First of all, I would like to say thanks to my class teacher to give me such a big opportunity to speak on this occasion on health and fitness. It is the most special topic nowadays in this regularly deteriorating environment.

In real terms, health and fitness are two sides of the same coin means both are very necessary to live a healthy and happy life. Without proper health and fitness, one cannot have a feeling of physical, mental and social well being. It is the common understanding which everyone must follow throughout life for the wellness of their life and keep body and mind functioning in balance.


The real meaning of health and fitness involves the efficient and proper working of all the body systems such as heart, nervous system, kidney, liver, digestive system, brain, etc. A person with healthy functioning body organs is called a healthy and fit person. Being healthy and fit is not so easy in such a crowded and polluted environment. It is a big challenge for the whole human fraternity to maintain fitness together with technological improvement in the modern world. Whenever the topic of health and fitness is discussed, many more questions arising in our mind that how to be healthy and fit, what habits we should follow to be healthy and fit, etc.

The human body has lots of independently working organs however interdependent as well. If any of the organs suffer a problem, it affects other organs too and arises complications.

So, it arises a big question that how we can keep our internal organs safe and proper working in order to maintain our health and fitness. Following proper and timely daily routine with necessary physical exercises and healthy food on a daily basis is the way to maintain health and fitness.

Regular exercises tones up our body muscles keep skin fresh, keeps the spine straight and fit, regularize digestive system functioning, improves blood circulation to the whole body, keep body and mind in balance, etc.

Thus, we can say that exercise and proper nutrition regularly help a person to keep all his organs in absolute fitness. Exercise and healthy foods are the way to keep body and mind healthy as well as avoid health hazards and medication. Both are necessary for people of all ages. Here are some ways which can help us to stay fit and healthy for a long time:

Nowadays, people are so busy, they do not have much time because of their busy schedules. People involved in corporate businesses have to move very little or perform their tasks only by sitting. So they generally face lots of health problems like overweight, obese, laziness, body pain, idle, unmotivated, etc. Long term sitting activities may lead a person to various health disorders.

Speech 3

Very good morning to the respected teachers, my colleagues and other people gathered here. As we all know that we are here to celebrate this special occasion, I would like to speech over the topic of health and fitness. In this competitive and crowded world, everyone has forgotten to take care of their health. They start a run in the early morning (to earn money for their family) which only ends in the late night. People do not have a little bit of time for themselves. They only earn money, eat and sleep. They do not know that to keep this body healthy, we need to involve in the daily physical exercises and cleanliness of the body. There is a common saying that “health is wealth”. It is very true, it is only our good health that remains with us in our bad times and helps us to face all the challenges of life. Health is the most valuable and precious thing for every individual in life. Good health is the state of complete physical, mental, social and spiritual well being without any suffering.

Being a healthy and fit person requires a good natural environment, healthy living, healthy food, daily physical exercises, and personal cleanliness. All such things facilitate good health for a long time. On the other hand, an unhealthy environment because of overpopulation, industrialization, and pollution causes bad health and mental disturbance. Bad health always threatens life as it brings many dreadful diseases such as heart attack, cancer, hypertension, diabetes, hepatitis, AIDS, kidney failure, liver problems, etc.

Nowadays, people are suffering from various mental disorders because they are spending their full time racing to blindly earn money, earn fame, win the aim of life and achieve a big status in society.

Everyone’s life has been hectic because of the huge level of competition in each field. Earlier people were used to enjoying nature’s beauty and enjoying the different colors of life. But now, people are working in very stressful conditions without any satisfaction which is hindering physical and mental fitness thus people are suffering many diseases. Physical fitness and a healthy diet are very important for getting a healthy and tension free life. People should eat very simple and light food (rich in vitamins, minerals, and proteins) with green leafy vegetables, fruits, and milk. Food rich in fruits and fresh vegetables reduces the risk of cancer, cataract, diabetes, heart attack, etc. People should avoid eating fast foods, oily foods, soft drinks, and fatty foods. Everyone should follow good eating and exercise habits such as:

  • Eat breakfast at time and in large amount and light dinner 3 hrs before sleeping.
  • We should be a nibbler and not a foodie.
  • We should practice eating fresh salad with a meal.
  • We should not keep ourselves starve for a long time or overeat subsequently.
  • We should avoid fast foods and canned foods.
  • We should eat heart-friendly foods like yellow, orange and green vegetables and fruits.
  • We should reduce the intake of food and exercise more as age increases.
  • We should go for daily light and heavy physical exercises by keeping in mind the structure of the body.
  • Regular exercises enhance basic metabolic rate which increases absorption of digested food and burns extra body fat by improving vital organs functioning.
  • We should practice yoga and meditation at home on a daily basis.
  • We should go for proper sleep at the right time and follow early to bed early to rise regime. We should take care that; never sleep with stress, never sleep during the day, always drink warm milk before going to bed.

Thank You


Speech 4

Very good morning to everyone. I would like to speech on the topic of health and fitness at the celebration event of this special occasion. Nowadays, people do not take care of their health and do not realize the importance of their good health. As we all know that “Health is Wealth” however people following this regime are very less in number. Good health and fitness are very necessary to carry out all the daily routine tasks. Some people have a wrong consideration about being healthy means they understand that they are healthy if they are physically healthy, they never consider the health of their minds. Being healthy means a feeling of well being physically, mentally, socially and intellectually. Good health is not only to alleviate physical disorders, but it also means being mentally healthy.

An unhealthy mind leads a person towards an unhealthy body and vice versa. It is very necessary to balance the mental and physical health to enjoy life and nature’s beauty. Good mental health makes a person able to feel well-being with good inner strength. We all should know about how to take care of our bodies. Following the timely daily routine, exercise and eating proper healthy foods are the best ways to stay healthy and fit.

Taking food according to the body requirement, high in protein and vitamin and low in sugar, salt, fat, and alcohol are good for fitness. People should select and eat the right foods according to their body type that may provide the required energy to them. Healthy food energizes the body, keeps the person happy and provides a happy mind. On the other hand, poor nutrition makes a person weak, sad, angry, tired and worry which are not good for the mind.

Healthy foods and daily physical exercises are also necessary to keep hormones in balance. It reduces the depression level by improving mood and relieving anxiety. We should keep our minds busy in free time by playing crossword puzzles, calculating sums in the head, learning something new, etc. It is like a mental exercise to keep the mind peaceful and calm. We should take some time from our busy lifestyles and schedules to enjoy life and nature. We should follow all the best ways of ensuring our healthy and long life.
