The definition of the word Health relates to the physical, mental, and social well-being of an individual.
According to the World Health Organization, the wellness of a human being is not merely the absence of disease and infirmity”.
The meaning of term health is a variety of definitions that have been used for different purposes over time.
Health can be promoted by encouraging healthful activities, such as regular physical exercise and adequate sleep, and by reducing or avoiding unhealthful activities or situations, such as smoking or excessive stress. Some factors affecting health are due to individual choices, such as whether to engage in high-risk behavior, while others are due to structural causes, such as whether the society is arranged in a way that makes it easier or harder for people to get necessary healthcare services. Still, other factors are beyond both individual and group choices, such as genetic disorders.
