3. Identify a personal goal as part of your physical activity plan using the goal- setting steps. ________________________________________________________________________________ Background Information Getting Beyond Just Getting Started This course, and the physical activity practicum (see Module A) in particular, is intended to help students take greater ownership of their own physical fitness promote the discovery of physical activities suited to students’ own interests encourage students to engage in active lifestyles that persist into their futures To realize these goals, students need to form good habits so that they can adhere to their physical activity plan, meet the requirements for this course, and be active and healthy beyond graduation for a lifetime. Forming a Habit The formation of a habit (good or bad) typically depends on two things, time and repetition. We all tend to have some habits that we are not particularly fond of or perhaps not even aware of. Some of these habits may not be overt or may not have a major impact on our day-to-day living; however, the lack of “healthy” habits can and will have long-term effects. The good news is that while taking the first step to forming a new habit may be difficult, subsequent steps can be relatively easy.

    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.
