Today, on April 7, people from all across the world are celebrating World Health Day to raise awareness about the importance of health. Under the leadership of World Health Organisation, this day is celebrated to ensure more and more people are taking time out of their daily life and focus on health and fitness. The WHO started to celebrate the World Health Day from 1950 to mark the founding of WHO and to draw attention to a global health topic each year.
Many local, regional and international events related to the theme of the year are organized by the WHO, which has a total of eight official global health campaigns. Each year, officials select a theme for the World Health Day and some of the past themes included Healthy heart beat, Healthy blood pressure, Vector-borne diseases: small bite, big threat, Food safety and Halt the rise: Beat diabetes. This year, the theme for the day is Universal Health Coverage: Everyone, Everywhere.
‘Universal Health Coverage: Everyone, Everywhere’ will ensure that everyone, everywhere should have access to essential quality of health services. Staying fit plays an important role in the overall development of our lives. The monumental increase in the level of stress that people have in their daily life demands an active body. This is where the need to workout and to have a healthy lifestyle comes in. However, taking time out to perform such things is very difficult. Hence there are many simple ways by which you can ensure a healthy and fit lifestyle such as: Get enough sleep, eat fresh, regular medical checkups, drink plenty of water, go for a routine walk, start performing yoga or go for a workout.
