Nordqvist (2009) states that the word ‘health’ has been derived from an old word ‘hale’ that means ‘well being’.

Staying healthy is an art that pays.
Contrarily, unhealthy people are those who are not blessed with health, physical or mental. They are either suffering from a disease that shows, or if they are perfectly normal bodily, then they insist on staying unhealthy when they possess negative thoughts for themselves and for others which are harmful in nature. Thus, physical and mental disorders account for a person’s unhealthiness.

This increases their acceptance in the society. People want to meet them
