How do you define health?

The World Health Organization provided a definition nearly 70 years ago that has stood the test of time!

What’s your definition?

  • Health is the absence of any disease or impairment?
  • Health is a state that allows individuals to adequately cope with all demands of daily life?
  • Health is a state of balance, an equilibrium that individuals establish within themselves and between themselves and their social and physical environment?

Here’s how WHO defined it in 1948.

“HEALTH IS A STATE OF COMPLETE PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND SOCIAL WELL-BEING AND NOT MERELY THE ABSENCE OF DISEASE AND INFIRMITY”

WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION – 1948

Be Healthy! Be Happy! Power your path to happiness.
