health 1 The Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary defines health as the “state of being physically and mentally health”. An integral part of human life, health and fitness is also a good way to find happiness in life. There are several ways to gain health and fitness.

Firstly, it is our eating habits and secondly sleeping for adequate hours in a day and or finally forms of physical exercises like – swimming, cycling, jogging or yoga.

An unhealthy or unfit human body is prone to several diseases. In the recent past, the concern about health and fitness, especially among young Indians, has increased to a great extent. The mushrooming of health spas, fitness centres, yoga schools are examples of the same. Today’s generation look forward to a healthy lifestyle even after retirement – thus more often they are seen in indulging in fitness activities in order to not only stay fit but also look younger.

Despite such increasing health concerns, a large percentage of the populace tend to neglect their health concerns due to increasing hectic work schedule – where probably a power-point presentation is more important than a mere 30 minutes’ brisk walk in the early morning. But what green appleswe fail to realize is that such hectic schedule, can actually take a severe toll on out health, both – mental and physical.

Here comes the importance of striking a balance. Acquiring good health and maintaining it throughout is not an easy task. It is a result of constant efforts that yields perfect results. But once achieved, you are bound to cherish it all your life. So, cheers to good health and happiness.
