Health is as an optimal state of the body and mind.

You may say you are physically healthy when you do not have any unusual pain or other symptoms. On the other hand, you could feel fine but already had an underlying disease. For this reason, a doctor will consider you healthy only when the results of your medical investigations are normal.

You may say you are mentally healthy when you can think clearly, make rational decisions, enter into meaningful relationships and regularly experience emotional satisfaction. Specifically, the emotions of peace and joy will likely convince you that you are doing well.

The word health means being whole, sound, well or uninjured [1].

You do not need to see health as a life goal but a resource you can use to do what you believe is right to do.
