds of physical exercises. We may walk a kilometre or two every day. We may take some yogic exercises. At the same, games and sports are very useful for good health.
Cleanliness is essential for better health. Without cleanliness, it is very difficult to maintain proper health. We should clear our house and the surrounding areas every day. Every day, we should bath twice, in the morning and in the evening. After eating food, we should clean our hands with soap. Various types of diseases erupt from unclean surroundings. We should always throw the garbage in the dustbin. A disease-free body is a healthy body, and cleanliness is the key to a healthy life.
Some rules of hygiene
We must know some simple rules. Our house must be airy and sunny. Apart from all this, we must form good habits. We should keep ourselves free from cares and anxieties. Early rising is equally necessary for better health. So we must try to keep fit.
Health is a great treasure. It is the highest blessing. It is the source of all happiness. Money can’t buy happiness. Happiness is priceless and not dependent upon the wealth of a person. Good health, however, contribute to the emotional well-being and happiness of a person. Even with limited income, a person with sound health can lead a happy and enjoyable life. You enjoy neither food nor the world.
Even spending time joyfully becomes a big problem. A healthy person (whether rich or poor) lives more happy and peaceful life than any rich person having a diseased body.
Health is not merely the absence of disease and infirmity but a state of complete physical, social and mental well being. Health is thus a level of functional efficiency of living beings and the general condition of a person’s mind, body and spirit, meaning it is free illness, injury and pain. If you are strong and healthy you can be a shining example to others and teach them how to achieve vibrant health.
In order to get good health, people should follow a healthy lifestyle. People who are not involved in these may suffer a range of health disorders like overweight, high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, kidney problems, liver disorders and so many. An unhealthy body gets tired very easily and a tired body easily loses motivation and self-confidence.
