Quality of life, physical education and health

María Ángeles Hernando Sanz


Quality of life is a challenge for individuals and for society in general, since it defines certain fundamental elements of life in society that must be taken into account when establishing our common welfare as human beings.

Physical education is a highly efficacious pedagogical instrument for developing healthy patterns of conduct to favour greater quality of life. It must be performed regularly and systematically for the health benefits it gives, as it permits one to face life, and living together in society in general, with a positive attitude. In short, physical exercise should be regarded as a form of culture that should be incorporated in daily life, especially in view of the fact that human nature is dynamic.
