“Health is created and lived by people within the settings of their everyday life; where they learn, work, play and love. Health is created by caring for oneself and others, by being able to take decisions and have control over one’s life circumstances, and by ensuring that the society one lives in creates conditions that allow the attainment of health by all its members.”
This is how the World Health Organization (WHO, 1986) defines health in its Ottawa Charter (1986) for Health Promotion.
Today, people are investing more of their free time and money in their well-being. This trend is based on the insight that it is not just important to live as long as possible but also to make sure that the quality of life, even in old age, is defined by our daily well-being.
