When you’re at your best health, you’re more likely to be at your best quality of life.
Health is another way to measure progress in managing your weight. For many people, even small improvements in body weight can lead to better health.
The World Health Organization states that “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
Wellness is about improving quality of life, health, and well being. This helps us work, create, make decisions, and build the lives we dream of. Wellness also helps us connect with each other and contribute to our families and communities.
What words would you use to describe what health means to you?
If writing doesn’t work for you, think about other ways you might explore and express your thoughts and feelings, such as drawing, painting, or cutting images out of a magazine to create a poster that reflect what health means to you.
