Health, Wellness and Nature in Andorra
Nature as a source of health
As defined by World Health Organization (WHO), it is a
"State of complete physical, mental, and social well being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
Physical well being:“Physical well-being consists of the ability to perform physical activities and carry out social roles that are not hindered by physical limitations and experiences of bodily pain, and biological health indicators”.
Mental health: is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community
Social health: The social health of individuals refers to "that dimension of an individual's well-being that concerns how he gets along with other people, how other people react to him, and how he interacts with social institutions and societal mores" (Russell 1973, p. 75)
