Transcript of Healthy Lifestyles
Health is much more than the absence of disease. Health is made up of a number of
components that interact to determine a level of health. They include:
Factors that affect health
Your level of health is influenced by a number of factors. You have little control over some of these factors, such as family history of disease or your gender. But you can control others, such as decisions regarding your health. Your genetic make-up, the physical and socioeconomic environment in which you live and your lifestyle behaviours affect your level of health.
Balancing our Lifestyle
To maintain good health we need to make sure that the way we live our lives helps us to stay free from illness and that our bodies and minds are in good working order.
Components of balanced lifestyle
Rest and Sleep
The Nature of Health
As Australians, we see ourselves as belonging to a healthy, prosperous nation. We have plentiful food, clean water, advanced medicine and a strong economy. Compared to developing nations, we live longer and have lower levels of death and disease. Our current life expectancy is:
Men 79.3 & Women 83.9
Benefits of a Healthy Lifestyle
Sleep and Rest
Sleep is essential to help you cope with everyday life. Although the body was made to move, it is necessary to give it time to recuperate and restore energy. How much rest and sleep your body needs is determined by your age as well as other lifestyle factors, such as your physical activity level and your school and work commitments.
So… how much sleep do we need?
Lifestyle Choices and behaviours
As part of our lifestyle, we make choices and adopt behaviours that will impact on our health. These are often formed at a young age or during childhood and adolescence.
Year 7 PDHPE
The World Health Organisation
defines health as:
Health is a state of complete physical. Mental and social well-being and not merely the chance of infirmity
Health is Dynamic
Health is dynamic – that means our health continually changes. It can change from day to day, week to week or year to year. Health is therefore something that people achieve and need to constantly work on. There are many factors that can have an impact on our level of health. Nothing can ensure lasting health, but leading a better lifestyle can give us a better chance.
Activity: Rank your feelings about your current level of health on the continuum and give reasons why you have chosen this ranking. Place an X to indicate your choice.

School and Work
The human body is made to move and. like any other ‘machine’, being idle (not moving) prevents it from working efficiently. So what does the term physical activity mean?
Physical Activity refers to any activity that involves significant movement of the body or limbs
Some of the reasons people have become inactive:
To encourage Australians to become more active, the government has recommended physical activity guidelines to encourage all Australians to increase their level of activity. By following the guidelines, we should achieve a more balanced lifestyle and an improved level of health. The 4 National Physical Activity Guidelines for Australians are:
National Physical Activity Guidelines for Australians
