Definition of good health & wellbeing
Being in good health means more than just being free from illness or disease. While being physically healthy is the first step to good health, good mental health and social wellbeing are also necessary. It means that to be in good health, individuals need to take care of their bodies, their minds and emotions, and pay attention to their lifestyles and surroundings.
Put simply, wellbeing can be described as judging life positively and feeling good, developing as a person, being fulfilled and making a contribution to the community.
