has undergone a lot of changes over the period of human life.

Health is a condition of well-being & more than absence of disease in the following planes ofhealth,
. Physical fitness can be explained as a state where the individual has
little or nopain and is able to do their personal work without discomfort

individual has an acceptable thought pattern system which consists of beliefs which areconstructive, exhibit characters of equality, & are devoid of selfishness

the amount of connected
feeling & affiliation of the individual in a healthy manner with himself/herself, the individual’s
family, & with the society at large

. Environmental stability can be explained as the
role played by the
environment in developing the individual’s health & potential

The environment includes geographic, political, socio-economic, society, etc.

everyindividual should achieve & maintain that they have enough wealth to meet their needs, & alsoare able to contribute in generating wealth for the welfare of the society
