Am I Healthy?

Factors such as clean water and air, adequate housing, and safe communities and roads all have been found to contribute to good health. The World Health Organization defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. Health, according to Wikipedia is a positive concept emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities.In general, it is the condition of a person in mind, body and spirit being free from illness, injury or pain. For me, our health status is the reflection of the food we eat, the things that we do, and the thoughts that we think. Environmental, Biomedical, and Lifestyle are the three determinants of a good health. Lifestyle is the the aggregation of personal decisions which I think I failed. Some decisions I regret but enjoy doing so are smoking and eating unhealthy food. Consequences are illness to both physical and emotional. At my age, my vision is no longer 20/20, my teeth are no longer complete and my skin is not clear, indications of a poor health. I'm wearing coloured contact lenses to correct my vision and planning to undergo teeth implants. I guess its not too late to change my lifestyle.
