The foundation of earth is one of the best creations and sanctifications of God. He has gifted us with, four types of seasons, and high-quality food from diverse sources. Allah has blessed us with a variety of senses for our proper well being along with self approval, so in that way we can develop a healthy environment. Environment is the only factor which is greatly interlinked with the inhabitants of that place, and plays a major part in safeguarding of their health. It has numerous forms including natural environment, biophysical environment, built up environment, and others.
As we all know that “health is wealth”, so it matters a lot in the appropriate performance of our body, and substantial for proper functioning of our lives. Environment delivers profound result on our well being and influences it directly or indirectly. Health is seriously affected by immunological effects falling under specific category of chemicals and radiations. Different factors such as physiological, psychological, social, mental and cultural contribute alot in apt built up of healthy environment. Other factors such as proper housing, urban development, transport and occupied land are also vital for the hale and hearty atmosphere.
Certain physical characteristics and factors regarding environment have a very innate influence on us. It involves different kind of indoor or outdoor air, smoke prevailing in air influence health badly, and causes several diseases such as respiratory disorders, inflammation in lungs etc. Dust particles suspended in air are inhaled by the individuals that are source of harmful results too, and in order to get rid of such destructive situation we should plant maximum trees. This will lead in the reduction of pollutants, provision of the dust free environment.
Some natural disasters for instance wars, earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods affect human health adversely. In these circumstances lots of epidemics break out due to diverse sort of pollutants and chemicals. So people of those regions should be shifted in safe areas before their possible occurrence to avoid its damaging end results. Precautionary measures should be taken by the Government and people themselves. Government should provide sufficient quantity of food, so that they should not have to face any kind of nutritional deficiency which leads to different diseases.
Distinctive type of climatic conditions such as excess of cold in winters and hot summers also initiate many ailments. As we all know that sunlight is essential for humans because it provides them Vitamin D, inspite of its merits it also has some demerits as its ultraviolet rays affect the human health and its excess leads to sun burns etc. So we should be prepared in advance through preventive measures.
Environment should be facilitated with safe and clean water so that people shouldn’t face diseases such as typhoid or hepatitis A (acute hepatitis). Proper system of sanitation and sewage should be implemented. There should be proper disposal of medical waste such as used syringes and other medical equipments by the management. Vector control techniques should be applied to avoid unwanted mosquitoes, flies, cockroaches, and rodent which are responsible for polluting the environment by transmitting different kinds of pathogens. Proper systems of spraying in the environment i.e. houses, parks and the other areas should be put into operation.
Over crowding is the burning concern due to the massive migration of people. People living in small houses suffer from unhygienic conditions related to their housing or food. Members of that area should recover it by mutual contributions and efforts in collaboration with the superior authorities. Houses and working places should have enough spaces for their workers and the inhabitants. So that there is a minimum tendency for diseases to be transmit by close interaction. Last but not least, environment leaves its upshots on our health but we have to choose between a healthy or detrimental atmosphere by self effort and responsibility.

We recently reviewed a large number of research articles published (MEDLINE) between 1970 and March 2011 and found that prolonged TV watching can lead to either Cardiovascular Disease, TYPE 2 DIABETES or DEATH. There is direct proportionality between the number of hours spent on watching TV and the outcome as morbidity or mortality.

It is therefore a professional responsibility of the medical/paramedical professionals to warn the patients, especially from industrialized societies, to be aware of this hazard.

Sedentary life style is already known as an independent risk factor of cardiovascular disease, stroke by causing enhanced atherosclerosis.

Behind the occurrence of panic attack there is a series of events which entails intolerable body indicators and shattering thoughts. People who undergo from the experience of panic attack infer body symptoms like dizziness, heart palpitations, and tragic thoughts. In the panic cycle, the primary stage is Initial stimulus. Initial stimulus can be an occasion or a circumstance that flashes the panic cycle like under breathing.  Even in an unconscious state of such kind of experience we begin to worry about that stimulus, worrying thoughts like I am starting to get dizzy and these thoughts leads us to the next phase which is called as Physiological arousal. When physiological arousal is triggered it incorporates signs like fast heartbeat, increased respiration, slow digestion, prompt sweating, and muscular tension and during such conditions one feels uneasy. Basically human body is programmed to construe any possible risk as a threat that we need to fight or run off, this is why due to worrying thoughts such signs arise. Consequently to this phase the next stage is thinking, catastrophic thoughts. This phase adds to the fight-or-flight grounding all the more like this is the end I am going to die now, I am getting mad, I am going to have a heart attack etc. and this phase results into a heightened physiological arousal. When our body digs up the significance that we are in huge risk it discharges enormous quantity of adrenaline, and strengthens the catastrophic thoughts even more and it boosts the physical symptoms and finally it terminates in an advanced panic attack. Now the basic and key fact is to chuck out its destructive effects and cut it short. In order to get rid from it one needs to disrupt this panic cycle in its early stages. We need to have the capability of identifying and repeating our self that panic symptoms are not risky and do not direct to anything disastrous. It is right, they can be scratchy but they cannot become the source of enduring physical harm. A panic itself cannot cause heart breakdown and some other detrimental things wrongly perceived by different individuals such as suffocation, getting faint, going crazy, and loosing control. One has to find out to substitute catastrophic thoughts with pragmatic ones. For this purpose at the start, we require recognizing of our catastrophic thoughts which comes to our mind in answer to the physical feelings of panic like, I am going to make a scene, I am going to act foolish etc. Secondly, one needs to ask him/her self about the realism of such thoughts, challenge their soundness with asking some questions like did they truly happen actually in our past life? If we got panicked what happened at that similar situation? What are the objective medical details? Finally, make an effort to replace them with more practical ones. Like if we feel, I am going to pass out because of dizziness, and then try to replace it with more realistic one, like I am in the early stages of panic, that’s why I am feeling so no one ever passed out as a result of panic and this will shutdown in the end. Believe that after a while, it will shift.

Regardless of the fact that the modern world is benefiting from advancements in technology leading to increased productivity and improved quality of life, the price is being paid partly by the generation of a sedentary society that spends much of its time in cars, at computer stations, and in front of televisions and video screens.

Medical professionals and public health and community leaders continue their extraordinary efforts to endorse increased physical activity through venues that range from casual walks to participation in organized sports, and health care providers need to support these efforts for their patients in regard to optimizing the benefits of participation while minimizing the small but potential associated risks.

The importance of exercise and sports were recognized by the ancient Greeks thousands of years ago and a large volume of evidence from research demonstrates explicit evidence that exercise and physical activity confer health.

Physical inactivity is now recognized as an independent risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease. In the face of these events, however, only a small proportion of people worldwide involve in adequate physical activity. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has indicated that approximately 31% of adult Americans participate in recommended levels of physical activity, and almost 40% report no regular leisure time physical activity whatsoever.
