Being physically active and limiting your sedentary behaviour every day is essential for your health and wellbeing I am physically active on most days of the week (5-7 days per week) I am physically active on some days (1-4 days per week) Physical activity is not a part of my weekly routine * 4. Limiting the amount of alcohol that you consume each day reduces your lifetime risk of alcohol related disease or injury, mental illnesses and liver damage On average I consume less than 2 drinks per day On average I consume 3-4 drinks per day On average I consume more than 5 drinks per day on 5 or more days per week * 5.
