My name is Jeff Malta and welcome to Malta Elections.
As you can see I took a risk with the name of the site but I wanted to make a statement and that’s why I chose it.
The idea behind the big name is to live up to the message I’m trying to spread and treat this blog as my platform for helping people, so much that if I ran to presidency I’d be elected.
I know a lot about health, fitness, business, family, and self development.
A lot of times these are the pain areas in our life and if we learn to master our skills and combine it with the right data, every one of us could live his dreams and reach his full potential.
The key area that this site will talk about is around health.
Health has always been defined as “a state of complete mental, physical, and social well-being and it is not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.
This statement still stands up to today after more than 6 decades when it was first announced in the first WHO meeting held in 1948.
Health is not an absence of disease but rather an enhance state of well-being. Health is a state of well-being that people must create for themselves by taking personal responsibility for their own lives.
When your health has been defined with complete mental, physical and social well-being, it is usually being referred to as Health Triangle. You will feel completeness in life for basic needs. You don’t feel handicapped and will be able to survive basic life without physical and drug support.
Health definition from World Health Organization
In 1986 at the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion, WHO defined health as:
- A resource for everyday life but not the objective of living
- A positive concept emphasizing on personal and social resources together with physical capacities.
Why Wellness and Health Have Become a Challenge in the Modern World?
With wellness and healthy living becomes the top priority in urban lifestyle, physical and mental health have been placed in the spotlight. It becomes the biggest challenge for all parties especially the government to focus on this part.
Humans have evolved from the original caveman who lived freely without constriction for the past 200,000 years. Since industrialization evolved the last 200 years, more humans migrated to cities. Humans who once lived freely now became congested in little known ‘pigeon hole’ to make a living in the urban. This has created a major shift of ‘normality’ from freedom country living to cramped living.
Such a sudden change to humanitarian livelihood has caused a major challenge in terms of personal space, personal hygiene, disease control, diet, pollution control, the amount of rest required, stresses and many others.
My goal here is to discuss these problems so that you’ll know the consequences of modern living and that you’ll be better equipped dealing with these ever increasing challenges in this ever changing world.
