What is your definition of "Healthy"
We always hear of someone or something that is "Healthy"...and "healthy" is sooooo BROAD. I define it to be: Having an understanding of how YOUR body functions and responds to stimuli via diet or exercise. But that's just me... what does it mean to you... is there a "correct" answer??? We'll see... = )
I define the term "healthy" much broader, making it thus even more confusing. I believe that 'being healthy' is more a state of mind than of body. I have a client with MS who describes herself as healthy. And I wholeheartedly agree.
About 20 years ago, I was in the hospital with pneumonia. It was one of those nasty bugs that came out of nowhere. I had been fighting fit one day and was in a hospital bed the next. Yet, I would broadcast (as soon as I had my wits about me again) to all the nurses that I was the healthiest person in their hospital.
I think Wellness is a much better concept than healthy and the direction that "healthy" is actually going in the fitness industry.
Wellness and the Wellness Wheel are much more encompassing of our daily lives than just being healthy.
