How do you define HEALTH?

(Philosophical ponderings with Dr. Kristen)

· health,Secrets and Myths,Goals
What is health?​ No, wait.... seriously.... what actually IS it?
It's one of the hottest topics today. It's one of the most valuable assets we have. 
But take a moment to think about what it means to be healthy. 
Did you know that there is a real definition (that's recognized by all major medical textbooks in the world)?
"Health is the ability to function at 100% mentally, physically, and socially." 
I wonder how that definition differed (or didn't) from  yours? 
Here's what my standard of being healthy is for myself: 
Health is about how well we FUNCTION, not about how we FEEL.
It's about how well the body ADAPTS when it is challenged. We can't avoid every single "bad" thing in life or prevent every injury. But when the body is strong, it will be able to adapt and respond (not crumble and fall apart). 
It's dynamic and constantly changing. 
Being healthy means that you're always trying to be a tiny bit better than you were yesterday!
