Taking care of your wellbeing in relation to health is about focusing on the things you can manage and making the choices that work for you.
Protective health behaviours can assist both our physical health and mental wellbeing. Evidence suggests that often intentions of implementing protective health behaviours are high, but enacting on these behaviours is low.

It’s important to create a healthy balance of behaviours to help maintain our wellbeing. Take a look at this healthy wellbeing balance resource to help you think about how to create this balance through achievement, connections and enjoyment.
