I scored myself a (10) on all 3 areas: physical, spiritual, and psychological well-being; earlier in the semester and I still feel the exact same way at the very end of the course if not higher. The scores haven't changed because I haven't had any dramatic changes in my life in the last couple of weeks and I am totally happy with my life and who I am. I have made progress toward my goals of exercise, meditation, and reading my bible more. Now that this semester is over that gives me a little more time to squeeze in and work on some of these personal activities that I so desire. I have implemented the activities in all 3 areas because I am the type of person that does not like to put things off until the last minute because that only causes me more harm than good by increasing my stress level. Once I decided to improve myself physically, spiritually, and psychologically, I feel refreshed and have an even more greater outlook on life now. I have lost a couple of more pounds, gainned more spiritual knowledge, and have increased my ability to deal with ongoing stressors. My personal experience throughout this course has been truly amazing, fun, and rewarding all at the same time. The blog assignments were fun and gave me a chance to connect with my classmates on a more personal level. Nothing has been difficult except for the "subltle mind exercises" in the textbook. This will improve my ability to assist others by inspiring them to push forward in life no matter how difficult their situations may seem right now; it's never to late to take a stand.
