How to deal with this crap
So my school sent out this test or whatever for our "health"... and I thought it was really goofy, because it wasn't detailed, and it asked questions that were pretty much random.
Health is when your healthy mentally, physically, and emotionally, not just free from disease and illness.
So questions that ask how many times you wash your hands.. and pick up a pencil are vague and don't have much meaning. Who counts how many times you pick up your pencil..?!
I feel that it would be smart to describe what mental, physical, and emotional health are and the characteristics of them.. and basically how to stay that way!
Mental HealthMeaning: Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
Characteristics: Characteristics for bad mental health is not just feeling "depressed" or "suicidal"... but just not being happy in general. Having one bad day doesn't make you have "bad" mental health, but continuously feeling sad, useless, unloved, etc, can lead to bad mental health. Thinking about death, killing, or dying, can also lead to bad mental health.
Constant Health: To keep good mental health you don't have to always be happy and bubbly, but just not sad, or constantly in a sad state of mind. If you're in bad mental health, the best thing you can do is try to do things that make YOU happy. Enjoy your life while you have it.
Physical HealthMeaning: This is not just how you look on the outside, example, pretty or distasteful. This is basically how healthy you are, for example just because you're skinny, doesn't mean you're healthy. Healthy in physical health means that you're working out, you're in good shape, and you'll have a longer chance of living.
Characteristics: People who usually have good physical health work out and are pretty much happy people. When working out, it releases "happy chemicals" to you're body,and makes you feel pretty good. They are also not over weight, and they aren't too skinny.
Constant Health: To maintain good physical health, working out & eating right are crucial areas that you should work on. Looking up a recent BMI chart, can help you get on the right track, and see about where people your age & size are.
Emotional HealthMeaning: Emotional health is largely based on Genetics & environment. Having good emotional health means that you are in control of your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. Having good emotional health means that you are in good control of yourself and it doesn't necessarily mean that you are in love with yourself, but you don't have to doubt yourself, and believe you're a terrible person.
Characteristics: People with good emotional health usually have good relationships, and they feel good about themselves. People with bad, or poor emotional health, tend to not really believe in themselves, they're often introverted and they dint often socialize.
Constant Health: To contain good emotional health, you need to do things that make you happy, not only that but you have to believe in yourself, and keep living life as best as you can!
