This paper provides a set of questions aimed at correlating one's physical health and wellness to their spiritual and psychological wellness. Each of the question explains the pertinence on the topic. You will also see one person's answers to the questions and how a plan would be developed based on their answers. This is a great exercise for anyone looking to discover and break down barriers to their wellness.
This project reviews the aspects of stress from the pervasive physiological and psychological effects to the myriad of ways to prevent long-term harm. Journaling was an important exercise as it encouraged introspection of this major issue. Listing one's stressors allows for the discovery of ways to prevent or mitigate the level of stress, such as better time management or understanding how one perceives difficult situations.
Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) can be a gift for many. In recent years people have sought out practices which better reflect an idea of doing less harm through more natural routes. This project provides information on the principles relating to Ayurveda, traditional Indian medicine. Since there is no licensing standards for Ayurveda, it is not regulated by any government body. In this case, it is imperative the individual performs some research to verify the practitioners qualifications for all CAM treatments. You will find the syllabus, lecture notes and handouts by clicking on the link below. Enjoy!
Check out this 20 minute presentation about supplement use in teen athletes. We all strive to be better at what we do. Teens are no different and the pressure can be even greater for them. Here we talk about the dangers and some healthy alternatives. This presentation can be provided to parents of children from all backgrounds. Even parents need to be reminded that all things require balance, patience and a little hard work to achieve your goals.
In this case study assignment, we learned how to tailor physical activities to the individual needs and current levels. Each person presented with a different goal, ability and resources. We learned to meet the person where they were and help them to progress to meet their goals. The principles used in this assignment were FITT (frequency, intensity, time and type) PROS (progress, regularity, overload, and specificity) to explain how the person would progress through the fitness program outlined. Each principle was attributed to the major fitness criteria as a whole: cardiovascular, flexibility, and strength. Addressing people as individuals and modifying the recommended activities will hopefully create a desire to continue with the program as it is seen as challenging but not overwhelming.
