2. What is Health?

Health has got three dimensions and can be depicted by the so called HEALTH TRIANGLE and is defined as physical, mental and social well-being. (See Figure 1)



Health is not a natural gift and it is to be achieved by constant effort. Health cannot be gifted, stored or cannot be stolen. Health cannot be exchanged or borrowed. Healthy status is not a one-time achievement. It is the result of constant effort to keep our body fit and healthy. A healthy person is an asset to society and is liked by everybody. One’s health is not source of hate or jealousy; but one’s ill health is. An unhealthy person is a burden to society and is disliked by others.
