Thought Paper 2

        On most days I am able to get enough sleep on average but occasionally I will either have trouble either falling asleep or allocating enough time out of my day to attend to my sleep schedule. Usually on days where I would not get enough sleep the night before I would go through my day somewhat sluggishly and disoriented. For the most part I am able to keep my sleep schedule in order by giving myself at least eight hours of sleep every night.

        Although I am not very athletic, my favorite physical activity to enjoy is tennis. Back in high school I made the tennis team twice before dropping out my Junior year due to focusing more on my grades and studying.

Whenever I am at the CI, my first instinct is to look for vegetables or salad, then I will look for carbs or protein.

However, if I had to define spirituality in a non-religious way, it would mean to understand one’s individuality and inner self. This means to discover your purpose, values, visions, dreams, goals, and beliefs as an individual. Obviously, these do not come to mind easily and requires at least a lifetime of discovering and a high sense of self-awareness to be able to understand.

        Usually, I believe that self-care and personal wellness should be kept separate from the welfare of others. However, if someone comes to me for help or for advice, I will most of the time value their personal wellness over mine.
