What is wellness? “Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy life. Wellness is also a process for change and growth” (Health Topic – What is wellness?). To have acceptable wellness you should have an equal amount of social, emotional/mental, and physical health. I, myself, believe that I have an okay wellness, I mean not like full wellness but just enough to pass I'll say. But how am I living in wellness?
There are different ways of living with wellness. My social health is getting better. I'm doing my best to be social with people. I occasionally like talking to people, but it's better than not talking at all. My mental/emotional health I would say is good. Consistently I have doubts about how I feel about myself. I assume everyone has those days when they don't feel acceptable, but at the end of the day you are at what you are. How am I not living well?
I have lots of problems in my life, but being well is probably one of them. My social health was bad but after meeting everyone, I actually like talking to people. As a freshman in high school you can understand the struggle to fit in, especially with the older kids. The older kids always like to put the little ones, but that's what they don't there is nothing you can do about it. I'm not saying I'm having problems with them considering those aren't the people I want to hang out with, it's just many people in the 9th grade can be so rude to each other. Everyday you notice, but mostly hear, people talking about their so called “friends”. I'm going to be honest, that is one of the reasons why I'm not friends with everyone. To me being friends with everyone, that is more people talking about you. I'm told that I'm too shy, I'm not shy I just don't want to trust everyone. All my friends are people who I can trust if I told them something. I mostly have acquaintances, people who I would talk to but won't tell them personal stuff. Anyways my physical health isn't the best. I keep having of back pains, and sometimes chest pains that hurt like crazy. That is why my resolution is to exercise. I'm starting in Spring where I can do much more stuff like play sports and go walking. It's also a great thing that I'm in gym, if I wasn't I wouldn't know about all the problems that could happen to me if I kept being lazy. I judge my behaviors have something to do with my problems.
It is important to think about your behaviors because you need think about how it will affect you and the other person. If you call someone ugly and say just kidding you don't know how that person will feel about you saying that. The person might be laughing now, but later they will look back at that comment and start thinking about if they are ugly or not. There are people who can take jokes, there are people who can't. Just put together who is and isn't. There are times in class when you are learning something, and there is that one person who wants to talk...
