Introduction

Section A-Promoting Health and Well Being In this section I am going to discuss health and well being, what health means and what health means to other. (We need pictures to explain how and why people have different views). I am also going to explain what P.I.E.S means. I will mention what Hierarchy and Culture means. Dictionary Definitions-Google Definitions Dictionary Definitions: Health- Well being is being free from diseases. This is the general condition of our body and mind.

Well Being- The state or condition of being well; welfare; happiness; prosperity; as, virtue is essential to the well-being of men or of society. What does being healthy mean toe me? For me, being healthy is being fit and active, and free from illnesses. I also think that being healthy means no involvement in drugs or alcohol. A person is healthy when he/she has a lot of energy, when he/she eats fruits and vegetables everyday and always drinks water. I also think that a person is healthy when he/she exercises daily. What does being healthy mean to someone else? Like people around us?

People with low self-esteem needs respect from others. Confidence, competence and achievement only need one person and everyone else is insignificant to one's own success. People who have low-esteem cannot be improved by how they see themselves by simply receiving respect and fame from others, but their self-esteem can improve first if they accept themselves within. 16.The last part of the Hierarchy needs is what Maslow called the "Growth Needs" which is self-actualisation. Self-Actualisation Self-Actualisation is the instinctual of a person to make the most of theor abilites and to try hard to be the best they can. A person has a high self-actualisation if they: * embrace the facts and realities of the world (including themselves) instead of denying or avoiding them * are impulsive in their ideas and actions * are creative * They are interested in solving problems; this includes the problems of others. Solving these problems is often a key focus in their lives * They feel a closeness to other people, and generally appreciate life * They have a system of morality that is fully internalized and independent of external authority * They have discernment and are able to view all things in an objective manner 16.According to Maslow, the tendencies of self-actualizing people are as follows: 1. Awareness * efficient perception of reality * freshness of appreciation * peak experiences * ethical awareness 2. Honesty * philosophical sense of humour * social interest * deep interpersonal relationships * democratic character structure 3. ...read more.

Food that is accepted in their diet is called "kosher" and strict Jews have separate areas of the kitchen to prepare meat and milk dishes. Dress Muslim men and women adhere to traditions are expected to show modesty about their bodies, as hindus ans Sikhs. Muslim women traditionally wear long loose tunic (kameez), very long trousers (shalwar) and a long scark (chuni) or a saree. Muslim girls and women who wear western dress usually wear trousers or long skirts to keep thri legs covered. They wear gold wedding bangles when they get married. They may also wear cultural and religious jewellry. Physical contact and cleanliness Strict Muslims forbid contact of any kind between people of their opposite sex unless thay are man and wife. This means that being examined by a male doctor or nurse (or being touched by a driver, male ambulance driver) can be very traumatic. These beliefs apply to hindu and Sikh people as well.
