Physical Wellbeing Tools for Change Makers

When you stop to think about what physicality means, you probably go straight to thoughts about your body, diet, and exercise. However, physicality is much more than just the basic care of the human body. It includes anything and everything that impacts your physical body, environment, and vitality.
