linedividerThe most widely accepted definition of health is that of the World Health Organization Constitution. It states: “health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity” (World Health Organization, 1946). In more recent years, this statement has been amplified to include the ability to lead a “socially and economically productive life”.
In its most general meaning, physical fitness is a general state of good physical health. A physically handicapped person’s body may be physically fit (healthy), though its ability is likely to be less than optimum. Physical fitness is usually a result of regular physical activity and proper nutrition. Physical fitness can be divided into different areas, including: Flexibility, Cardio-respiratory endurance, and Strength.
The government Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans say to aim for at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of aerobic activity that requires moderate effort each week.

About Carl William Brown

I'm Carl William Brown a holistic teacher, a webmaster, a trader, and a writer of aphorisms and essays. I have written more than 9,000 original quotations and at present I'm also working at my only novel, Fort Attack, which is also a wide and open blog project. At the moment I'm teaching English in a secondary school, but up to now I have done a lot of other things as well, both in business, educational, sport and social fields. Some years ago, in 1997 following the examples of the Rotary or the Lyons Clubs I founded the Daimon Club Organization to promote every sort of activities, creativity, art, literature, new technologies, informatics, business and marketing, public health and education and to meet new friends with these kind of interests.
