This is how people see us.  Wellness is important why?? 6 dimensions?? o Physical- everything that has to due with your body o ***Emotional/ Mental- if you are not stable you will not due any of the others to help yourself you will end up sabotaging yourself o Intellectual- using your resources and know what is going on in the world o Spiritual Wellness- believe in what you believe if that’s what you believe. Helps with the concept of death o Environmental Wellness- have to care about the world. If we destroy this planet we have nothing basically. Do benign things that can help the world. o Social Wellness/ Interpersonal Wellness- Learning what person you want to be, who you want to be with, who you want to hang around, as you grow older its going to change. August 29,2016 Process of Wellness- being able to change your behavior (Need to Utilize this in paper) Behavior Change Models- On the average it is 6 weeks to change behavior may be less with people with higher IQ Step 1: Pre Contemplation- Pre thinking its in your head. You know you need to fix it Step 2: Contemplation- you are thinking about it. Whatever problem you have something happens and makes you want to change it. “If I don’t fix this something bad will happen.” When that moment happens you start preparing to fix it. You’re thinking Step 3: Preparation- This is where you come up with you planning. Plan has to be specific cannot be vague. More vague you are the easier for you to quit. Be specific and have details with your goals. Make them realistic. Need variety and short term goals, DO NOT procrastinate. Step 4: Action- Where the change happens. If you have a problem and truly needs to change, this is where you actually change it. Has to get done in the time frame you set. Step 5: Maintenance- reach your goal but you still have thoughts about it. Step 6: Termination- You no longer have the urge. You are basically disciplined. Stress how do you respond when something threatens you. Your mind is going to change your body is going to change. Hans Selye- created something called the general adaptation syndrome  General because it doesn’t matter what kind of stress- good or bad  Adaptation because your body changes and adapts  Syndrome because its in parts Bad stress called distressed Good stress called eustress Your body goes through something called GAS- General Adaptation Syndrome  Alarm stage- adrenaline starts pumping along with cortisol. Blood in body moves to the major muscle groups. Blood leaves the stomach and the only thing left is acid  Resistance- Coping strategy (workout, sleep, something to make you forget) Need coping strategies that work. Background Stress- breaking a pencil didn’t affect others, irritating people Stress is manageable but it cannot be eliminated. If you can bounce back in a positive way you are mentally healthy person. Relationships- good relationships being able to workout problems together. If you can’t work it out, then that is the fundamental problem. Fundamental quality. Relationships are not absolute they are great to begin with but as they progress they can become hollow, that’s when conflict comes. There is a tolerance line, feelings change, married for the wrong reasons. Know the person at least them for a calendar year. Know the person you’re dating. Nobody is as they appear you are going to put your best foot down. Don’t need somebody you have to want them. Be the best version of yourself before you seek someone! Don’t make someone change or mold them into someone. August 31 Caroline Hacks- writes for Baton Rouge paper one as known as one of the best relationship experts in the business. By the time you’re 30 majorities have been through 3 breakups. Takes men a longer time to get over breakups. Breakups hurt woman in the beginning most. As time passes in a breakup it gets easier unless the couple continues to interact it takes longer. If you think you deserve to be hit or abused, then that’s what you seek in a relationship. Breakups occur when something bad happens. Time to take a period of self analysis. There are no absolutes, both men and women have problems sleeping and eating. This is normal as long as it doesn’t linger. Woman initiate breakups more. 46% of the time woman initiate. Lack of communication is the number one reason for the breakups. DANGERS OF A BREAKUP:  Losing jobs  Not going to school  Self-destructive This is called post relationship brief- this can be healthy as long as you use them carefully. 40% of people who live together do not get married and if they do 40% get divorced. People are careful with their heart because they don’t want their heart broke. You don’t complete another person. 6.8% –women 6.5%-men on terms being hurt. Cant read peoples minds no matter how close you are. What you went thru in your past can hinder current relationships. You will not love completely if both are not vulnerable. The more you get to liking someone the more attractive a person can get and vise versa. September 2, 2016 Trust – don’t use trust as a crutch You have to know about somebody’s past so you don’t unintentionally upset them Unconditional love Forgiveness Cheating When do you end relationships – when you become exhausted Having same values Everybody knows a person in their life who is a pain 13 categories of difficult people 1. Gloom and doom – their goal is to spread fear and depression, make sure you don’t have a good day, carry your ass (CYA), don’t see the world as different, they see the world the way they are, just get away from them to protect yourself 2. Bully – change your reaction so they don’t know what to expect 3. Energy thief – you’re tired when you finish interacting with these people, just say “I understand” and they leave you alone after a few times 4. Mr or ms obnoxious – want to be center of attention and do it by being very rude, just start leaving and they will ask you why but you just keep leaving 5. Criticizer – very criticial of them or yourself, just let them talk and ask if theyre done, say “let me think about this and I will work it out” 6. Judge – the person who always judges people, stop and consider before we speak. In terms of what you are about to say is it 1. true 2. Kind 3. Necessary, a lot of times its not necessary, don’t speak unless all 3 of those things are true, cant judge someone until you walk a mile in their shoes 7. Trash person – con you. Come to you with all your problems and dump them on you, start with you are the only person who will understand this, you are the smartest person I know and the only person I can go to and tell this to. Never give advice, lead them to their own solution. Ask them guiding questions. 8. Persisted – keeps at it, person that calls you on the phone and wants to sell you something, first will ask you about the weather then sell you something. Deal with them by hanging up in real life don’t do anything get a different friend 9. Moan and groan – dramatic, come in after work and you will think by looking at them they have a fridge on their back to demonstrate that no other person on the planet has no other job as important as them. Then you say “whats wrong?” and you don’t want to do that cause then they go on. Energy thief. 10. Moocher – Want free. Always want something from someone else. If people are eating they don’t buy anything but when there is food left over they ask are you going to eat that. Everybody mooches sometimes. Have to let them go and get rid of them. 11.The Demander (Score Keeper)- They keep score of what everyone has done for each other 12.Mr/Mrs. Sensitive- The person you have to watch what you say around. Cant do anything around the, 13.Never Wrong (most difficult person)- they think they are always right ***exercise responsibility Mental Health- is resilience, the ability to bounce back. Something bad happens can you bounce back from it Mental health does not equal happy. You don’t have to be happy to be healthy you need to be stable. Being stable is recognizing your problems and dealing with them. You don’t let them screw with other people.

Sense of connection: how you are in groups. Do you get along, dominate, everyone gives work to, do you ever say you cant do it 2. Sense of uniqueness: everyone believes they have something that sets them apart from everyone on the planet. Be able to identify that and be proud of it. 3. Sense of power: peer pressure, do you give in when you don’t want to do something but youre afraid. That’s being other directed when others direct you. Do you control your actions? 4. Sense of models: who is your model you live by. How did your parents raise you? How do you react? Some people know right from wrong and react correctly. Need to have good models to have good self esteem Sense of Model- everyone was raised a certain way, different experiences what this does is teach you right from wrong. Emotional needs: 1.
