 SLEEP


Sleep is very essential for your physical health. Sleep is vital to relax your organs and the most
important organ is brain which needs rest to function properly. Key point to note is that our brain
still awakes while we are sleeping but not as active when we are conscious. To be physically
active adults needs at least 8 hours sleep and children needs 8-9 hours’ sleep. Power naps are
equally important as sleep. 10-20 minutes power naps make you fresh and physically and
mentally energetic.


 REST


We all get tired from continuous work, studies, parenting, and playing. So, we need a little break
to relax our eyes, our fatigued muscles, and to relax our minds. How to do it; sit in a peaceful
corner, or in nature and listen to peaceful instrumental music. These are all strategies to give rest
to your body.


 ALCOHOL AND DRUGS


The consumptions of alcohol, drugs and other harmful substances ruins your physical health. It
also manipulates your mind.


 NUTRIENTS


Nutrients are small components of food which helps you to grow healthy. The right intake of
nutrients keeps you away from diseases. There are seven types of nutrients which are pivotal for
your physique.
 Minerals as in nuts and seeds, shellfish, cocoa, tropical fruits, and leafy greens.

way you can prevent yourself from infections. When your body is clean you also feel calm, relax
and fresh.

Emotions play a vital role in your physical and mental health. Emotions can affect your health.
When you feel stressed, anxiety, sadness, and depression you should consult doctors or health
professionals.


2- MENTAL HEALTH


mental health
is as essential as physical health. One should not neglect the mental health. As
asserted by AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION Mental health is a condition of
changes in emotions, thoughts, and personal behavior.
Mental health is about being optimistically active and zestful.
 It is about living a cheerful, happy, and wholesome life.

 It is about to indulge in exercise, eat proper meal and enlarge your social circle, and share
emotions with your family and friends.
 It is about resolve issues and fight challenges in your daily life.
To discuss, learn and research about your mental issues is not something ill. It is about to cure
your sickness. Most of the people do not get proper treatment because negative connotations are
attached to the term mental health and mental illnesses.
Here are some of the major symptoms of mental illness: If you feel depressed and sad and it lasts
more than 2 weeks. If your mood swing instantly changes. If you are sleeping more than enough
or no sleeping at all. If you are isolating yourself from others. And finally, if you are facing
difficulty dealing with real life issues. If you are facing symptoms of mental illness then you
should consult to professional mental healthcare doctors and councilors.


3- SOCIAL HEALTH


It is the final health triangle. Social health is about how you interact and adapt in your community.
It has nothing to do with your functioning of the body. Social health can also be defined as, to have
responsibility, collaboration, respect, and courtesy. Research studies discussed about the fact that
a healthy social life improves human health. Active social life can strengthen and boost your mind
and health. It includes how society and members of society interchange and communicate their
ideas with each other. Social health is about how you cope up in professional relationships,
romantic relationship, friendship, and family relations.


HIGHLIGHTED POINTS OF SOCIAL HEALTH


 It decreases nostalgia and feeling of anxiousness and depression.
 If you are good at socializing with friends, and your community then you become more
self-assured.
 It maintains the harmony between physical and mental health.
 If your friends are encouraging, then it enhances your happiness and lessen your stress.
 If you engineer yourself to build a relationship with people who have same interest as you
then you are socially healthy person.

with the community.
 Last but not the least always communicate your fears and doubts with your family members
because they are your real and first support system. Family is the one who eliminates stress,
and negativity in your life.
To sum up, all three triangles of health (physical, mental, and social) if they are equally managed

triangles of health, then you are at risk this can directly lead you to health imbalance.
