The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health has now established a Special Issue on “Physical, Psychological, and Social Health in Youth through Exercise and Healthy Behaviours”.
Currently, the concept of health consists of different areas of an individual’s life, which can be grouped into physical, mental, and social domains (WHO, 1986). The physical domain refers to all those processes that are needed for the body to function and perform effectively (Capio et al., 2014). Mental health indicates a state of internal balance that allows people to perceive themselves and their lived environment in a proper manner (Galderisi et al., 2015). Social health includes all the interactions between a person and others within a community and how such interactions prompt—or hinder—personal and community growth (Waite, 2018). Each of these domains can be enhanced through healthy behaviours, which are particularly important at early ages. In fact, such behaviours learnt during youth are more likely to be maintained in adulthood and elderly life (Telama et al., 2013).
With this Special Issue, we wish to present works aimed at enhancing one or more health domains in youth through behavioural strategies and active habits.
