Wellness is a lifetime goal which is a balance between social, physical, and mental/emotional wellness.
It is important not to only be physically fit, but also to take care of your body by having regular check-ups. You need to listen to your body and If something does not feel right, have it checked out by a professional.
Your body type is part of your unique identity, just like your hair and eye color. Focus on exercises and eating habits as a way of maintaining your health and wellness--not a way to change who you are.
Body composition describes the percentages of fat, bone, muscle, and water in your body. A healthy body composition includes a lower percentage of body fat and a higher percentage of fat-free mass (meaning muscles, bones, and organs).
It is important to perform a warm up prior to any physical activity and cool down at the end of your activity/exercise/workout to prevent and reduce injuries during physical activity.
The most common injuries that occur during physical activity are muscle strains, muscle sprains, blisters, and shin splints.
Total wellness is important for the rest of your life so listen to your body.
