Importance of Health and Wellness


The importance of health and wellness is significant in everyday life. There are primary components of health and fitness and secondary components. Primary components of health related fitness consist of four main topics, which include: cardiorespiratory capacity, muscular capacity, flexibility, and body composition. Each part affects different aspects of health, fitness and wellness. Secondary components of fitness include seven different types of performance-based fitness, which are necessary for daily functioning and incorporated in all physical activity.

Health and wellness fit together but are also very different. Health is included in every human being and is constantly changing over time. Health can be considered good or bad, depending on whether or not a person is sick with an illness, cold, or contains bacteria. Health is also broken up into four separate types involving social health, mental health, emotional health, and spiritual health. Wellness however, can depend on the person. Some people have the drive to obtain wellness in their daily life. Wellness is determined by a person’s own responsibility on living out a healthy life style. Goals for wellness can be set and achieved when working out, eating healthy, or even trying to diet.

Although health and wellness are made up of multiple different factors, there are still a numerous amount of benefits to incorporating health, wellness, and fitness in a daily routine.
