What is health for you, in your life and living?

What is healthWhat is health? According to World Health Organization (WHO) “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” It was written 1948 and I find it really beautiful!

So what is health to you? If you have had any kind of health problem you know how much it impacts your life.  It could be some kind of pain or a rash. Some diagnosed chronic disease like diabetes or the fatal, slow, grinding kind, like MS. It’s enough to get the flu or twist an ankle to realize what is most important to any human; to stay in good health!

It is sad to se how very few live under the conditions stated by WHO. So many in our world might have a reasonably good physical health situation but mentally and emotionally it is really bad. If you live under constant stress it will make your skin more sensitive and can trigger skin problems.

How to define what is health when you have a disease? Also medication that is supposed to help for another ailment can give bad side effects. Even when a medication is intended to help, it can brake down at the same time. As with cortisone for eczema or psoriasis. It can take away the itch, but simultaneously it makes the skin thin and sensitive.

To promote healthy skin make sure you take steps to control your situation. Health and nutrition go intimately together. Your body runs on nutrition and when you are facing any health challenge it does require more nutrition. Nutriton can mean a lot of things…  Eat well. Rest enough. Feed your spirit. Hug many. Laugh a lot! 😀

A remarkabel cream for dry an sensitive skin can be found here, full of goodies like shea butter and the fruit of the African baobab tree. It even wards of mosquitos! Give it a chance to help you out!

health to me is ultimately living the best life I can. That means physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, etc.

Like you the WHO definition of health is a good barometer for our own health and well being. I have heard it said many times that without health we have nothing! Having had my share of health challenges in my life I can definately agree. Health is worth focusing on the a vibrant, great future. Thanks for the reminder Stella! 🙂

    For most people health is taken for granted. I have learned through life that there is nothing to take for granted in any sloppy way. Alway be grateful for what you have!

I try to eat balanced meals – whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and protein. I cut out as much processed foods as possible, fast food, and eat as organic as I can. I exercise regularly, drink a lot of water and get fresh air and sun! Health is very important to me.

Great post! I have been drinking more water and eating better. Today I have an appointment for a hydrating facial and will finally be learning more about taking care of my skin. I’ve searched for doctors and even dermatologists in the past, but I’ve never found anyone who was helpful at all. This new place looks extremely promising!

Great post. Our health is really all we have when it comes down to it. Putting ourselves on the list is something that we tend to forget. I especially like the part about laughing more!

    It’s amazing what people put into their bodies and still it does its job! But sooner or later it brakes down, witch often shows early on your skin. It’s lika a barometer! 🙂
