This morning I would like to share with you something about health and fitness. Many people think that health means fitness. However, I think there are some differences between them.

According to the interpretation of World Health Organization, being healthy means a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity whereas being fit means the state of being physically active on a regular basis to maintain good physical condition.

As far as I am concerned, there is a close relationship between health and fitness. It is because keeping your body healthy is the key of acquiring fitness.

It is vitally important for us to be healthy and fit because it helps us to achieve a good quality of life, for example, achieving the goal in life. For me at the moment getting a good result in the UE exam and successfully get admission to university is of utmost importance, whereas for others having a good relationship with family and friends is their top priority. If we just care for our beauty by taking an unbalanced diet, we will lack nutrition and energy and become sick, then affecting our daily routine.

It is alarming that Hong Kong students are becoming less energetic, less fit and less healthy than before. If this continues, the society will certainly be affected because of the low productivity. So, it is high time for us to be aware of this phenomenon.

To alleviate the worsening situation, students should pay more attention to their diet. They should eat more vegetables, less meat and oily food. Besides, although teenagers may face a lot of homework and examinations, we still need to have enough time to sleep. They should participate in more sports, such as jogging and playing basketball or tennis on a regular basis. I am sure developing the habit of playing sports will be more interesting if they do so with friends.

Health and fitness are always the most precious assets that we should always treasure. So, from today onwards, let us pay more attention to our health and fitness and that looking forward to a fruitful and meaningful life. Also try to spend some time in the Christmas holiday to think of some ways to enhance your quality of life in 2010. This is what I want to share with you this morning. Thank you and merry Christmas to you all.
