A key component of sustainable socioeconomic growth and development is healthy living. Healthy people are better able to handle life's problems and enjoy higher standards of living. This study attempts to emphasize the value of health and the media's function as a significant social institution for fostering a healthy lifestyle and awareness. The authors made a point of new media can play a role in promoting healthy living by providing access to information and resources that can help people make healthier choices. For example, people can use their smartphones or other digital devices to track their physical activity, access healthy recipes, and connect with others who are also interested in living a healthy lifestyle. However, it's important to use new media in moderation and to be mindful of the potential negative effects it can have on physical and mental health. Prolonged use of screens and devices can lead to issues such as eyestrain, neck and back pain, and sleep disturbances. It can also contribute to feelings of social isolation and disconnection, as well as negative impacts on mental health.
