Dr. Sunil Gouraha, Caroline Satur

The greatest wealth is health. Good health is life's greatest blessing. The groundwork of all happiness is health. John F. Kennedy rightly said - “Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity. Wellness is the complete integration of body, mind and spirit. In this research study the investigators found the best prescription for a healthy lifestyle by focusing on health, fitness and well-being of persons. To achieve these aim 240 students from CBSE schools and CG schools of Bilaspur city in Chhattisgarh were chosen randomly and divided into two groups of 120 girls and 120 boys each. To test the students’ health, fitness and wellness level and analyse the data the Naga Bhushan Goud(D U 2008) was adopted and Mean, SD, and ‘t-test’ were used. It was concluded that girls proved to be not only more conscious about health, fitness and wellness but were also healthier and fitter than boys. The calculated t-value was 2.984. In the same way CBSE students possessed better health, fitness and wellness awareness than CG students. The table value showed 1.97 at 0.5 level.
