Health of Body and Health of Mind




What does it really mean to be healthy? If you are fit and can do all your work reasonably well, then does it mean you are healthy? Is fitness health?

Most people equate health with health of body. This is not exactly wrong, because until some years ago, that was the concept and meaning of health that we had in mind. We thought that health of body means that you are healthy. People believed that if you are free from disease, it meant they were healthy.

But, these are old notions. In today’s world, it is not just enough to be free from disease to be healthy. The view has definitely widened.

Today, health has various aspects to it. Experts speak about the physical, the mental, the spiritual and even the social aspect of health. Health is no longer just absence from disease, but you have to be free from any mental, psychological and social disorders too to be counted as healthy.

Think about a criminal. A person who does something against society does so because they are not well in the mind. Though they may not have any disease hounding them, they are definitely not healthy. They need to be cured; and hence even corrective methods used by governments and law agencies are modes of treatment.

There are so many signs of ill-health that parents completely ignore in their growing children. They see things like sickness and disease, but they completely ignore their mental grown and development. A child who lies needs to be corrected. A child who finds happiness in troubling their parents and teachers needs some kind of help. These are not issues of the body; they are issues of the mind. They need to be tackled early on, because like any other disease, they can grow to serious proportions.

In the past, health was something that was individual. If you did not take care of your health, it was only you who suffered. But, with this widened definition for health, the scope has definitely increased. If you don’t take care of your health now, it won’t be just you who suffer. Think about the child whose habits are difficult to control. Such a child probably grows up and becomes a torment to society in some way or the other.

Health and wellness do not mean the same thing as they did a decade ago. In fact, even medical practitioners include various interpersonal and social methods of treatment. It is all a part of a much larger game.

The Effects of Meditation on Your Health

The health of a human being is very crucial, and billions of dollars are spent every year to ensure that the people are healthy. Healthy people are more productive, and a healthy nation is automatically a wealthy one. However, all this money does not need to be spent on health when there are so many other means that do not need even a dime to be effective. Meditation is one of those. However, I must say that people are becoming more and more aware of meditation, and it is becoming more acceptable across the world.
Meditation causes various changes in the different parts of the brain, and these changes bring positive effects on the body tissues and organs. The sphere in the brain that enables one to reason and analyze issues usually pauses and rests when it is time for meditation. This, in turn, makes less adrenaline to be released into the blood, and all the organs become relaxed and they naturally heal from the effects of too much adrenaline. Also, the right signals are sent to the or…

What Is Network Marketing?

Most people do not have the slightest idea what network marketing is, and they have all sorts of perceptions and prejudice about it. However, this article will seek to clarify what network marketing really is.
First and foremost, you need to understand how the chain of manufacturing, supply and demand goes. When the manufacturer makes a commodity, the transporters are used to distribute the goods. The transporters may be the manufacturer’s or may be the distributors. When these goods get to the distributor, they are stored, and wholesalers come for them so that they cam sell the goods to the retailers, who in turn sell the goods to the consumer. Apart from these, other middlemen are involved. The company that makes the commodity has to advertise for it, and that is why your programs are filled with commercial breaks. Also, companies use sales men to promote the commodity to wholesalers and retailers.
