Since we don’t just want to talk about the deceased at Arlington National Cemetery, we’ve created a “Health” category to share health tips with veterans, military personnel and the general public.

In this day and age, it is much easier to live a healthy life than it used to be. We have much more knowledge and people are more ready to use it. Learn everything about health in this category.

What is meant by health?

Health is defined positively: as a state of comprehensive physical, mental and social well-being. In health promotion, health is seen as an essential part of everyday life and not primarily as a goal in life.

What is meant by social health?

Health is defined in a holistic view as physical, psychological and social well-being, which is influenced by individual, social and societal backgrounds. Health is thus less a state or goal than a resource of daily life.

What all is included in health?

Health is not merely the absence of disease and infirmity, “but the state of complete physical, mental, spiritual and social well-being.” Health is a component of everyday life and quality of life and a condition for social, economic and personal development.

What factors affect health?

The health of the population depends on numerous influencing factors. These include economic and social security, education, working conditions or participation in social events. Likewise, different lifestyles and the environment have an impact on health.
