A psychological contribution to the notion of physical health

Written by Jeszenszky Csilla, Jeszenszky Ferenc-Árpád

What does it mean to be healthy? What else is needed beyond the absense of disease? What is our attitude to our own state of health? Our study is interested in these questions. We used a questionnaire evaluating the point of view of students from Transsylvania and Hungary. We found that Trassylvanian students are more worried about their health, on the other hand they are more passive, while Hungarian students are more conscious and active. Our results could be the basis of other studies; their utility is promising.
