Building a Healthy Life
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Do you remember building with your blocks when you were younger? In order for a great structure to be created, you needed skill, patience, hard work, and the right blocks. To build a healthy and happy life, you need skill, patience, hard work, and the right blocks. In life, though, these blocks, or tools, are called life skills.
 
2     No one wants to feel frustrated. No one wants to feel sick. No one wants to fight all the time with friends or family. When these issues come up, though, life skills can help you deal with and improve the situation.
 
3     Do you remember the six components of health? They are physical, emotional, social, mental, spiritual, and environmental. Life skills can help improve these areas individually or, sometimes, together. It just takes practice. So what are the life skills?
 
4     First of all, an individual should assess his health. Doing this helps the person decide on his current state of well-being and pick the actions and behaviors that will improve his health.
 
5     Second of all, a person should try to communicate effectively. When a person can clearly state his feelings and listen effectively as well, relationships with others can improve.
