GOOD HEALTH LEADS TO HOLISTIC GROWTH AND DEVEELOPMENT

GOOD HEALTH GENERATES POSITIVE FEELING FOR LIVING HAPPILY

GOOD HEALTH IS BASIC TO OUR HOLISTIC GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT

We are in good health when we are physically fit and can transact all our assigned tasks with focused mindset. Having good health (Swasth) means no disease at all, no ailment at all, physically and mentally.This happens when we feel positively oriented in our thoughts and actions thereof. Good health helps in creating situations and conditions to put long hours of work continuously A person with good health, while performing their tasks, we do not get tired or get bored but feel agile or lively and that too  with joy abandon. Success or failure does not make any difference to such a person because a person with good health, vigor or strength remains balance in all situations and conditions. No fear or qualms of any sort  to weather the storm and face the challenges of our lives with determination and with singleness of purpose. This is possible only when we enjoy sound health.

CORRELATION BETWEEN GOOD HEALTH AND HAPPY LIFE

In Shaloka 2.11 of Bhagwad Gita, it has been rightly said that those who are wise do not grieve for the living nor for the dead – meaning any sadness was of no consequence. Contentment is the result of natural state of one’s being which leads to good health and happy life which is everybody’s right.

WE BECOME WHAT WE EAT

GOOD HEALTH LEADS TO HAPPINESS

We are in good health and wellbeing when we enjoy with no disease. In Bhagwad Gita it has been said that what we eat we become. If we eat nourishing and balanced diet meeting the requirement of our body in terms of provision of necessary salts, minerals, needed fats etc.

Good health generates a feeling of contentment which a person enjoys which results from intake of nourishing and wholesome which gives us satiety. Such foods are suitable for persons with Satvic traits.Thus satiety and good health are correlated. Such a person wants to enhance his knowledge from any source he/she can lay his hands on.

The ones who eat pungent and burning foods, with condiments with more salt and  which results in producing heat in the body, pain and sometimes disease; this sort of food is liked by persons with Rajsvic traits. Such persons would like to follow an active oriented lifestyle such as taking up military as a career etc.

On the other hand, foods taken half-cooked, tasteless with unpleasant smell and tastes etc. is Tamsic in nature and results in getting all the negative traits with no aspirations to get enlightenment.

WE GET STRESSED WHEN WE ARE PHYSICALLY WEAK

It would not be relevant to mention the stress level resulting in mental health problems of the students who are following online studies which they had never followed till the adverse situation created by Novel Coronavirus Pandemic.

STRESS LEVEL OF OUR STUDENTS IN COVID-19 PANDEMIC SITUATION

In the Covid-19 pandemic situation the students perforce have to follow online studies sitting at home thus missing the formal lesson in classroom environment, with hectic, with lessons from their teachers wherein they can queries clarified what they are not able to understand instantly. They are also missing the morning assembly, tete-a-tete with their peer group besides physical exercise period etc. All this is the unique situation created owing to Covid-19 situation. All this is telling on the students in a big way since holistic growth and development of a child could only be possible in the formal schooling environment.

DIGITAL DIVIDE BETWEEN HAVES AND HAVE-NOTS AND STRESS LEVEL  

It is also pertinent to mention here that all the students are not able to pursue online courses because of their parents’ hard financial background. The students from poor family background can ill-afford the necessary connecting equipment such as computer/laptop, suitable mobile,  microphone, speakers et to communicate with full net-connectivity. It goes to show that all students cannot follow the modern method of education. Thus digital divide between haves and have-nots is appalling indeed and a cause for concern.  The authorities concerned should come forward in bridging this gap so that all without exception get education in this Covid-19 pandemic situation. Care ought to be paid that the students from the poor family background should not be the losers and get unnecessary stressed thereby impacting not only their studies but also their health and wellbeing. This pressure tells badly on the students of poor families who though are intelligent but cannot afford the costly phones and other equipment.

WE ARE HEALTHY WHEN WE ARE INTERNALLY STRONG

We are healthy (swasthya) when we are intrinsically strong. We are intrinsically strong when we follow spiritually oriented existence. In Bible it has rightly been said: A cheerful heart is good medicine but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

WITH SPIRITUALLY ORIENTED EXISTENCE WE ARE INTRINSICALLY STRONG

Spirituality is something that’s talked about a lot but is often misunderstood. Many people think that spirituality and religion are the same thing, and so they bring their beliefs and prejudices about religion to discussions about spirituality. Though all religions emphasise spiritualism as being part of faith, you can be ‘spiritual’ without being religious or a member of an organised religion.

Following a life of spirituality is individualist in nature. It means, we have freedom to follow a course of action which has honesty and sincerity as its two hallmarks. Spiritual oriented way of life may or may not have specific or particular type of faiths, beliefs and practices thereof which are being followed by a person or group of people. Spiritual way of life thus includes how best we fulfill our obligations, trust others and perform our duties with sincerity etc. When specific way of beliefs (in case of religion) and individual freedom merge, it becomes all the more beneficial for an individual and the society. It follows that spiritual way of existence includes purity of thoughts and actions. When we talk of purity of thoughts, we connect it with heart and with our eternal soul or rather intrinsic in nature which gives us peace, contentment and happiness ultimately.

CURE OF BODY AND MIND

It should always be realized that the physical health of an individual could be cured with medical intervention based on physical symptoms and ailment but inner peace could be realized by connecting with God and following positive oriented way of life thereby solving our problems which beset us. In Guru Granth Sahib it has rightly been said: He is Everything. He is the one who will listen to all your problems and sorrows and he will heal the pain of yours.All you need is trust and faith.  

Conclusively, it could be said that good health and well-being is essential for us but for this to be reality, we have to follow some basic requisites for a holistic growth and development. Here good health is precursor for every other aspects because if we enjoy good health, we are physically and mentally agile and if we are physically and mentally sound then we can follow positive oriented existence including spiritual way of life to realize the purpose of life for liberation from births and deaths (Moksha) ultimately.

GOD is very compassionate with us in every way, need is to use those blessings which are the results of His bounties and thank Him for everything that He gives us. We should also share these bounties with our fellow-beings. I am the person who loves God and His Creations. I love my Creator and not fear Him. My children are adjusted to life, incommensurate, to their Karma and destiny. I have served as a Sr CGO for about 38 years in a Central Govt. Presently I am serving as an Adm Offer with an Engineering College. I am a spiritual person with liberal ways of thinking. I respect all the religions as I respect mine since I understand that all the religions are the pathways to a SINGLE ENTITY - paths for connecting with Him may be different but the ULTIMATE SOURCE IS ONE. I want to be a student till last day of my life. I am a homeopath also, which I pursue as a social service only. Happy moments, I take as God's Gifts, sad ones I take as His Test for me. I believe that He will surely assist me in this Test of His, come what may. Really. I have more belief in Him than I am on my own. You can comprehend my philosophy in life from my write-ups which I write while interacting with them. I firmly believe that every person has the special characteristic which other fellows cannot have and I respect that person as such. With the grace of Almighty God, a book entitled INNER THOUGHTS which could be purchased online from http://flipkart.com. This book is based on the topics which have been penned down. That is why it is rightly said if intentions are good, everything goes well with you.
