Before discussing health education, it is imperative to conceptualize what health itself means. Health is a highly subjective concept. Good health means different things to different people, and its meaning varies according to individual and community expectations and context. Many people consider themselves healthy if they are free of disease or disability. However, people who have a disease or disability may also see themselves as being in good health if they can manage their condition so that it does not impact greatly on their quality of life.
Health is a relative state in which one can function well physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually to express the full range of one’s unique potentialities within the environment in which one is living. The present book discusses all the aspects of Contemporary Health Education and Yoga. The text are written in simple colloquial English.
