Role of health and health education in life
Author(s): Hanish Guretia
Health is a state of physical, mental, emotional and social well-being. Good health enables people to enjoy life and to have the opportunity to achieve the goals they have set for themselves. The real purpose of health is to develop and maintain vigour and vitality, to acquire interests and habits in ways of living that are wholesome, and to meet the demands put upon the individual efficiently, with energy and satisfaction. The concept of health has been very appropriately summed up by J. F. Williams, “Health is that quality of life that enables an individual to live most and serve best.” Health can be achieved, maintained and improved by supplying the basic physical, mental, emotional and social needs in proper proportion. In fact health is the key to education, success, good citizenship and a happy life. Now a days health and its maintenance is being considered as a major social investment and it is being felt that health involves individual, state and international responsibility.
