Health refers to all those practices that are hygienic and make one feel that he or he is free from illness or sickness. A feeling of being fit is a state of healthful living, as many say.

Human body is a perfect creation by God. Our body performs many physiological functions, that too, system wise e.g. gastro-intestinal system actively performs functions like ingestion, digestion, metabolism, absorption, etc, our respiratory system helps in inspiration and expiration – breathing and likewise. Its our responsibility to preserve, protect our body from any thing or any condition that deteriorates health maintain hygienic practices like cleanliness, sanitation, etc to protect one’s body from disease.

It is also said that the presence of pathogenic organisms is a state of being unhealthy; a disease/illness state. One must have great concern and awareness of self as a whole. Healthy diet, healthy practices all can contribute greatly to sound health of an individual. Good nutrition, rest and sleep in adequate proportions, balance between one’s work and environment as well as surrounding are all the essentials of a fit & healthy body. Moreover one can add shine to one’s body by practicing Yoga and Meditation in daily life.

Until now, we saw how our body becomes healthy; how we stay healthy but still a body needs something that makes it a sound one – that’s the sound mind.

A sound mind is one that is free of all mental worries and tensions that stays cool, understands the reality and thus maintains equilibrium with his environment.
Ideally, it is very difficult to have a sound mind – perhaps; rarely one would find a sound rarely one would find a sound mind because normal person can have mild stresses and worries of daily life but we cannot consider them unhealthy. However by sound mind, here, we mean that a mind that has a capability to withstand the stresses has coping skills and defense mechanisms and an ability to overcome the troubles.

Therefore it is really very essential to have a sound mind in a sound body. The healthy person, can then, in real sense, be healthy, stay healthy and enjoy their life.
