Health and hygiene

  1. 1. INTRODUCTION • Health education plays an important role in the community hygiene. To prevent illness and have positive health attitude, correct and complete knowledge of health is necessary. Health is cleanliness and cleanliness is one of the main defenses against diseases, whether contagious or self-generated. In this lesson we will discuss the actual meaning of health and hygiene, so that the aim of good health can be achieved through sanitary habits and healthy way of living.
  2. 2. • Health is freedom from disease and sickness. Without health, we cannot do any work and we cannot improve in life. So, health is the primary need for every one of us. To keep our health well, we should obey the laws of hygiene. Food, exercise, rest and sleep, regular habits, neatness and cleanliness, air and light, punctuality and peace of mind are the primary conditions for good health. Hence, we should eat healthy food and balance diet. Everyday we should take exercise in morning and evening. We should be regular in all our daily duties. We should be neat and clean. We should let fresh air and light into our houses. We should be punctual in all our daily duties. Peace of mind is another condition for good health. So, we should not worry over small things of life. Labor must be followed by rest. There is an old saying- "Early to bed and early to rise Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise" Therefore we should rise early in the morning and sleep in the evening. It is true that health is the best wealth. But it is a matter of regret that most of us do not realize it. Hygiene is taught in the class but nobody follows the principle of hygiene. Hence they are falling prey to many kinds of disease. However, it is hoped that they will soon understand their mistakes and will give up their dirty habits.
  3. 3. WHAT IS HEALTH ? • Health is a positive state of well being, where every part of the body and mind is in harmony and in proper functioning balance with every other part. In other words, when every organ of the body is functioning normally, the state of physical well being is known as health. It has been well said that only that person can be called really healthy who has a sound mind in a sound body. Health is the characteristic of life that enables a person to live longer. According to World Health Organisation (WHO): “Health is the state of complete physical, mental, spiritual and social well-being and not merely absence of disease”. If a person is disease free or in a good physical state, but under stress, tension, anger, greed etc. than that person is not considered as a healthy person. Hence, in addition to physical health, we must consider the mental and emotional health also, only than spiritual and social health can be achieved and man can progress forward for the well being of the society.
  4. 4. HYGIENE • Hygiene is defined as the science and art of preserving and improving health. The purpose of hygiene is to allow man to live in healthy relationship with his environment. It deals both with an individual and a community as a whole. In order to be healthy one must realize that hygiene and sanitation play a very important role.
  5. 5. Let us understand the various aspects of health • · Physical health – When the body is free from any physical ailment or abnormal condition, it is physical health. • · Mental health – The state of absence of stress, tension, worry, negative thoughts etc. is mental health. • · Emotional health – A balanced state of absence of anger, greed, proud, hatred etc. is emotional health. • · Spiritual health – To live in yourself with uniformity and harmony is spiritual health. Also, to have faith in your religion and respect & view other’s religion with equal harmony is known as spiritual health. • Community health is the art and science of maintaining, protecting and improving the health of people through organized community efforts.
  6. 6. TIPS • Personal cleanliness, by which dirt and pathogens may be avoided, may be achieved in several ways: • The hands should always be washed thoroughly with soap before preparing food, eating and after a visit to the toilet. • Fingernails and toenails should always be kept short and clean so that they do not provide breeding places for germs • It is essential to bathe frequently. This helps to prevent skin infections. Sweat and oil secretions on the skin enable the bacteria to breed easily. Bath towels and sponges should not be shared with people. • The hair should be washed frequently to avoid lice and mites. These can spread typhus fever. • Combs and hairbrushes should not be shared. The spaces between teeth where food particles are trapped provide excellent breeding grounds for bacteria. • Teeth should therefore be cleaned at least twice daily, preferably after each meal. • Clothing should be clean and changed frequently • Sandals or shoes should be worn to prevent cuts and infections by hookworm In addition to cleanliness, other factors which are important in promoting health include exercise, recreation and rest. Exercise makes the muscles strong so they can support the body better. It helps to get rid of excretory materials and improve digestion. It quickens blood circulation and improves the action of the glands and nerves. Recreation such as gardening, playing games and reading can remove any dullness and mental tiredness resulting from everyday work. The best form of rest is sleep. Adults eight hours sleep a day. A great deal of repair of worn out tissues in the body and the building up of new ones takes place when the body rests. Drug abuse
