What can I do to improve my physical health?

Being active regularly has countless benefits for our physical and mental health.

Good physical health can be seen simply as our body functioning at its peak performance.

Furthermore physical activity enriches our concentration, allowing improved performance at work and enhances that special feel-good factor increasing happiness and energy levels.

  • Exercise. The body needs to be physically active. We must take time out of the day to exercise to keep our body healthy.
  • Eat healthilyDiet is hugely important in fuelling our body. We need to eat regularly and we need to eat nutritiously. Being careful what we eat by avoiding sugars and fatty foods that make it harder for our body to function optimally.
  • RestThis helps our body recover after hard work, heavy exertion and during difficult times. It is a highly important aspect of physical activity which allows your body to recuperate to grow stronger. Without this excessive demands can lead to burnout. 
  • Hygiene. Good personal hygiene helps protect against illness and infection and definitely makes you a nicer person to be around!
  • Wellbeing. Negative emotions and extreme stress can tire our body and makes it easier to catch an illness. Staying emotionally well keeps us in peak condition.
  • Avoid smoking, alcohol and recreational drugs or substances.
