Focus on Your Body

Taking care of your body is essential for your physical health, and it’s closely linked with many other aspects of your well-being. This dimension focuses on the importance of moderate daily activity, proper nutrition, maintaining a healthy weight, preventive care and managing chronic health conditions. Research shows that physical activity lowers the risk of many chronic conditions (diabetes, heart disease, obesity and bone and joint problems). It can also improve your mood and boost your energy.
