Physical Wellness encourages regular physical activities, proper nutrition and health care, such as exercise or sports, and personal hygiene. This type of physical activity discourages dependence on tobacco, alcohol and other drugs (prescription or street).
Taking responsibility for one's body is the core of physical wellness. It means making health a priority and actively maintaining a healthy diet and engaging in regular exercise. The physically well person is free of addictions, has the ability to identify physical and mental needs, and is aware of the body's limitations.
