A key aspect of security is your physical health and how you take measures to keep yourself safe and well. Although this is related to adopting a healthy lifestyle (which we cover in the Health dimension), this section focuses more specifically on safety and preventive care practices.
Prevention starts at home. Don’t take unnecessary risks. Follow safety guidelines. Pay attention to your physical health and take appropriate steps to address symptoms or complaints as they arise.
Self-care and prevention also include wise use of healthcare resources. Know when you should see a healthcare provider. Get necessary care, including regular healthcare checkups and recommended healthcare screenings.
