Health can be defined as the satisfactory well-being of a biological organism, e.g. free of disease or injury. Physical health is maintained through a balanced and nutritious diet, regular exercise and good sleep; these are also important for good mental health.

Health sciences are the disciplines involved in assessing and optimizing health.
