The schools of today are battling-with indiscipline, lack of student motivation, irregu-larity, missing parental support, over obsession with tech-gadgets, depression and suicidal ten-dencies etc. The workplace also requires flexi-bility, creativity, social intelligence and other soft skills and these components cannot be overloold. There is a need for schools to incorporate pur-suit of health, personal growth, and improved quality of life in the curriculum and teach stu-dents how on live a balanced life. Students need to care for their mind, body, and spirit. Well-being itself can be understood as a sus-tainable state of positive mood and attitude, re-silience and satisfaction with self, relationships and experiences at school. Rather physical, so-cial, emotional, moral, spiritual and aesthetic development are an integral component of any student's general wellbeing. The pursuit of a healthy childhood, happier adulthood, and improved quality of life relies on living a balanced life. Students could take care of certain factors that influence our state of wellness, including nutrition, physical activity, stress-cop-ing methods, good relationships, and career ori-entation, their success rate in life would be higher. Universal access to early childhood educa-tion and care and school education is an impor-tant foundation for learning and health and well-being. Physical Education is an integral com-ponent of education today. Sports and games form an integral part of curriculum as it is es-sential to lay foundation of a sound mind in a sound body. The National Sports Policy, 1984 was the first move towards developing a conducive policy framework for the development and pro-motion of sports in the country. Since then a lot of emphasis has been laid on making sports in-tegral part of curriculum. Once the student gets identified as a national achiever, for his advanced training needs and infrastructural requirement, the state needs to step in, in terms of provision of high quality development of effective, physi-cal training instructors. Those of us who participate in regular phys- ical activity do so partly to improve the current and future level of health.

Life experiences as well as more formal struc-tures enhances mental health. Intellectual well-ness includes both a personal commitment to life-long learning and an interest in sharing one's knowledge with others. Intellectual wellness can help with positive thinking and decision-making, and enable an individual to use creative problem-solving to overcome barriers and difficulties. The ability to control emotions so that you feel comfortable expressing them and can ex-press them appropriately adds to emotional health.
