Health, Lifestyle and Wellbeing?

A few definitions:

  • Health: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” (WHO Definition)
  • Lifestyle: “someone’s way of living; the things that a person or particular group of people usually do” (Cambridge Dictionary)
  • Well-being: ” the state of feeling healthy and happy” (Cambridge Dictionary)

Then, let extend the definition of Wellbeing by Chopra: “Overall, Americans are not in a great state of health. One of the contributing factors is that most people link health exclusively to the physical body. While the physical body is important, when we only associate health with our physical body, we fail to recognize other factors that contribute to our overall well-being.

Most ancient cultures pointed to a connection between body, mind, and spirit and recognized that each composed a part of the whole. Now, integrative medicine and health psychology are beginning to recognize that health is influenced not only by the physical body but the spiritual, mental, and emotional bodies, too.

Let’s now have wider vision about well being with six aspects:
