Health, for me, is having an overall balance in your life, and understanding that your body is a machine that needs fuel and regular movement to function properly!!

So I've thought of a million things that I think health are and keep realizing that all of them really are tied to the definitions you posted. Health is such a balance of body, mind and spirit. I think that when we eat right from the recommended food groups (without overeating!), get plenty of sleep and exercise we are healthy in body. And I guess the mind and spirit in my opinion really go hand in hand in that if we are really seeking God in our lives He helps our focus and our way of thinking so we are comfortable in ourselves and don't believe lies from the enemy that can so easily give us an unhealthy body image among many other things. Now if only I could master these! I hope I win so I can get pushed/lead in the right direction! I love this giveaway!!!

I think health is a feeling within yourself, not something an outsider can always see.

Going through our life right now, health is being able to accomplish the little things in life without complete exhaustion or pain.

Health is being able to find yourself, and keep on the right track when it comes to fitness, cutting back on your indulgences. Nostalgic health is missing gym class everyday.

To me the definition of health is feeling good and balanced. I like to feel like I have made good choices for my physical and emotional health........eating right, getting exercise, and having a few moments of quiet time. This is what makes me feel balanced and on track!

Health to me is a combination of the big and little choices that make you feel like your life is whole and complete. Anything from non-toxic cleaners, organic foods, raking leaves in the sunshine, a hug and kiss from the one you love, a smile and a laugh, a good night's sleep and a million other choices in between.

Health to me is eating great, feeling the best you can. Treating your body with the dignity it deserves! I admit I don't do this always and eat a lot of junk!

My definition of health:

It is a condition of our mind, body and soul. We must adapt to the constant changes in our environment, society and stress level to keep homeostasis in our health.
