This assignment came at the end of the semester where I still found myself being challenged with new concepts.

In this reflective essay I will discuss and reflect on this journey. This reflection will include why I decided to focus on this specific SMART goal aswell as how I found the SMART goal journey.
There must be balance, to achieve optimum wellness. Making sure I have enough sleep, incorporating meditation to my life, and staying healthy, by eating right and exercising can give me a well lifestyle. Every life matters, so we must make it matter by making changes to our lives. Mindfulness has a lot to do with balancing out our lives. Mindfulness means that we must take time out of our day to “sit, stand, or lie down and focus on the breath, bodily sensations, sounds, other senses, or thoughts and emotions” (Stahl & Goldstein, 2010).

It is not a new concept and there have been tools and interventions developed to promote its importance. Sweeney and Witmer created the Wheel of Wellness which was the first model based on wellness in counseling. Myers and Sweeney continued to make modifications to the wheel and created other models such as the Indivisible Self (IS-Wel). Studies have shown these models and interventions to be successful even with diverse cultures. “Wellness counseling emphasizes strengths as well as personal choices,[sic] and underscores the importance of daily decision making to achieve the goal of an increasingly healthy lifestyle” ( Myers & Sweeney, 2007, p.2).

Wellness and Prevention Following the Adlerian view, I will discuss how people will maintain wellness by including the core construct. Wellness is how a person takes care of himself or herself mentally, physically, and holistically. We should look at each other from a holistic perspective.

After a month, I was looking for a way out, I bit off more than I was able to chew. But in my case, it was too late. At that point I had been in the class too long to switch, so I had no choice but to stick it out. I felt like a prisoner; all of my potential and nothing to show for it. I needed an outlet from the pointless assignments which inevitably turned into me writing my own short stories and blogs.
What is wellness? “Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy life. Wellness is also a process for change and growth” (Health Topic – What is wellness?).
