Physical

Recognizing the need for physical activity, healthy foods, and sleep.

The physically well person eats when hungry and selects a varied and nutritionally balanced diet. S/he also gets an adequate amount of sleep, engages in moderate to vigorous exercise 3-5 times a week, gets routine medical check-ups appropriate to his or her age and risk factors, and takes safety precautions.

Physical Wellness—Self-Assessment

  • Am I exercising regularly?
  • Is my diet balanced?
  • Do I get 6-8 hours of sleep on average/night?
  • Do I practice moderation in all areas of my life?
  • Am I safe when it comes to my sexual interactions?
