These were my ratings in Unit 3:
Based on your reflections, and on a scale of 1 to 10 (ten being optimal wellbeing), where do you rate your A-physical wellbeing, B-spiritual well-being, C-psychological well-being? Why?
Rating (B and C) is hard, which to me means the low scored are deserved, because I allow so much fluctuation. I no doubt have valid reasons to be upset, but I would ideally like to see that I handle things better, or more consistently.
Here are my ratings today:
Yes my scores changed J Physically, I have been exercising more and I am getting in better shape, I can see the muscles tone in my arms again, and I can run a lot longer now. I still have some progress to make, I would like to see my muscle tone in my legs more J, then maybe I will give myself a 9. When I look like Jillian Michaels I will be a 10! Haha! Spiritually, they have not changed, I am in the same place, I have better days than others when I am more spiritually aware, but I have days I am not. Psychologically, I think this is where I have improved the most. I have really been better within my mind, I have found my mental strength. I do still have rough days, but I am learning what makes it a rough day. When I don’t sleep well, I have anxiety and am much more mentally weak.
Here is my week three goals and activities:
Develop a goal for yourself in each area (physical, spiritual, psychological).
A: Exercise, three times a week minimum.
B: Pray more, ask for the help I need.
C: Control my thoughts, stay positive and hopeful.
What activities or exercise can you implement in your life to assist in moving toward each goal?
For the exercise, I have looked up local activities and found swimming and running groups I can attend. We just bought an elliptical machine and home gym, so I need to use them :)... For the praying, it is all within myself, I need to build on my relationship with God. For the controlling my thoughts, this is also internal, but there are some other tools I can use, possibly seek counseling. The tools I learn in this class and all the others are very helpful, and making more of an effort to use them would help me tremendously.
I HAVE!!!!!!!!!!!! I do exercise a lot more, mostly three times a week, but some weeks only once or twice. I still have work to do, but I am doing wayyyy better. I have not started praying more, but I will keep working towards it. I have really learned how to gain control of my thoughts and have been staying positive and hopeful!
This has been one of the most influential classes I have taken in my degree program, I am kinda glad it was the last class I had to take. I learned so much and I will be carrying it over to assist others for sure! Making the kind of changes I want to has been hard, but I have made some change, and I am proud of what I have accomplished, and motivated to keep moving towards my goals.
