Where am I located within my "country" of awareness--regarding the "states" of physically, psychologically, & spiritually.......................???
1. If I were to rate myself on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being optimal wellness on my various well beings, where do I stand?
a. Physical Well-Being: 8
WHY? At this point in my life, I do not have and have not had any life-threatening diseases or illnesses. I am physically active, and have been my whole life! In addition, I rank my physical well-being as an 8 because I have always maintained a "normal" weight according to the BMI calculations.
b. Psychological Well-Being: 7
WHY? At this point in my life, I believe that my psychological well-being is a 7 because I have never had an major mental problems. I have been blessed with a healthy body and brain, and have always been able to achieve really high grades and make Dean's List. The reason why I don't give myself a 10 is because I have had times lately when I feel kind of depressed. My boyfriend works in the music industry so he is constantly gone, and I don't get to see him that much. Therefore, when I am home alone and missing him, and I tend to feel a little weak mentally. However, I am working my hardest at becoming a stronger person mentally.
c. Spiritual Well-Being: 7
WHY? I chose the number seven also for my spiritual well-being because I am Roman Catholic, and have always felt like I have a strong connection with god. However, since I was younger I have began to slack with attending church like I used to every single Sunday faithfully. Since I live in a new city, and didn't have anyone to go with I lost the importance. YETTTT...today I went back for the first time in a looooong time because I found a friend to go with!!! It felt so good to be back. Throughout the time that I did not attend mass, I did keep a strong relationship with my faith and spiritual side of well-being through prayer and worship.
2. My goals--->
a. Physical goal: I will keep my weight where it is now, and never allow myself to weigh more than 120lbs since I am only 5'2''. As well, I will keep up my high level of physical activity going in order to maintain my current weight.
b. Psychological goal: In order to keep myself sane, I will learn to deal with the fact that I can't see my boyfriend everyday.
c. Spiritual goal: I will continue to go to church every Sunday, even if I have to go by myself.
***For my physical goal, I will take part in yoga more often, and work on my cardiovascular fitness at least 3 times a week.
***For my psychological goal, I will make certain to keep stress management tools close to me so that I can effectively deal with stress and life obstacles through learning to look at things differently with a positive interpretation.
***For my spiritual goal, I will continue with prayer, and force myself to go to church even if I cannot find one of my friends to come with me.
4. After I completed the listening exercise "The Crime of the Century", I felt both inspired and fustrated at different times. I felt ispired and relaxed during the beginning when the music was smooth and the breathing exercise was uplifting. I began to get fustrated a little bit when the author told me to think about various colors. Specifically I thought of blood when he told me to think of something's red, which gave me an off feeling.
