Health is more than the absence of illness. It is a physical and psychological balance with the external and internal environment. Maintaining health is only possible with active and health conscious behaviour. A passive life style and the abuse of substances considerably decrease life expectancy. Maintaining health requires constant attention, work and learning. A health conscious life has to be started in the early years. Most chronic diseases develop early. The socialisation and behavioural patterns of childhood and puberty define the health of a person in the long run. The basis for a healthy life is appropriate nutrition and physical exercise. Excessive consumption of substances severely burdens the organism. Legal drugs such as cigarettes and alcohol are particularly harmful. Smoking causes perhaps the most damages in the human organism, it is the starting point of a number of respiratory and circulatory diseases. A healthy life style can be achieved in many ways. Conscious nutritional choices, regular exercise and moderate consumption are needed. At best, these guidelines are not lived as restrictions but become a part of one’s life style, ensuring a long and good quality life.
