Diversity, Health & Wellness in your community
There are two types of social units in which living and nonliving things exist. These units could be smaller or larger and there a term that describes both unit’s collectivity which is known as community. The community could have something in common in the form of norms, religion, standards, or individuality. Communities also share some places that specifically cover the entire geographical area for example it could be a country, township, city, or locality or in cybernetic space that are helpful to maintain communication. Long-lasting relations that spread beyond instant genealogical connections also describe a sense of community (James, Nadarajah, Haive, & Stead, 2012).
A community has its assets and these are helpful to maintain the structure and growth of the community. It could be nothing that can maintain the development of the community. One of the most important assets of a community is the person who is living in it and has the ability to transform its structure. Then there are some physical structures and places including the school, church, hospital, library, center of recreation as well as a social club. These are the landmarks of the community so also important assets of it. Then public transportation, education institutes, communication centers, and different types of business are important and outstanding assets of the community.
One of the biggest challenges of a community is to maintain its surroundings and also make some developments without destroying it. People are making numerous education centers and transportation ways but while doing all these things the community is being destroyed. It is our responsibility to save the community from such challenges and it can be done in many ways. There must be opportunities to have an education of residents’, surfacing of completely new ideas, and gain buy-in early on. In this way, the community can be prevented from destruction and these are some biggest challenges of the community that needs solutions for the survival the community.
The community also faces a challenge if there is no source of earning for most of the individuals. Also, people having low income are rejected by the community so most of the unemployed people are there in my community and there is a need to overcome this situation. This one is the biggest challenge for my community because it ultimately affects the developmental level of the community. There must be structure orientation in the community, so the challenges will be overcome.
The most striking thing about the community is the difference between my community and the neighborhood. It is in the form of development, resources as well as education. All these things are lacking in my community. Though in some areas the ratio of these things is higher as compared to others when compared overall with neighborhood communities there are lacking resources. In this way my community is underdeveloped. This one is the most striking thing about my community.
There are some unexpected facts about my community too. My community is helpful to meet the need of most of the people living in there. The land is agricultural land and most people are using it as a resource to earn money. The condition of the weather is also in the favor of land so the agricultural profession is one of the main professions in my community and it is an unexpected thing. Community is one the place that carries the person individually, physically, mentally, and emotionally. My community provides space to carry all these things. There must be a suitable land that can carry the burden of your as well as others. My community is also helpful to reveal the gifts and talents of each and every type.
Successful communities give attention to aesthetics and my community is also one of them. It is having control over numerous things including the control on signs, lots of plants and trees in the street as well as on roadsides too and also protecting the historical places that are view able by most the people. It also encourage new construction in the form of transportation that fits in with the current community. So the aesthetic quality of my community is a positive and beautiful. As it encourages the tourist to come and visit, if it will be like ordinary one then no one would like to visit. So my community is unique so the rate of tourism is also high.
Health is the capability of a natural (biological) system to obtain, transform, distribute, allocate, and utilization of energy with extreme proficiency that is helpful to perform the functions on daily basis. Health is the condition or a feeling through which a person realizes that everything is going well and the body is enjoying it while you are working. This is a positive form of health and if these things doesn’t happen then it will be negative health. In this case, the body doesn’t allow you to work properly and demand more rest than usual. There must be a good diet and healthy routine for the positive condition of health.
If the health will be good then the body will be able to perform all kinds of work including physical, psychological, and social well-being, and not only the nonexistence of disease or illness. There is a strong relationship between health and community. If the community is well then the person will be healthy and if the community is not in the favor of health there will be a disturbance in work. In my community, the environmental condition is not in the favor of health. There is lots of pollution in the form of Nosie, air and water. Nosie pollution is increasing day by day because of the transportation system.
So it is not in the favor of health. From earlier till now there is a negative influence of the environment on health. As time is passing it is increasing and in this way, my community is not the healthy one. Air pollution is increasing because of the smoke produced by the transport and it is increasing lots of respiratory diseases. Before providing the facilities human health must be kept in mind and my community is lacking in this. There is need to solve these solutions that are not in the favor of health as well as community. These things are not only affecting human health but also effecting the health of the community. Community health depends upon its beauty and that is through plants and trees. Pollution is not in the favor of community beauty too so if it is not in the favor of the community how it can be in the favor of individuals living in that community?
There is a strong relationship between the community with diversity too. Diversity can be of any form. Like it could be in the form of different jobs, numerous plantations,s and ways of learning. So diversity is the range of different things and materials that collectivity forms a proper community. It is also the variability among living creatures from all foundations containing, entomb alia, extra-terrestrial, marine, and additional aquatic environments and the environmental multiplexes through which they are a portion; this contains diversity surrounded by species, among different species, and of ecosystems. All these things combine together and form a community.
By looking at the previous definition of community and compared with today, it is clear that my community is the diverse one. Let’s take the example of tourism, my community is full of tourists and people love to visit it. The question is why? The answer is because of its diversity. There are unique places to visit throughout the community and people from different culture lives there so it is diverse. So it encourages the tourist to come and visit, if it will be like ordinary one then no one would like to visit. So my community is unique and diverse so the rate of tourism is also high.
There are some recommendations that are helpful for the health and diversity of the community. There is a need to use Groovy Green Living. With the help of education, the green idea must be shared among the individuals living in the community. Try to create a healthy environment in your own home, in this way the whole community will be healthier. There is also a need to use your own voice on the issue that is in the favor of your community as well as your health.
The development in the community can take place if there will be resources for the development and these resources can be increased with the help of funding. If there will be more funding the community will be more diverse and healthier. You need to talk with the neighbors, friends, and family members that how the community can be improved, in this way more ideas will originate for the development of the community. There is a need to pass the information on the importance of a healthy community and it can be done with the help of education and communication. Communicate to different people who don’t have any idea about the health of the community. All these things are helpful in the improvement of the health and diversity of the community.
