This term’s Fletcher House Challenge is focusing on Physical Wellness.

Physical Wellness is having vibrant physical health and the prevention of disease in your body. Aspects of physical health include how you move your muscles through exercise and their capacity to stretch. Your daily and weekly rest patterns are also crucial to healing and being physically energised.

Some extra activities to increase Physical Wellness are:
