There are many ways to define health. Environmental factors and determinants may determine it and the number of control people have over their own lives. Another approach defines health in terms of sustainability. This can be useful for individuals as well as populations. However, it may also be confusing or produce circular logic. The key is to choose a definition that fits your situation and is realistic.
Resilience is a skill that enables us to deal with life’s challenges. These challenges arise from outside influences and our strengths and abilities. Resilient individuals use healthy coping strategies to overcome these challenges and overcome the other side stronger than before. This article will explore different types of resilience, their causes, and strategies to develop resilience.
There are a variety of systems, materials, and resources that help us build resilience. We need to understand the mechanisms that help us learn. Adaptive performance requires understanding what is happening around us and what is not happening in our lives.
Ability to satisfy needs
The concept ‘health’ is broad and includes personal care, social care, health care and access to education, employment and leisure. It can also include a person’s ability to live independently with a satisfactory quality of life. The concept is often used to justify the provision of social and medical care, but there are important distinctions between these concepts.
According to Green and Kreuter, a need is anything a person requires for health and comfort. These conditions can be personal, social, or environmental. For example, family planning information is a need. Smoke-free zones are an example of a health ‘hot line’. Other authors have argued that a person’s need is more objective. According to this approach, the right to health is one of the fundamental human rights.
Ability to cope with the disease
The ability to cope with disease refers to the ability of a person to adjust to the disruption caused by a disease. This ability involves a patient’s perception of the stress caused by an illness and mobilization of coping strategies that the person perceives as effective. The coping ability may be considered a general resistant resource, a resource that mediates between the patient’s sense of coherence and their quality of life (QoL).
