Physical Wellness involves maintaining a healthy quality of life that allows us to get through our daily activities without undue fatigue or physical stress. Physical wellness is not only the absence of illness, but also living a thriving, active life. Adopting healthful habits (i.e., routine medical exams, immunizations, a balanced diet, daily exercise, etc.) while avoiding or minimizing risky behaviors (i.e. tobacco, drugs, alcohol, etc.) are also included in this dimension.
Sometimes there may be limitations and factors beyond our control (like access to resources, physical ability, comfort level, financial state, and perceptions of healthcare) that impact the ability of individuals to participate in healthy habits. It is important to advocate for access to wellness resources within our communities so that we can all better our physical well-being.
At Student Wellness, we understand that current systems that address physical fitness prioritize certain kinds of bodies, and we want to help students reach their own, individual physical wellness goals.
Enhance your physical health by taking advantage of resources offered by Student Wellness and around campus.
