Five Dimensions of Health: Physical

This dimension focuses on the importance of moderate daily physical activity, proper nutrition, maintaining a healthy weight, getting recommended preventive screenings (based on age, gender and health history) and managing chronic conditions to prevent them from progressing.

Physical activity is one of the most effective ways to improve and maintain your health. Research shows that physical activity lowers the risk for many chronic conditions (e.g., diabetes, heart disease, obesity and bone and joint problems); improves mood; and boosts energy. Start small, with an activity you enjoy, and consider engaging a partner to help keep you accountable to your activity goals and provide emotional support along the way.
