As the saying goes, “good health is above wealth”. We all know the importance of maintaining good health, but in practice not many of us have made a real effort to keep ourselves physically fit and sound. Different kinds of health problems begin to emerge when we reach our fifties, such as insomnia, constipation, hypertension, loss of libido, etc., but we are still too busy to stop and think what is going on in our bodies. Now that we are stepping into our sixties, should we wait any further? While we cannot expect ourselves to be young again and we may get sick from time to time, we can still strive to stay well and cheerful, and to face ageing and death in a positive manner.
Health is undoubtedly the greatest asset of life. What does health mean? The World Health Organization defined health in 1948 as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. As such, health should be construed in a broader sense that apart from having a healthy body, leading a healthy psychological, emotional and social life is equally important.
Indeed, how can we enjoy ourselves at a new stage of life if we are in poor health? In this page we explore the meaning of Healthy Living
, including how to strengthen the body, and how to maintain a proper Life Balance
for the benefits of our body and mind with a view to promoting natural healing and self-organization of the body, thereby minimizing the need for nursing or medical care.
