Wellness Corner: November is Physical Wellness Month at Uncommon!
Physical wellness is when we use exercise, healthy eating, and sleep to grow our minds and bodies for optimal health and functioning. As we become more aware of our physical wellness, we are learning to listen to our bodies. Physical wellness matters because it encourages principles of good health and knowledge, which affect behavior patterns that lead to a healthy lifestyle. It also promotes positive health habits that can help decrease our stress, lower risk of illness, and increase our energy.
Below are resources to get you and your family physically well!
