Personal Healthy Living Plan

1. Physical

a. I will develop a workout schedule for me to do throughout the summer time and for the rest of my time here in college.

b. There are so many reasons to exercise regularly (better health, weight loss, feeling happier all around), and so many reasons to just, well, not (happy hour, errand-filled days, vacations). If the latter reasons are getting the best of you, here are four simple ways to stick to a workout routine. http://www.fitsugar.com/How-Keep-Workout-Routine-22523101

c. My state of change would be preparation.

d. I will be doing this scheduling within the next few weeks or month. I will start by writing out the schedule and do specific workouts each day to target different parts of my body. In doing so, I will also write out stretching and cool down workouts as well to balance out the work intake.

e. Some barriers that I might face are feeling lazy, in taking the wrong foods which will lead me to not wanting to work out and negativity from people around me. They way that I will overcome these barriers is to avoid having the feeling of laziness, not in taking the wrong types of food and to not listen to any negativity that comes out of others around me.

f. The way I will commit this plan is by thinking of the end result; having the satisfaction of being in control of my body and proving people’s negativity wrong.

2. Spiritual

a. My goal for spirituality will be to starting going back to church and participating in meditations.

b. The benefits of meditation are manifold because it can reverse your stress response, thereby shielding you from the effects of chronic stress. When practicing meditation, your heart rate and breathing slow down, your blood pressure normalizes, you use oxygen more efficiently, and you sweat less. http://stress.about.com/od/tensiontamers/p/profilemeditati.htm

c. My state of change would be preparation.

d. I will do meditations at least three times a week or when needed to relieve stress. I will start going back to church when I go back home on Sunday and this will continue for the rest of my time there and when I come back to school.

e. Some barriers that I might face are not having the time to fit meditation in when I have a busy work schedule and being unable to go to church if I work on Sundays. Ways that I can counter these barriers are rescheduling my work hours around the time me and my family would be going to church and putting aside time for meditation to relieve all the stress from work and school.

f. The way that I will commit to this plan is by thinking of how less stress I will be if I did meditation and by going to church with my family will help create a strong bond between us that we haven’t had in quite a long while.

3. Social

a. My goal is to create a strong friendship with those who I care for the most; my friends and my family.

b. You’re shy or lack confidence, talking to people can be very stressful. That's why it's a good idea to work to improve your social skills. Once you feel comfortable interacting with people in a social setting, you'll see the benefits immediately. You'll meet new friends, you'll be exposed to new experiences, and you'll feel 100 percent better about yourself. Here are some simple steps to help you feel comfortable in public. http://www.wikihow.com/Become-Sociable

c. My state of change would be action.

d. I expect that I will start be more social with my friends now that school is about to finish. I also intend to be social with my immediate family; spending more time with them, talking and visiting them now that I will be staying home.

e. Some barriers that I might face are being unable to hang out with friends because of my busy schedule or because their busy schedule and being unable to visit my family because I have no transportation to get there. How I will...
