Fitness- I know from experience that it is hard to find motivation to be active, and you often feel like it won’t make a difference. The solution to this is to workout with a friend, because you will most likely not cancel on them just because you “don’t feel like it” because you know they are depending on you. It also makes it more fun to be with your friends. I can promote healthy ways of living by inviting my friends to go on jogs or workout with me, so we get good exercise, and have fun at the same time.
Healthy sexuallity- In the future, I can carry methods of birth control like a condom with me, to prevent a situation where I didn’t have any protection and thought it was okay to not use it “just this time”. I could also carry it with me in case a friend needs it, because I wouldn’t want them to get pregnant or an STI either.
Substance Use and Abuse- Using my knowledge from this unit, I can help people who are less educated on the topic who think drugs are harmless just because “everyone does it”. I would want them to understand how much drugs can impact their life and that there are so many more ways to have fun with their friends.
