Tips for Physical Wellness

Look for ways to integrate exercise and physical activity in your daily routine. Start small by taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Choose the parking space furthest away from the door. Avoid circling around until you find a close spot.
Think about what you are putting into your body. Aim for a balanced and varied diet that includes lots of unprocessed, high-fiber foods that are low in saturated fats (e.g., fruits, vegetables, whole grains). Drink a lot of water. Avoid sugary juices and soda.
Surround yourself with positive messages and role models. Spend time around people who feel good about their bodies and treat them with respect. Hang inspirational quotes and avoid over-exposure to unrealistic media messages about how our bodies should look.

Breathe :
To release tension in your body and combat stress. Relax your muscles and take a deep breath in, hold it for a couple of seconds, then slowly exhale. Practice this ten times in a row.

Maintain regular medical check-ups and learn self-examination techniques. Practice these techniques on a regular basis.

Vary your exercise program. Variety creates more fun in exercise and will also help you stick to the program.

Eat well. Eating well means learning to eat a variety of foods in the right quantities. Eating well involves changing your eating habits and eating foods that are lower in fat, sugar and sodium.

You cannot have physical wellness without intellectual, emotional, environmental, social, and spiritual wellness too.
