Since ancient times, health has become a permanent topic of discussion in all ages and is seen as the first need in life. However, what is health and how to correctly understand and grasp the exact meaning of health is a key issue.
There are thousands of definitions of health. The world’s most authoritative health experts have been formally defined by health research after research and demonstration: health refers to a situation in which all three aspects of physical, psychological and social adaptation are good. Not just that there is no illness or physical fitness.
After many years, experts and scholars in health and wellness have once again deepened the concept of health, which includes health, mental health, social well-being and moral health.
Physical health refers to the normal structure and function of the body, and has the self-care ability of life.
It means that individuals can correctly understand themselves, adjust their mentality in time, and make the mentality in good condition to adapt to changes in the outside world.
Good social adaptation
Strong adaptability is an important feature of mental health. People with mental health should be able to maintain good contact with the society and have a clear and correct understanding of the current state of society. There are both lofty ideals and ambitions, and they will not indulge in unrealistic fantasies and extravagance, and focus on the unity of reality and ideals. For all kinds of difficulties and challenges encountered in real life, do not blame others, and use practical and effective methods to solve them. When you find that your ideals and aspirations run counter to social development, you can quickly adjust yourself to be consistent with social development, rather than escaping from reality, and not being self-respecting and arrogant.
It refers to the ability to control one’s own behaviour according to the rules and requirements of social norms, and can contribute to people’s happiness, showing high morality, ideal, morality and discipline.
So, what is the standard of health?
Do our physical conditions and living habits meet health standards?
The result is unsatisfactory. Almost everyone has a life habit that is contrary to health in one way or another, and unwittingly infringes on our health.
Health standards include:
- Energetic, able to cope with daily life and work with ease.
- Being optimistic, positive, and willing to take on tasks without being picky.
- Good at rest and good sleep.
- It has strong adaptability and can adapt to various changes in various environments.
- It has certain resistance to common colds and infectious diseases.
- The weight is appropriate, the shape is well-proportioned, and the ratio of head, arm and hip is coordinated.
- The eyes are bright, the reaction is quick, and the eyelids are not inflamed.
- The teeth are clean, no defects, no pain, normal gum color, no bleeding.
- The hair is shiny and has no dandruff.
- Muscle and skin are elastic and easy to walk.
According to the above health standards, only 15% of people can be regarded as healthy, 15% of people are morbid, most of them are in a state of no disease and not completely healthy, that is to say, the body has no obvious disease state, but the vitality is reduced. A physiological state in which the ability to adapt is reduced to varying degrees, such as fatigue, dizziness, headache, tinnitus, shortness of breath, palpitations, irritability, and the like. This is the “sub-health” state.
