Some people say that the best way to improve public health is by increasing the number of sports facilities. Others, however, say that this would have little effect on public health and that other measures are required.
Public health is the key to a healthy environment for any city. For a city to remain clean, green and fit every individual must feel responsible and contribute towards a healthy living. Every individual’s involvement will be more fruitful than just a small group of people hustling and working towards betterment for all. If the public health is maintained well, the lifestyle of people can improve and society would automatically be a better place to live in.
Now that we know how important public health is on personal as well as community level, let us figure out ways to improve it. According to my, good health means being physically fit along with being mentally strong. This means both mental and physical health plays a vital role in human life and we should be well aware of it. As stated, increasing sports facilities will surely help improve the physical aspect but will lack in providing benefits to mental health. As we know that sports are a great form of exercise and exercising makes us feel good about ourselves and even uplifts our mood but sports alone are not sufficient enough in my opinion.
Along with sports several other awareness programs need to be held for people to normalize ill health and promote a positive approach towards mental health by letting them know the importance of being mentally fit too. Problems like obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. have become very common these days and workshops, seminars, lectures should be organized to let citizens know about dangers and risks caused by these common diseases.
Ultimately, increasing the number of sports facilities alone will not be enough and steps should be taken for creating awareness so that more people attracts towards using those sports facility and socialize more by participating in other mental health workshops so that they contribute in building a positive environment for all
