  1. Exercise
    1. Things I Do Well
      1. I walk home everyday, which takes about 40 mins, potentially enough exercise for the day.
        1. Walking, is exercise, although it is light it still improves health.
        2. I do a lot of co curricular sports for St Peters, one every term plus multiple club sports, leading to increased health all throughout the year.
          1. "Playing sports helps you stay in shape, teaches you how to organize your time, boosts friendships, and builds relationships with your peers and adults." Sport helps to improve your lifestyle overall.
        3. Things I Need To Work On
          1. My weekdays are very active and I do lots of sport and exercise, but my weekends are lazy and usually consist of homework and TV.
            1. My parents already convince me to play soccer on the weekends which counteracts the problem, but more exercise would help.
            2. I tend to take unnecessary risks when playing sports which leads to injuries which in turn leads to me not doing exercise for time.
              1. Being proactive and stretching before sport would decrease the likeliness of injuries. Not taking risks in sports that weren't competitive would be smart.
            3. Exercise is the physical tasks performed to burn fat and strengthen organs. Form's of exercise include walking, running and playing sports.
            4. Nutrition
              1. Things I Do Well
                1. I eat a large amount of fruit, more than four times a day, greatly improving my wellbeing
                  1. "Fruit and vegetables taste great and are jam-packed with vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre." (, 2015) Traits that are extremely important to one's health.
                  2. I consume an ideal amount of food everyday. The times I eat food is very structured.
                    1. Consuming to little or too much food leads to malnutrition or obesity. Malnutrition is when you don't eat enough food and start losing energy and activity. Obesity is an overdose on food which leads to bad health and a large amount of fat.
                      1. Society influences people into believing that you have to be very skinny and strictly diet. But it is unhealthy to eat less than recommended.
                  3. Things I Need To Work On
                    1. I eat a medium amount of unhealthy food such as chocolate milk and biscuits. Sugar and fat can lead to serious health problems in the future.
                      1. Being conscious of what is eaten is a key factor to a healthy diet. Thinking about what I should and shouldn't be eating and stopping myself is a solid solution.
                      2. There is very little variety in the foods that I consume. Our family infrequently try new foods and have been eating the same meals for years. This may worsen the variety of nutrients that I obtain from different foods.
                        1. Trying new foods and maybe different meals everyday would improve the range nutrients I am getting. Although it will be difficult to find a new food to eat every day, it will be beneficial.
                      3. Nutrition is the vital nourishments that living things consume and need to survive. They help our bodies fight germs, grow and produce energy.
                      4. Sleep
                        1. Things I Do Well
                          1. I am not distracted by social media or games and I stop without needing to be reminded. I do not have a phone and so don't use social media at night time.
                            1. Light from electronics wards sleepiness. The brain is active when using technology and this makes it difficult to rest the mind.
                            2. I do not eat sugary foods like lollies or soft drinks before bed which can be absorbed and turn to fat
                              1. Not eating sweet food before going to sleep improves your state of health. Healthy alternatives give you proper nutrition that is needed when sleeping.
                            3. Things I Need To Work On
                              1. My Current Sleep is irregular and doesn't have a particular structure but I usually go to bed early enough and I don't have trouble sleeping.
                                1. I could improve my sleep pattern by not doing homework on an electronic device just before I go to bed and doing something beneficial such as reading.
                                  1. Society influences people to believe that it is possible to get very little sleep but still be healthy, this is untrue.
                                2. Sleeping in on weekends is detrimental to my energy, it disrupts the pattern when I wake up and makes it harder for me to get out of bed early on school mornings. This pattern is demonsterated within the sleep diary task we were assigned
                                  1. Disrupting this habit only a few times is a solid solution and could potentially fix the problem
                                  2. I frequently do homework just before I go to bed. "Light [from computer screens] — particularly of the blue variety — can keep the pineal gland from releasing melatonin, thus warding off sleepiness. " (Kim, 2014)
                                    1. Remembering to go to sleep on time would improve the energy levels I have.
                                  3. Sleep is essential to people's lifestyles. It is a time that the body can repair and energy that has been lost throughout the day can be regained.

                                    1. Relaxation
                                      1. Things I Need To Work On
                                        1. I'm not good at prioritising tasks so that I can finish things and relax afterwards i.e. I am a procrastinator.
                                          1. I am not very organised with assignments, meaning that I become really stressed and don't have time to relax.
                                          2. Things I Do Well
                                            1. I enjoy spending time in nature, and live near a forest, which I go to and relax and connect with the roots that I am an animal.
                                              1. I can find interest and relaxation in little things, and don't get bored easily, I can calm myself and avoid stress by daydreaming.
                                              2. Relaxation is a process to calm yourself and relieve stress. Relaxation creates happiness and improves your lifestyle.
