Being healthy – what does that mean?
There is a formal definition – The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines “being healthy” as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.
Clearly, if 2020 has taught us anything, it is this – being healthy means (very) different things to (very) different people.
As we are all well aware, 2020 has certainly shed some bright lights on wellness issues, and they didn’t come out of nowhere, nor did these wellness issues arrive just because of Covid. They have existed for years – and they won’t be going away once we all head back to the office (if we head back to the office). This new ‘normal’ that we have found ourselves in, has thrown our bodies into some uncharted waters (I would know, even my yoga pants are starting to be less comfy). The lack of physical exercise, (whether you used to go to the gym or just walk around your office throughout the day), has had some negative side effects. It’s critical, more than ever, that we keep our bodies (and minds) healthy.
