Vitality is said to be our activity. Defined as a state of being strong and active from the Latin vitalitas (vital). The Energy we have for life. Is it a necessary rule for the continuance of life? Maybe an inherent aspect in all living things, a part of our evolution. Our mortality takes effect from our genes. Those sufferings from our birth are imprinted in our DNA. As such is life, we make choices affecting our morbidity. A flip of a coin some say toward an individual’s diseased state.
If we know what vitality is not, since it is so individual, then perhaps it is possible to provide some synapsis of what that means for everyone around the globe.
We can shed light on the subject and hopefully, individuals will gain a foundational terminology and understanding that can help them navigate the dangers and struggles of life and mental illness. Get your copy of The Merck Manual
