The Voice of Chandigarh

World Health Day is a global health awareness day celebrated every year on 7th April. In 1948, the World Health Organization organized the first world health assembly. The objective of World Health Day is to spread awareness around the globe on specific issues relating to Health. “Health is one of the critical factors for everybody.”Without health, we won’t be able to achieve or accomplish our goals in life. However, it is vital for us to correct the knowledge of people around the world and make them aware of different health issues. These days, people are mostly attracted towards junk food, alcohol, smoking and indoor activities, rather than healthy food and outdoor activities. So, we must take care of the health for a better and healthy future. The beginning of a healthy lifestyle starts by opting for healthy diet along with healthy living habits like eating nutritious food, practicing hygienic habits, walking and exercising regularly, maintaining good emotional and mental health along with adequate sleep.
