Health and Disease

Health, according to the World Health Organization, is “the condition of being healthy”. Various definitions have also been applied for various purposes over the years. The best definition however is that defined by the WHO as “excellent health with balanced personal responsibility”.


The definition of good health is a combination of physical, mental, social and economic aspects. It also includes the ability to perform work and cope with everyday life in a normal way. This ability is dependent on a good diet, exercise and regular participation in recreational activities. A physically healthy individual is able to carry out their day to day activities without difficulties.

For a person to be regarded as having good health, they must have the ability to make informed decisions regarding their health, food, health and physical environment. Health and wellbeing is influenced by a number of external factors such as the quality of the community in which they live, their occupational environment and the relationships they have with others. Having a healthy lifestyle can improve physical health, emotional health and mental health and contribute to the overall wellbeing of the nation. Community health is an important element in promoting good health because it brings together people from all walks of life and builds trust among them to support each other in facing challenges and maintaining good health and well being.

The concept of “life expectancy” is an aspect of subjective wellbeing. “Life expectancy” is an average expected lifespan based on age and is normally presented as a standard range for adults. Longer life expectancy has been associated with higher rates of survival and with reduced levels of disability and illness. This concept is the outcome of current research and is the same used to assess levels of health and wellness. Quality of life is influenced by a person’s physical health and their emotional health and it is measured using various questionnaire techniques.

Societal class is a sociological category that refers to differences in life expectancy. Low life expectancy means that someone will live a shorter time than the norm; a high life expectancy indicates a longer period of time during which an individual will be alive. People who are considered to be at risk or suffering from some form of chronic health condition are considered to be at a higher risk of contracting chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes. These types of diseases are not preventable and can only be curbed with the right diet, exercise and medical treatment. The concept of life expectancy is an intricate one and many studies over the years have provided estimates based on different statistical models. Experts in the field conduct studies to try and determine better ways of preventing disease, particularly by improving nutrition, physical activity and creating supportive environments.

People who do not enjoy their lives and have little positive interactions with others are said to be at high risk of developing mental illnesses. Mental health and illness are usually determined through research using a variety of methods. A person with frequent headaches is at higher risk of developing chronic headaches, while someone who has more stable diets and does regular exercises is less likely to develop health problems related to obesity. Other diseases that have higher incidences of occurrence in people who are diagnosed with mental illness include depression, post traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, psychosis and schizophrenia.

A Discussion About Making a Living As an Artist

An artist is usually someone involved in a professional activity relating to making art, practising the arts, or showing an artistic skill. In academic terms, the term artist includes anyone who makes art, whether as an individual or as part of a group. The term also includes any person who shows art, whether public or private. Some artists work for hire whereas others produce their own art. Others still display art on the streets and sell art pieces. Still others sell their paintings in galleries or on websites such as eBay.


An artist may be artistic in nature by deciding what he likes and seeking to express this through his work, or he may choose to engage in the business aspect of selling art by using his skills to make clients profit from his creations. It does not matter which way an artist goes about making art, but he must have certain characteristics. Most artists have a talent for identifying colours, shapes, lines, and so on. Other artists must have the skill to follow a pattern while working.

One of the most difficult qualities to master if one wants to be called an artist is the ability to identify beauty in things. An artist must be able to see the beauty in something, even if he does not understand the underlying meaning. If an artist sees something beautiful in a nature photograph, he can use it as a canvas for his artwork. A painter may find an image of a mother hen he enjoys looking at and recreate it in her own image to decorate a wall. These artists do not view the photograph necessarily as an actuality; instead, they look at it as something that can add beauty to their surroundings.

Music and art are similar in that the process of creation requires an artist to identify and select something that inspires him. Music, like painting, comes from the imagination and so is much harder to master than the other. Most musicians will develop a lifelong passion for music, no matter what instrument they play. Other musicians will develop their particular style because they have their own personal characteristics and experiences. Jazz musicians, classical musicians, and singer-songwriters have all discovered their individual voice and unique gifts and are able to communicate these wonderfully to the world.

Some musicians try to create musical concepts on their own. This is true for many classical musicians. However, many modern musicians choose to follow more in the footsteps of established musicians. They listen to the music that inspires them, imitating their styles, and writing original music based on their musical idea. Whether the artist chooses to be part of an established musical group or writes his own music, he will gain artistic satisfaction by sharing his musical ideas with others.

Many artists work closely with their recording engineer to produce the perfect mix, take care of the sound mix, and the tracks that will appeal to the audience. Musicians who are not professional performers should not underestimate the importance of recording experience and skills, as these are vital factors in creating a great musical idea. As well, most professional musicians make it a point to record as much of their own material as possible, in order to preserve their unique sounds and to allow future generations to enjoy these sounds as well.
