Some questions to ask yourself to gauge your Physical Wellbeing:

  • Do I engage in cardiovascular exercise 3-5 times per week for at least 30 minutes?

  • Do I engage in strength training/ resistance exercise 2-3 times per week?
  • Do I eat a nutritious diet?
  • Do I get 7-8 hours of sleep on average/night?
  • Do I practice moderation in all areas of my life?
  • Am I safe when it comes to my sexual interactions?
  • How often do I binge drink? (Males: 5+ drinks in about 2 hours, Females: 4+ drinks in about 2 hours)
  • Do I use tobacco products?
  • Do I use illicit drugs (e.g. marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy)?
