The Personal Wellness, in my case, is indeed a strange subject. At the beginning, I saw the word "personal", I felt that this subject should be with another subject called "personal growth" almost, is about personal growth. And I still think this subject should be very boring, plus I think it is a waste of time on this subject, because only eight weeks of classroom, a full two had thousands of words of homework. Homework for me is not a big problem, but the most important reason is the day to hand in homework will be blocking my review of progress. Plus I have listened to some of the completion of this subject students said that this subject is a waste of time, which makes me more confuse for this subject. However, I found my misunderstanding on my mind for this subject, on the first day of class. This three-week class, I have learnt Occupational Wellness, Intellectual Wellness, these two issues so that I know better how to find my own goals and discover the how intellectual well of me.

On occupational wellness, I began to focus my future work direction. I should have my interests and dreams as to continue to make efforts to be able to become work? Or follow the social requirements, mediocre and vulgar to do a job? I believe that students almost my age are also facing this problem. I grew to love music, and I have been studying the guitar at secondary school. High school, I formed the band with friends around performance. In this period, my state of mind wants to be my future work as a music creation. On the way I won the high and low tide, but I did not give up. However, my academic results year after year poor, even to F.5, dropped out of school out to work. But then I found I was just the unexamined life and just even work to lose myself, only looking for fun everyday. Fortunately I could go back in a timely manner, return to the search for the ideal road to.…...

...Personal Wellness 6-6-13 Instructor: In summarizing what i've gleaned from this class, to me personal wellness is taking responsibility for you and your families health, by adopting healthy thoughts and behaviors through the seven dimensions of health: Emotional, Intellectual, Social, Spiritual, Physical, Occupational, and Environmental. Also the three types of prevention, primary, secondary, and tertiary are important for improving our life from disease and injury. Changing behaviors, setting goals to achieve and live a healthy lifestyle and keeping these dimensions in perspective takes constant effort. There has to be an inbetween in prevention where you can still enjoy a bacon cheeseburger and not feel regret about the fat content or the calories you just ate. Not only do we have to worry about the affects of the burger on our health but we have to worry about weather or not we can still fit into our namebrand jeans without having a muffintop. It's not only the social "guilt bludgening" we get every day but their is a factual personal guilt that we tend to pour onto ourselves thats probably from the media trained mind set we have come to know as the "normal". After looking at my life and at others around me I get the feeling that everyone sincerely whants to be happy but have been generaly "trained" to live in a constant state of confusion of how to be happy. We should look at what really makes ourselves and the people around us happy. there is a......

Most people in the United States have the access to fast food restaurants which people are doing more often instead of having a healthy home cooked meal. This often leads to a high caloric balance that is very unhealthy, which can lead to many other life threatening issues.

...Wellness is the integration of states of physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Wellness is composed of seven dimensions that include social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, vocational, intellectual and physical wellness. Each of these dimensions act and interact in a way that contributes to own quality of life.

After 90 days, applicants successful in quitting will be encouraged to reapply.” Existing personnel are not covered by this policy. The Clinic continues to offer existing personnel extensive support and guidance to quit using tobacco. Use of Tobacco by Employees One has to recognize that some people enjoy tobacco. Standing outside with a group of friends smoking during a break provides camaraderie. Pacing one’s actions throughout the day by indulging in a smoke break is pleasurable for many.

Origins of Wellness Wellness principles and practices are in no way a modern development. Wellness has a long, ancient tradition and body of knowledge behind it. Traditions relating to health, healing, and the concept of wellness can be traced back to a number of ancient civilizations across the globe. Some of these include: Greek and Roman bathing, the Arabian use of medicinal plants and minerals, traditional Chinese medicine (commonly referred to as “TCM”), and Indian Ayurvedic practices. Numerous societies and cultures have developed their own interpretations of medicine, massage, psychological well-being, and other approaches to healing over the years, several of which have played a role in informing our current understanding and practice of wellness (Zimmer, 2010). As a modern concept, wellness has gained currency since the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, through the writings and leadership of a number of thinkers and physicians mostly from the United States, who have largely shaped the way we conceptualize and talk about wellness today (SRI International, 2010).
