Paper: The Different Ways to Improve My Personal Well-Being in College

Now that I’ve gotten over the first week jitters of being a college freshman I couldn’t be more excited for this year at college. I do believe that I can accomplish many things and I look forward to bettering myself, both physically and mentally. I plan to do this through hard work and dedication both in and out of the classroom. The first way I want to improve my personal well-being is through my studies in the classroom. I am striving to maintain a very high grade point average partly because it is a requirement to stay in the Honors College and also my personal pride with academics. I plan to achieve this through keeping up with my studies every night and not procrastinating like I did for a major portion of high school. I believe that I can handle the rigors of college and as long as I do this I should be very successful this year. I plan to deal with the large load of homework and other activities by making use of my planner and also writing in any appointments in my phone so that I will not forget them. The other way that I plan on improving my wellness is through my physical self. I was very active throughout my high school career in a vast amount of different sports teams. Now that I am no longer part of one, I believe that it is important to keep in shape and possible improve my body. I want to accomplish this through creating a workout plan and also running almost every day. Along with this I would like to incorporate fruits and vegetables into my daily diet for at least one meal along with drinking milk instead of soda to allow for better nutrition. I believe that if I establish a good routine I could lose quite a bit of weight and have a much more productive year physically. On top of those goals, I have already achieved 2 goals that I had set for myself at the beginning of the year but I now have an incentive to go further with them. I have gotten involved with hall government, at which I am a hall representative. Additionally I am currently employed as a desk assistant as well as a member of EMS. My goals with extracurricular activities is to finish out my classes that will allow me to be a certified member of the EMS squad and I believe that I can do so through studying when I can and also treating it as an actual class that I need for school. Overall I am very excited to take part in many different aspects of college and I believe that if I set my mind to it, I can have some of the best years of my life here. I really hope that I can hold myself accountable and if I do I believe that I will be better off than ever before. All that is left is for me is to figure out a plan of attack and execute it. I am looking forward to what’s in store for me and I can’t wait to see how it pans out. ...
