Physical Wellness

Physical wellness refers to an individual's ability to tackle everyday tasks with ease, such as getting enough restful sleep and maintaining the energy to exercise regularly, avoiding unhealthy behaviors like misusing tobacco or alcohol and seeking medical care when needed.

Physically healthy people get adequate rest (7-9 hours per night), maintain a balanced diet, exercise 150 minutes of moderate intensity activity on most days each week and undergo regular medical check-ups. Furthermore, they take proactive steps to protect themselves against illness and injury by understanding their need for rest, nutrition, physical activity and sexual wellbeing.

Physical activity reduces the risk of various health conditions and diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure while increasing overall energy levels. Strengthening and toning muscles also decreases joint and back pain risk while building strength and endurance.

People who engage in regular physical activity tend to have more energy throughout the day, making it easier to complete daily activities without becoming exhausted. This has proven particularly effective for mental wellness as people with greater energy can better handle life's stresses and challenges.

To achieve physical wellness, individuals should begin by setting personal health goals and commit to being active most or all days of the week. Goals should be set that are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timebound and may include walking at work or taking public transit one stop earlier before walking home from their stops; including strength training exercises as part of workout plans may all contribute.
