A dictionary might say that health is the state of being free from illness or injury. But others think it is more.

The American Academy of Family Physicians says health is more than the absence of disease. “Health is a state of physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity,” it says. It is the key to living a productive and satisfying life. You can break down the concept of health into different categories. These could include physical, mental, emotional, and behavioural health.

As an old person, a way to keep mentally able is to keep activating your brain by doing activities like Scrabble or crosswords, as it is quite hard to take part in more physical activities. It is important to stay healthy because you will have a much more enjoyable life.
