Physical Well-Being

Physical well-being is the ability to maintain a healthy and balanced life without physical limitations, physical stress and excessive fatigue.

Our physical well-being refers to the physical condition of our body, whether it is maintaining a healthy weight, good posture, well-functioning organs, or the ability to perform normal daily tasks without exhaustion or discomfort.

Physical well-being can also refer to the absence of disease or infection, but these are not the only things to consider.

Physical dimension

The physical dimension encompasses a range of healthy behaviours, including adequate exercise, proper nutrition and avoiding harmful habits such as drug and alcohol abuse. It means learning about and recognising the symptoms of disease, having regular medical check-ups and protecting yourself from injury and damage. Developing such healthy habits today will not only add years to your life, but also improve the enjoyment and quality of those years.
