  • Health & Fitness
    • health
      • a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity
        • problems of definition
          • just because an individual is not obviously suffering from ill health or injury does not necessarily mean they are healthy
          • mental wellbeing is not merely the absence of mental illness - not coping with the stress of ones' working life wouldn't be defined as mental illness
          • social wellbeing involves elements of living within a community, fulfilling work, social relationships etc.
    • fitness
      • ability to cope with the demands of everyday life
        • problems with definition
          • the demands made by our lifestyle can vary hugely e.g. office worker & elite athlete
    • how health & fitness are related
      • the individual who is fit is more likely to be healthy - in both physical and psychological terms
      • if we engage in activities that help develop or maintain our levels of fitness we are less likely to suffer from certain illnesses
