Health, one

Health is a state of physical, mental, and social well-being. It involves more than just the absence of disease.

A truly healthy person not only feels good physically but also has a realistic outlook on life and gets along well with other people.

Good health enables people to enjoy life and have the opportunity to achieve the goals they have set for themselves.
