Health and Wellness

“The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered.
Man! Because he sacrifices his health to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

The word ‘wellness’ is essentially a state of being healthy . Healthy living is a goal, while wellness is the process of achieving it .Physical health is a state in which the physical body is free from diseases while wellness is the overall state of being physically, socially, mentally, spiritually, economically environmentally and occupationally healthy. A person’s wellbeing is largely determined by how they arrange their life to achieve balance and keep their health and fulfilment intact. Wellness is influence general health in a positive way. In fact, people can be healthy and ill at the same time, like someone who exercises compulsively while ignoring relationships, spiritual pursuits, or intellectual pursuits. 


The foundation for a prosperous life is the inside out. Food is medicine, it affects the brain.  We create our thoughts with our food, and our thoughts lead to the world we live in. Documented studies have shown that how you feel and think affect how you feel in your body and create the experiences you have. Better health and productivity at work go hand in hand with the improved bottom line. It is vital for an organization to foster a worksite culture that fosters health and wellness. This boosts employee morale, improves employee lives, and boosts the organization’s performance.”


Observed on April 7th each year, World Health Day is an annual event. The World Health Organization (WHO) hosted the inaugural World Health Day on April 7, 1950, to draw the entire world’s attention to global health. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as “the state of being physically, mentally, and socially well, and not merely being free from disease or infirmity (illness).” According to the World Health Organization, wellness means “the optimal state of fitness and health of individuals and groups.” Wellness is also defined as a “positive attitude toward living.”


Physical health, however, is only one component of wellbeing, which is holistic and multidimensional. It comprises six dimensions that include physical, intellectual, emotional, environmental, social, and spiritual wellness.


Our bodies are incredibly intricate systems made up entirely of living tissues, and a person with a healthy body is in complete harmony with his mind. By keeping this in mind, we can practice the art of health and wellness. Our tissues need nutrition to grow, and the food we eat is directly responsible for supplying those nutrients. As a result we must understand why eating a balanced diet is important. When all the components such as carbohydrates, starch, fat, protein, and vitamins are equal in their proportions ,a meal is considered balanced. Even if something is beneficial for us, eating too much of it can negatively affect our health. Since the balance is disrupted, we eat too much of the same type of food. There are vastly different ways in which wellness manifests itself around the globe, despite wellness being a universal concept.


A variety of things have a role in maintaining healthy health. There are many aspects of health that are equally important. A person cannot be entirely healthy if even one of them is missing.

Constituents of Good Health

Good physical health, you will have a longer life span.

Mental health refers to the psychological and emotional well-being of a person. The mental health of a person impacts their feelings and way of handling situations. We must maintain our mental health by being positive and meditating.

Spiritual health creates a balance between physical, psychological and social aspects of human life. The general definition of spiritual wellness is the search for your life & meaning and purpose, as well as striving for consistency in your values and your actions. A spiritually healthy person has a clear purpose in life and is able to reflect on the meaning of events.

Subsequently, social health and cognitive
health are equally important for the overall well-being of a person. A
person can maintain their social health when they effectively
communicate well with others.
