... Physical development is influenced by factors: Genetics; Health condition; Environmental status; Life style. Besides, the degree of development is also affected by each individual's ability to regulate these factors [18]. Consciousness is described as "a state of understanding and realizing something" [19], which is closely related to the individual's thoughts, memories, emotions, etc. Consciousness can not only transmit information, but also generate continuously changed and meaningful information according to individual needs, thus allowing individuals to act autonomously [20]. ...

Ethnic minority manpower is a component of manpower, with the criteria of physical strength, mental power, and spirit power of the labor force. The article aims to analyze the current state of awareness of ethnic minority people about the IR4, the effects of the IR4 on physical strength, and the issue of physical development for ethnic minority people in Vietnam in the context of the IR4. The study conducted a survey with 3060 ethnic minority people from 2 ethnic minority groups in 9 provinces of Vietnam. The results of data analysis show that people's awareness of the IR4 has increased, helping people to improve their awareness of the effects of the Industrial Revolution 4.0 on the physical strength of ethnic minority people through which the consciousness of physical factors and factors affecting the physical development of ethnic minority people has also increased. In order to increase physical strength for ethnic minority people, it is necessary to have solutions to increase people's awareness of IR4 as well as its effect on physical strength. Based on the research results, we propose a number of policies to develop the physical strength of ethnic minorities in Vietnam.
... According to [52], mental and physical health is interrelated and constitutes health in proximity [54]. Hence, health develops in an external environment (societal) [55]; therefore, social relationships and happiness and life satisfaction are termed as well-being [56]. Thus, to constitute a scale of health and well-being, we reviewed previous scales that have included the components of health and well-being together. ...

There is an increasing acknowledgment of the added value obtained by integrating technological efforts to engage employees round the clock for organizational productivity. Hyperconnectivity is the demand of time for competitive advantage in businesses, but studies on its impact on the health and well-being of the employees have been neglected in academic research. Hence, in this study, we investigated the effect of hyperconnectivity on health and well-being, and in moderating the effect of work-to-family conflict and job demand control imbalance on the health and well-being of the office employees. An online questionnaire survey was used to collect data from 410 office employees working in the oil and gas industry in Malaysia. Respondents were approached through the LinkedIn forum. Statistical tests, principal component analysis, structural equation modeling, and path analysis were conducted. It is found that hyperconnectivity has a negatively insignificant effect on health and well-being. In addition, hyperconnectivity significantly strengthens the negative effect of job demand control imbalance (22%) and work-to-family conflict (24%) on health and well-being. It is concluded that hyperconnectivity decreases health and expedites other psychosocial hazards related to the health and well-being of the employees. Urgent measures should be taken to reduce unnecessary and frequent online notifications, messages, emails, and phone calls, both during and off-working hours. In this way, the effect of job demand control imbalance and work-to-family conflict can be reduced on the health and well-being of the office employees. Considering the negative consequences of hyperconnectivity, this problem should be addressed in health and safety policies in organizations. Future studies can investigate the effect of hyperconnectivity on job demands and control separately.
... Physical health is defined as an organism's normal function at all levels, the standard path of biological processes required for individual survival and reproduction, the dynamic equilibrium of an organism and its processes with the external milieu, involvement in socially beneficial work, the performance of essential social functions, the absence of illnesses, painful situations, and the body's capacity to adapt to the constantly changing environment (Koipysheva, 2018). ...

Managing health and well-being issues can be challenging for college students. Alternative supports, such as online programs, have been identified as cost-effective and efficient methods of providing inclusive support to college students, removing numerous barriers to health and well-being promotion. The article summarized a novel, evidence-based approach to developing an online health and well-being program. The program is based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), the positive emotion, engagement, relationships, meaning, and accomplishments (PERMA) construct, and the analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation (ADDIE) model. It discusses future directions in the evaluation, assessment, and documentation of the fitness-for-purpose process. Keywords: well-being, online health, physical health, college students, PERMA, CBT, ADDIE
... Physical health can be defined as normal functioning of the body at all levels; a normal course of biological processes that ensures individual survival and reproduction; a dynamic balance between the body's functions and the environment; participation in social activities and socially useful work; performance of basic social functions; the absence of diseases, painful conditions, and changes; and the body's ability to adjust to the constantly changing conditions of the external environment, [17] (p. 603), whereas mental health can be defined as "a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities and is able to cope with the normal stresses of life, work productively and fruitfully, and make a contribution to his or her community" [18]. ...

The purpose of the study is to analyze the correlations between two clearly defined forms of non-standard employment (self-employment and mandate contract) and workers’ health. The study also addressed such variables as gender, age, length of service, and the reason for employment (voluntary vs. non-voluntary). The research was carried out in Poland in 2020 using the CATI method (a telephone interviewing technique), and it covered a sample of 200 workers (100 self-employed and 100 working under a mandate contract). Most of the respondents declared that their form of employment did not affect their health. However, the statistical analysis showed significant differences in health status between the self-employed and those working on a mandate contract. Self-employed respondents experienced mental health impacts more often, whereas those working under a mandate contract more frequently declared that their physical health was affected. The length of service was only important for mental health, having a negative impact on it. The respondents’ age and gender turned out to be statistically insignificant, which is in contradiction to many previous research findings. The inability to choose one’s form of employment resulted in worse physical health. These findings demonstrate the importance of certain variables that were not prioritized in previous studies and emphasize the need to clearly define what non-standard and precarious forms of employment are, as well as revealing new correlations between the studied categories and providing directions for further research.
... Professor V.Yu. Lebedinsky proposed defining the concept of "physical health of students" as a person's initially genetically determined motor ability (physical fitness), which undergoes, during his life, marked changes in the process of morphological and functional adaptation (physical development) to changing environmental conditions and life [18]. ...
... As defined by Professor V.Yu. Lebedinsky (2018, p. 603), physical health is "initial genetically determined human motor capacity (physical fitness), undergoing marked changes in the process of morphofunctional adaptation (physical development) to changing environmental conditions and standards of living" [17]. Therefore, for the prevention and correction of existing diseases of students, first of all, it is extremely important to evaluate this two-component health system. ...
... The quality of their education is defined by not only the subject content of the pedagogic process but also the level of health and working efficiency of the student youths, which, in the end, influences the development of science and technology, as well as social and cultural progress. There was growing attention towards the healthy lifestyle of the students in recent years, which is connected with the concern of the society about the health of the specialists graduating from higher education institutions, and with the increase in sickness rates in professional education and further reduction of working efficiency [7]. ...

Purpose: to analyze dynamic of physical condition, considering sex (females) and age of the tested, living in region with unfavorable ecology. Material: we studied pre school age girls (n=1580, age 4-7 years). In the research we did not include children with chronic diseases, who were under observation. We tested schoolgirls (n=3211, age 7-17 years) and girl students (n=5827, age 17-21 years, 1-4 years of study. Girl students were divided into five age groups: from 17 to 21 years. All participants lived in conditions of Eastern Siberia (Irkutsk). This region is characterized by unfavorable ecology and climate geographic characteristics. Results: in dynamic of physical condition of pre-school girls, schoolgirls and students we marked out three substantial periods of it characteristics' changes. Age 7-8 years is critical (transition from 1st to 2nd stage). The least values of these characteristics are found in older (after 17-18 years) ages. In students we observed relative stabilization of these indicators. Conclusions: the received results shall be considered in building physical education training process in pre-school educational establishments, secondary comprehensive schools and higher educational establishments.
The article presents a study of health indicators in young males studying at the university, differentiated according to the volume of their weekly motor activity-more than 8 hours per week, from 6 to 8, from 2 to 4 hours per week. The highest values of the health index were registered in sporting students, and in young males attending extra-curricular recreational physical education classes, the smallest ones - in young males attending only compulsory physical education classes, as well as in those students engaged in motor activity of increased volume. The detected differences in the physical health indicators stipulate a differentiated approach to the organization and maintenance of the compulsory curricular and extra-curricular forms of physical education of university students. Thus, it should be noted that the low functionality of the body of students, additionally engaged in health-improving physical culture, prevents them from participating in competitive activities, but at the same time, the high level of motivation makes it possible to involve them into participation in competitions by selecting the appropriate means and methods of pedagogical influence, aimed to solve the problem of involvement of students into the mass recreational and sports movement.
