My Experience with Physical Activity
A Little Background
Physically Active? Me?
I grew up really enjoying being active. I was constantly participating in sports and helping my dad on his friends' farms and his archery range. Once I started getting busy with other things, my activity dropped. However, I have changed my habits slowly back over to being healthier and more active a couple years ago. I was given some hard news to handle, and decided to make a change to my lifestyle.
I am sure with no doubt that all of these: gender, ethnicity, SE, geographical area, etc., has played a role in how active/inactive I am. I believe a big role from geographical area was played though. I live far enough out of town and on a very busy high speed highway that is wa and still is unsafe to leave in or on anything other than a vehicle. So, instead of walking, I drove and once I got my license, a most people do, I drove everywhere. I could have gone to town and walked to my destinations but it was much easier and convenient in my mind to drive.
TIME TO MAKE A CHANGE!
I will be taking notes and making reflections on our daily energizers after participating to be able to use them in my classroom. I also believe that even if some things may make us feel silly as college students, we still have to buy in and do it full heartedly. If we don't, especially in front of our class, why would they choose to buy in. Besides, what's more fun than having fun with your class?!?
