Physical Activity; Nutrition or Stress Management/sleep as explained and reported in Discussion

If you want to build a ship, don’t herd people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work but rather, teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea. 

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry


Definition of Wellness: Wellness is defined by the National Wellness Institute as an active process through which people become aware of, and make choices toward, a more successful existence. Wellness is an optimal soundness of body and mind.



  • TOPIC  Select from:  Physical Activity; Nutrition or Stress Management/sleep as explained and reported in Discussion #2. (completed July 11)
    • This part of the project is to encourage students to reach a total of 10,000 steps a day. You may use a phone app or other device that measures steps and movement like a fitbit, etc. Research reveals that with daily activity of 10,000 steps a day, participants receive health benefits that would place them in a moderately active range. Track your activity all day for all 4 weeks of this project. Each day, at the end of the day, record your step total on the log sheet that will be provided to you on canvas, or use your own tracking sheet.  Reset your pedometer/tracker for the next day.
      • Turn in the log as part of your final personal wellness project report. Pedometer Log.pdf
      • EVERYONE MUST COMPLETE THIS PART OF THE PROJECT even if your focus is nutrition or sleep habits


    • Record and track your behavior change process for 4 weeks. Turn in any additional log or tracking sheets that you used and pedometer/activity tracking log.
    • Retake the “How Well are You?” lab and report your new scores with a comparison to your original scores from assignment #1 which was submitted on July 11. You do not need to turn in the assessment just the lab scores with a comparison to your first set of scores for each of the six dimensions of wellness. LAB 1.1 How Well Are You.pdf
    • Prepare a typed one page (about 400 words) summary of this experience and your plan for continuing your new behavior.


Ideas and sources to get you started—

As soon as you have selected your area(s), investigate the appropriate chapter(s) in the text. Look at the resources at the end of the chapters to help you with your behavior change.



We all have areas of our lives that could use some work. It is healthy to identify gaps in our personal wellness and find ways to address the issues. Use the information from your Lifestyle Assessment Inventory to identify your area for improvement in your personal health.



Develop better sleep habits, exercise more frequently, learn about financial management,  eat more veggies, learn about recycling and other environmental health issues and make improvements, stop procrastinating,  increase overall activity, laugh a lot, volunteer somewhere (regularly), buy lunch for a friend (pay it forward), donate blood, play on the playground, write letters to friend/relative, quit smoking, practice stress reduction, read a novel, write a novel, wear sunscreen, throw the TV out the window, learn to cook, take a yoga class—all of these ideas can be PART of your journey to better health.
