What Does Health Mean to You?

Credit: Curtis Culter

As Led Zeppelin put it, sometimes words have two meanings.

“Health” is defined by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as the condition of being sound in body, mind, or spirit. The World Health Organization defined the term “health” as “a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living. Health is a positive concept emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities.” But what defines “good health?”

A study done by the U.S. National Research Council back in 2013 reported Americans are dying at a younger age and are more likely to be injured or ill than people in other developed countries. But does this show the health status of the United States? As it turns out, “health” really depends on the context and how we really define our own well-being.

Your health can define your physical, mental, and even social state or well-being. This is your resource to sustaining and living a full life. It can also refer to the absence of disease or injury and your own ability to bounce back and recover from illness and other health-related problems.

Having good health can include a number of factors, such as genetics, relationships, education, and the environment. You can bring about good health on your own terms through a healthy diet, plenty of exercise and recuperation for the body and mind, and of course an annual heath screening.
