In unit 3, on a scale of 1 to 10 (ten being optimal well-being), I rated my physical well-being at an 8, my spiritual well-being at a 6, and my psychological well-being at a 7. I would probably keep the same ratings now. I think I have made some progress in certain ares but not others, so I wouldn't change my scores. The goals I made back in unit 3 were, physical health: improve my posture to help ease my back pain and to ice regularly. Spiritual well-being: take 15 minutes each day and just sit quietly with my thoughts. Psychological health: continue my deep breathing to control my anxiety.
I have definitely kept up with the physical goal. I've been icing my back and also taking epsom salt baths for aches and pains. I have not completed the spiritual goal, not even close, although sometimes I sit with my thoughts without realizing I am. And I have continued to use breathing to help my anxiety.
I really enjoyed this course a lot. I loved how 'holistic' it was and I believe that is what will help me the most going into
my future career, whatever it ends up being! I think any sort of job where you are working to help clients become a better
person via physical, emotional, or spiritual means, being able to have a background in a more holistic, integral approach
is very beneficial. My interest is in personal training and diet, but I want to be able to give my clients a more
'whole-rounded' approach because health in general is not one-size-fits-all. People are so different from the way they
need to eat to the way they pray to what exercises they need in the gym. I think that is where this class will benefit me
in the long run, just being able to recognize that there are other approaches out there for people to try and that the health
field is actually very diverse.
