Exercise and physical movement can help you reduce stress chemicals and maintain or build cardiovascular health, strength, balance, and flexibility.
What you eat and drink fuels your body and brain and influences your general health and wellbeing.
Supportive relationships allow you to give and receive help and experience care, belonging, and understanding.

Boundaries around work and other demands help create space for rest and sustain energy over time in demanding contexts.

Your ability to tolerate and manage strong emotions helps you use healthy coping strategies, maintain important relationships, achieve goals, and work effectively on problem-solving.
How you approach and engage with challenges influences how effectively you can cope with difficulties and hardships, solve problems, and achieve important goals.
