Reflection Paper

1483 words - 6 pages

This semester Complementary Therapies gave me the opportunity to really evaluate my health on a holistic scale. I was able to see the areas of my life that were not as well balanced as I had assumed they were. Because of that I was able to choose the areas that needed the most attention and then work to improve on them. I chose to focus on the physical and the intellectual domains of wellness.
I chose the physical domain because since high school my activity level has gone down tremendously and I have kept all of my bad eating habits. In high school I was involved in a sport throughout the year and never had to worry about becoming out of shape. Because of my activity level I was able to eat whatever I wanted whenever I wanted because I was burning off all of the calories in practices. Coming to Mount Mercy I chose not to participate in any sports. While I do not regret this decision, I have started to notice the changes in my body tone. These changes have caused my already low confidence level to drop even more. In order to do something about these insecurities I decided to limit myself to eat only one dessert or sweet helping per day in hopes that eventually I could limit it to a smaller number per week. I also decided I would work out at least three times a week. This goal was to help my physical appearance but I also benefit mentally from a workout. Working out gives me time away from stressful situations I may be experiencing and time to just think. It is something that I have actually really missed in my life but feel like I do not have the time for anymore.
My reasoning for choosing the intellectual domain was because while I feel really prepared and involved in my classes and studies, my involvement and experiences in the outside world are lacking. I am never up to date on what is going on in the world or in the community around me. Whenever something major happens I always find out about it through word of mouth. Until this class this never seemed very important to me, I had the mentality that it had nothing to do with me. One of my goals was to be more informed on current issues. To measure this I decided that I would listen to or read two news stories per week throughout the semester. One thing I have always wanted to learn to do is dance. I took dance classes throughout high school and can pick things up relatively quickly, but I had never been taught how to dance with a partner, or ballroom dance. This is something that I think everyone should know how to do in some degree. I decided that for this semester I would learn how to swing dance.
I kept a journal for each goal, and recorded each week’s progress. In September I did not meet any of my goals for the entire month. I only met my goal of exercising three times a week twice out of the four weeks in September. I did not meet my one dessert per day goal for any of the weeks throughout September. It did not help that my birthday was this month and I...
