A healthy person would be able to serve himself, the society, the commodity & the nation and an unhealthy person will suffer illness, would be weak, will not be able to perform his day-to-day tasks and duties, and won’t be considered as a responsible citizen of the society. When the disease develops, a person became more dependent on someone and is unable to meet the different needs of life, which affects his physique and creates a self of helplessness and weakness.
An unhealthy person would be counted as less productive and become a weakened part of the society whereas the presence of a healthy individual makes sure the essence of productivity isn’t been lost and a healthy person possesses the power and the ability to serve and give. Furthermore, a healthy person make sure that it saves the cost of hospitals, treatments, medicines, etc. and an unhealthy person will drown a pound of money in cure and medicines this states that a healthy person, make sure that he is far away from diseases and understand the quote very well, that is “prevention is better than cure”.
Many government firms also spend a large amount of money on treatments, medications, and different funding’s because they are also concerned about the safety of the people and they understand the guidelines under prevention modules. Psychologically, it has been suggested that a healthy person lives a more comfortable and happy life as compared to an unhealthy person because mental illness is also been considered as unhealthy as in this condition, a people tends to be more gloomy, pessimistic and does not feel happy this may spoil his relationship status in the society and may prevent the love kindness and intimacy which a healthy person would be enjoying in his life, finally, a person must be considered healthy on many factors that are how he/she is avoiding diseases that interfere a healthy personal life and how can an individual prevent himself or herself from being exposed with the mental illness and how a person has been tackling the social situations of the society and considering that a healthy person would always be an asset that would be contributing towards the society mentally, physically, and socially.
