      The definition of health is no longer limited to physical health; it has expanded to include physical, mental, and social health. This article will explore the new definition of health and how to achieve overall wellness in the modern world.

      Physical Health

      Physical health is the foundation of good health. It includes diet, exercise and sleep. Diet should be balanced and include adequate protein, carbohydrates and fats. Exercise should be regular, including aerobic exercise and strength training. Sleep should be adequate, at least 7 hours per night.

      Physical and mental health

      Physical and mental health is a complement to physical health. It includes mental health and emotional health. Mental health refers to a person’s state of mind and emotions, including self-esteem, self-confidence and self-perception. Emotional health refers to a person’s emotional state, including emotional expression and emotional management.

      Social Health

      Social health refers to a person’s relationships with others. It includes family, friends and community. Social health can be achieved by building healthy relationships. This can be achieved by participating in social activities, volunteering and joining social groups.
