Monthly Spotlight - Physical Wellness Month
April is Physical Wellness Month
Physical Wellness is the ability to maintain a quality of life that allows you to get the most out of your daily activities without undue fatigue or physical stress. Physical wellness can be acheived through regular physical activity, a nutritious diet, adequate sleep, and practicing safe behaviors. Spring is a great time of year to be outdoors jogging, walking, biking or playing with your kids or pets and striving for your best physical wellness!
