When observing my goals I noticed how two out of the six dimensions of health where incorporated in both goals. Each goal had one dimension, Psychological and Physical, without out even deliberating about it. My goal one was time manage/stress, which was a Psychological health dimension, and goal two sleeping more hours which was Physical.
Emotional wellness another word for Psychological wellness, implies to the ability to be aware of and accept our feelings, coping with stress in a healthy way, and enjoy life despite its occasional disappointments and frustrations. My path to emotion wellness involved learning to be more aware of my thoughts and feelings. Understanding my body along with my mind when I was over worked and also over stressed, learning time management skills, and maintaining a life balance of both my academics and my social life.
Physical wellness doesn’t only involve aspects of life that are necessary to keep yourself in top condition, but it is also concerned with developing personal responsibility for your own health care. Working out, together with eating well isn’t all you need to do to achieve physical wellness. You must also sleep the recommend hours of sleep and receive regular check ups for you Physician. The physical benefits of looking good and feeling great often lead to psychological benefits of enhanced self-esteem, self-control, determination, and sense of direction.

Sleeping the number of hours recommend has made such a physical impact making me not only feel better about myself physical self but also mentally to.

By the end of the semester I should have been able to create a proper daily and weekly schedule that not only involve my academics, but as well as my personal life.

It's just all about taking one step at a time.
