Long Speech on Health and Fitness in English
Given below is a long 500 words speech on health and fitness for the students of Class 7 to Class 12. This speech on importance of health and fitness can be referred by the students to prepare for their examination.
Greetings everyone! Today I have been provided with an opportunity to deliver a speech on fitness and how our health plays a major role in maintaining our mental as well as physical fitness. Since we are in a generation where everything around us is so technologically advanced and fast, we often get too dependent on machines and technology. Due to our fast-paced and busy schedule, we give less importance to physical fitness and mental health. As a result, all we have become is physically inactive and lazy. But with this are we all heading towards a healthy lifestyle? Sadly, the answer is no. Gone are the days where we used to walk to the nearest stores and took the stairs of our buildings. Also, we are more addicted to eating junk foods and order outside food. Therefore, this has given rise to several diseases starting from cardiovascular diseases, obesity, depression and anxiety.
Although there have been several medical technologies and treatments that can get you out of it, all it takes to stop this thing is self-control and a healthy lifestyle. As the saying goes, ‘Health is Wealth’, an individual can only enjoy all the valuables of life if he is both physically and mentally healthy. The health of an individual plays a major role in his/her life and must be taken care of. In spite of the busy schedule, it is our responsibility to prioritise our health and involve in some kind of physical activity. Physical exercises need not be always strenuous, it can also be done in the form of walking, cycling, yoga and meditation that brings calmness to both mind and body.
But is doing physical activity is enough to stay healthy? Well, no. Most of the role to keep us healthy is played by the food we intake. It will be of no use if we intake junk and unhealthy food rich in sugar and cholesterol level and try to be healthy. Apart from exercising, it is equally important to drink plenty of water to keep ourselves hydrated. The level of fitness totally depends on the amount of activity our body can perform and the food we consume. Thus, inculcating a habit of eating healthy such as fruits, green vegetables and essential vitamins is really important.
I hope this health is wealth speech was really helpful in motivating you all to stay physically and mentally healthy. So, it’s high time that we really put our health over everything and take proper care of it. Lastly, I would like to thank all of you for being here today and listening to my speech.

A very warm welcome to everyone present here. Today, I am here to deliver a speech on health and hygiene. These two are strongly associated with each other because it is very important to maintain a hygienic surrounding to stay healthy. This can be done by maintaining cleanliness and incorporating the habit of hygiene in us.
Living an unhygienic lifestyle can lead to several skin diseases and infections. The health of a person determines how much a person is physically fit and active. When it comes to taking care of health, several factors come into notice which includes eating healthy food, doing regular exercises, having a proper sleep cycle and maintaining oral hygiene. We have been taught since our childhood days to brush our teeth twice a day and avoid eating sugary foods to prevent bad breath and cavity. But many of us often forget to inculcate these healthy habits in our daily life. Our daily schedule has become so busy that we often end up ignoring our health which in the long term affects our body.
We can start leading a healthy life by taking small steps towards it such as switching junk foods to fruits and vegetables, drinking plenty of water and walking every day for at least one hour. This, as a result, will help us concentrate well on our work and lead a life full of fitness.
