Health Assignment (Part B) According to Eric Garner, the SMART goals are ‘managerial goals’ (2012). They are ‘the application of a step-by-step thought-and-action process’ (Garner, 2012). At the beginning of this semester, I set SMART goals for each of five dimensions of health. In the following paragraphs, I will review my SMART goals, briefly explain my progress toward those goals, and introduce my new goals. Make vegetable sandwiches for lunch every day was my SMART goal for improving my physical health. I was unable to reach this goal as I planned. After the strike, I got more school work than I thought. This SMART goal soon became unrealistic: I didn’t go shop on time, I avoided to spend a lot time to shop, I had no time to make sandwiches, or I just felt too tired after my day ended. I changed this goal to a new SMART goal: make vegetable sandwiches for dinner on weekends. Usually I have more time on weekends, and I go shopping on weekends. ‘I need vegetable tonight’ keep reminding me to get what I need. I planned to improve my emotional health by going sleep at least half hour earlier every night. It was attainable and realistic, but I was unable to reach this goal. It was the …show more content…
As mentioned earlier, I got more school work after the strike. I found out I need at least two days to finish reading or review one chapter course materials. I also need time to complete my assignments. Unsurprisingly, this goal became unattainable and unrealistic. I set a new SMART goal for my cognitive dimension of health: finish reading one chapter course materials on weekends, and finish the review on following weekdays. I will try to finish my assignments ahead, so I will have more time for reading or reviewing. Also, I will review with my study group members, which will save me time to search for correct

    Finally, I will need to learn what study habits work for me. Whenever I study for an exam, I earn a much better grade. At the beginning of the semester, we learned about our own personal learning styles and the best ways to meet our own individual learning needs. I am a kinesthetic learner so it helps if I can move around while I am studying or reading for my classes. I might have to go for a walk or take frequent breaks, or hold something in my hand to play with while I am reading so that I can remember.…

    For me, I literally did this once or twice a day since that would be my only meal. This habit was never intentional, I just had a busy schedule and could never find time to eat. However, I want to stop this habit because I know there will be serious health consequences for me in the future such as type II diabetes. In order to stop my habit of binge eating, I decided to start meal prepping throughout the week so I could eat 4-5 meals a day. I believe that by dividing up my meals into smaller portions I wouldn’t feel so hungry.…

    But enough was enough, I need to start packing a lunch. I don’t enjoy boring lunches, but I also hate cooking for myself, so the best solution was to begin meal prepping.

    Now for dinner I decided that I will start implementing more crock pot meals, so that while I am at school, my dinner is cooking. This also opens up time when I get home from school, I am able to immediately review my note from class and have some study time, before my kids come home from school. I normally used this time to figure out what we are eating, then defrost the food, and most of the time run to the store to get last minute ingredients. These few but very big changes, made such a big difference in my day to day life. My children were much happier in the mornings, besides not being rushed in the mornings now, they were also able to go to bed at an earlier…

    You really have to want to eat and be healthy it’s really all boiled down to a want from yourself to do it. For starters you need to set out a meal plan to get started and if it was up to me I would start on the first day of the month it’s easier to keep track of it.

    Hunger in America is a bigger issue than most Americans like to believe, as Americans we like to think that hunger only exists in other countries. This week I got a better picture of how hunger affects people. Although I did not fully comply with the food stamp challenge, I found out quickly that if I were to be on food stamps my life would challenge drastically. I was lucky enough to have food bank experiences, I went home Sunday and my mother cooked so I had leftovers form that and I can go to the sorority house to eat 3 meals a day during the week. On Tuesday I went to the grocery store to buy a few things I needed for the week; cereal, milk, two pre made salads, and a box of Luna bars.…

    As a result, I arrived to work only 1 minute in advance which caused my manager to be displeased. After work, I had a little time to complete upcoming assignments and tasks, but once again, I failed to practice the trait of order and use that time wisely. I could have used the time to study and look over my notes and finish word problems, but instead, I decided to check my phone and eat snacks until I went to…

    Food: The Least Important Part of Dinner A lot of American families are either eating out or coking ready-made food instead of preparing a meal at home due to their busy schedules. In an article titled Takeout NATIONS, Adler describes how families are making the time to eat together but they are just stopping on the way home and picking up food that is already prepared for them (52-54). Although it is positive that Americans are trying to eat as a family, there is a lot of quality time and life lessons that could be getting lost. Taking the time to plan, shop, and prepare home cooked meals should be a higher priority in American households. Getting children involved early during the meal planning process can have a lot of benefits.…
