Tips on physical wellbeing

Avoiding preventable illness, feeling energetic and ready to take on your day – whatever physical wellness means to you, there are things you can do to get there

Feel well, do well

Feeling well means making choices to improve health, avoid preventable disease and feeling like you are fit enough to take on your day. There are lots of ways to get healthier and feel better - and you can start with small, positive changes. Here's our tips to improve your physical wellbeing.

Getting enough sleep

Being well rested is good for the mind and the body. Getting enough sleep will make you feel good and help you make better decisions.

Eat well

We’re all very busy and it often seems easier to pick up a ready meal or order in. But when this becomes habit, we aren’t fuelling our bodies to perform their best. Plan your meals, batch cook and you’ll find you’re getting your five fruits and vegetables in no time. Choosing the right meals can be confusing, that's why it's helpful to use apps like My Fitness Pal - which keeps a track of your meals and exercise. 

Move your body

Exercise is good for the mind and body. Just 20 minutes of exercise a day could make the world of difference. Start with a walk and work your way up. 

Drink plenty of water

Drinking enough water will give you more energy, help you think more clearly and aid digestion. Keep a bottle to hand whenever you’re out and about. There's some great apps to remind you to drink more water - we like Hydro Coach.

When in doubt, leave it out

There are habits we all have that aren’t good for us. Smoking, drinking, eating lots of meat are just some of them – none of these things do our bodies good. So if you’re not sure it’s doing you any good, try and cut down.

And that's not all - there's lots of useful tips to improve your physical wellbeing online. If you're struggling to find your physical wellbeing - get in touch with us. Together we can help you put your best foot forward.
