Unformatted text preview: A.​ ​Take​ ​the​ ​Health​ ​Assessment​ ​survey​ ​posted​ ​on​ ​Canvas.​ ​Fill​ ​in​ ​your​ ​category​ ​scores​ ​in the​ ​table​ ​below. Categories​ ​of​ ​Wellness Physical​ ​Health Social​ ​Health Emotional​ ​Health Environmental​ ​Health Spiritual​ ​Health Intellectual​ ​Health Ideal​ ​Score 40 40 40 40 40 40 Your​ ​Score 30 31 34 22 27 32 B.​ ​Although​ ​the​ ​survey​ ​is​ ​not​ ​a​ ​scientific​ ​instrument,​ ​it​ ​does​ ​allow​ ​you​ ​to​ ​assess​ ​your own​ ​behaviors​ ​as​ ​they​ ​relate​ ​to​ ​general​ ​health​ ​and​ ​wellness.​ ​At​ ​the​ ​bottom​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Health Assessment​ ​survey,​ ​you​ ​will​ ​find​ ​an​ ​interpretation​ ​of​ ​what​ ​each​ ​of​ ​your​ ​category​ ​scores means.​ ​In​ ​your​ ​own​ ​words,​ ​describe​ ​how​ ​accurately​ ​you​ ​feel​ ​your​ ​category​ ​scores​ ​reflect your​ ​overall​ ​wellness​ ​status.​ ​(minimum​ ​of​ ​100​ ​words) I​ ​definitely​ ​agree​ ​with​ ​most​ ​of​ ​my​ ​scores​ ​because​ ​it​ ​shows​ ​that​ ​I​ ​need​ ​improvement​ ​in​ ​every category.​ ​I​ ​scored​ ​below​ ​thirty​ ​in​ ​two​ ​categories,​ ​environmental​ ​and​ ​spiritual​ ​which​ ​I​ ​feel​ ​is​ ​fairly accurate.​ ​I​ ​do​ ​need​ ​to​ ​work​ ​on​ ​my​ ​spiritual​ ​well​ ​being​ ​as​ ​I​ ​was​ ​not​ ​really​ ​raised​ ​to​ ​focus​ ​on spirituality.​ ​I​ ​also​ ​would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​show​ ​more​ ​respect​ ​for​ ​the​ ​environment.​ ​I​ ​do​ ​care​ ​about​ ​our planet,​ ​but​ ​I​ ​find​ ​it​ ​difficult​ ​to​ ​find​ ​the​ ​time​ ​to​ ​be​ ​conscientious​ ​of​ ​the​ ​environment.​ ​Also,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​hard to​ ​convince​ ​myself​ ​to​ ​purchase​ ​environmentally​ ​friendly​ ​products​ ​because​ ​they​ ​are​ ​more expensive​ ​and​ ​I​ ​live​ ​on​ ​a​ ​tight​ ​budget.​ ​I​ ​also​ ​find​ ​the​ ​other​ ​categories​ ​accurate. C.​ ​After​ ​reviewing​ ​all​ ​of​ ​your​ ​scores,​ ​identify​ ​and​ ​briefly​ ​discuss​ ​three​ ​categories​ ​of wellness​ ​that​ ​you​ ​might​ ​work​ ​toward​ ​improving​ ​throughout​ ​this​ ​semester.​ ​(minimum​ ​of 100​ ​words) My​ ​environmental​ ​health​ ​is​ ​the​ ​lowest​ ​and​ ​I​ ​think​ ​this​ ​is​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​easiest​ ​ones​ ​to​ ​raise because​ ​I​ ​can​ ​do​ ​so​ ​by​ ​switching​ ​to​ ​LED​ ​lightbulbs​ ​and​ ​recycling.​ ​It​ ​doesn’t​ ​take​ ​too​ ​much​ ​effort from​ ​me.​ ​My​ ​second​ ​lowest,​ ​spiritual,​ ​is​ ​sort​ ​of​ ​harder​ ​to​ ​raise​ ​depending​ ​on​ ​the​ ​person’s​ ​beliefs but​ ​I​ ​can​ ​easily​ ​raise​ ​it​ ​by​ ​appreciating​ ​life​ ​so​ ​much​ ​more!​ ​I​ ​have​ ​an​ ​okay​ ​score​ ​in​ ​physical health​ ​but​ ​I​ ​would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​raise​ ​it​ ​by​ ​living​ ​a​ ​healthier​ ​lifestyle​ ​like​ ​sleeping​ ​more​ ​and​ ​working​ ​out at​ ​least​ ​5​ ​days​ ​a​ ​week.​ ​A​ ​really​ ​small​ ​example​ ​to​ ​improve​ ​my​ ​health​ ​is​ ​when​ ​I​ ​absolutely​ ​HAVE to ​pull​ ​an​ ​all​ ​nighter,​ ​I​ ​would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​emphasize​ ​how​ ​much​ ​more​ ​important​ ​it​ ​is​ ​to​ ​eat​ ​well​ ​and work​ ​out​ ​so​ ​I​ ​do​ ​not​ ​get​ ​sick​ ​due​ ​to​ ​my​ ​weak​ ​immune​ ​system. D.​ ​Please​ ​type​ ​your​ ​answers​ ​to​ ​the​ ​following​ ​questions​ ​in​ ​the​ ​text​ ​box.​ ​After​ ​reviewing each​ ​of​ ​your​ ​category​ ​scores​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Health​ ​Assessment​ ​survey,​ ​choose​ ​a​ ​behavior​ ​from one​ ​of​ ​your​ ​lowest​ ​category​ ​scores​ ​that​ ​you​ ​would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​improve​ ​over​ ​the​ ​next​ ​several weeks​ ​of​ ​this​ ​semester.​ ​Next,​ ​answer​ ​all​ ​of​ ​the​ ​following​ ​questions.​ ​Do​ ​not​ ​leave​ ​any​ ​item blank.​ ​Also,​ ​do​ ​not​ ​type​ ​answers​ ​like​ ​"non-applicable,"​ ​"I​ ​don't​ ​know,"​ ​"I​ ​can't​ ​think​ ​of anything,"​ ​etc.​ ​or​ ​you​ ​will​ ​not​ ​receive​ ​credit.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
