    When I was young to me, it was when I'd gone a while without having to take any medication at all. Now as an adult it's now managing all my conditions with medicines if needs must and feeling the best i can be living with them, and keeping stress to a minimum in my life. What about you?

    Being healthy means two things:

    1) being free of any diseases/illness

    2) regular excercise and eating well

    I'd agree on the regular exercise and eating well, but with being free of illness and disease, there are so many people with long term conditions, some preventable, some not it's difficult to be free of anything for life. For example, my asthma and hayfever can't be cured, but most of the time with treatment it's like i dont have them at all.

    I'm not much of a runner, but can't disagree that it's really good for you.

    Being free of disease, rarely ever having to go to the doctors, having a relatively low risk of major conditions like heart disease as well as reasonable fitness levels regarding strength, endurance, speed, flexibility etc.

    I think walking is great for the mind and body, it usually helps me destress after work.

    Precisely! Gym seems a bit robotic if it makes sense?

    I prefer connecting to the nature and breathing fresh air
