Physical wellness is the ability to maintain a healthy quality of life that allows us to get the most out of our daily activities without excessive fatigue or physical stress. It is the recognition that our daily habits and behaviors have a significant impact on our overall health.
Adopting healthful habits like a balanced diet, regular movement or physical activity, and adequate sleep, will lead to optimal physical wellness and reduced risk of preventable chronic illness.
HEALTH & NUTRITION
Evidence shows that our nutritional intake can have a significant impact on both our mind and body health.
Learning how to identify and cook with fresh healthy ingredients helps us make choices that benefit our overall health and wellness; including a positive impact on moods and behavior.
SPORTS & FITNESS
Participating in sports and fitness activities enhances motor skills by increasing strength, coordination, flexibility, and balance.
It also promotes positive self-esteem, communication and other social skills, which can be used across all recreational and vocational settings

MINDFULNESS & MEDITATION
Research shows that mindfulness and meditation can reduce stress and symptoms associated with mild to moderate depression and anxiety. It can promote positive thinking and enhances resiliency.
Mindfulness training helps people to become more aware of their thoughts, feelings and body sensations, so that instead of being overwhelmed by them, they are better able to manage them.
Practicing mindfulness can give more insight into emotions, reduce stress, boost attention and concentration, and improve relationships.
