Reflection Of My Eating Habits

First, I understand that my eating habits are not the best and I would love to change them. I do not eat according to the USDA food guide recommendations, because I never really paid attention to it and I am hardly every home so I always get food on the go, but I would like to start eating by it. Eating healthier is much better for you then always eating fast food and fried foods.

Second, to make my diet better I would drink and use more low fat milk. I would cut back on drinking caffeine, because drinking a lot of caffeine can cause blockages and it can even cause cavities. I would better fit my diet by eating more starchy vegetables like green peas or green lima beans and stop eating junk food. I would not eat junk food because it can make you obese. I would use less salt and add spices, herbs, garlic, vinegar, or lemon juice to season foods or use no salt seasoning mixes. I would also try black or red pepper.

Third, eating healthier is always better than eating unhealthy. Since I am not eating healthy and I love to eat fast food and fried foods like hamburgers. Fries, and fried chicken and fish, I would take steps to make my eating habits healthy. The steps I would take would eat more fruits. Maybe for lunch or for a snack I could eat a fruit salad. The next step I would approach is choosing meat like pork or chicken and eating them twice a week. I would eat more grains like wheat bread when I eat a sandwich. Calcium would be a must in my diet. I would not just drink milk when I eat cereal. I would try to drink it at least twice a day once in the morning and once at night. My next step would be to take my time and eat. I used to eat fast when I was at work, but now I would take my time and eat slower. Limiting myself to smaller portions or food is a…...

Reflection on My Personal Values

...As I considered my personal values and the values taken into consideration in the simulations, I concluded that my personal value system had not changed but had expanded. Before performing the simulations, my personal value system consisted of values such as integrity, respect, trust, loyalty, and quality relationships. The new values that I have added to my value system are time and confidentiality. In the following sections, I will discuss my values on time, confidentiality, and loyalty – an existing value. Valuing Time Time has become one of my values because everything that I do and every decision that I make depends upon how I allocate my time to perform and complete my tasks. I also consider time to be an important value because I must consider it when I create and plan schedules to show when project assignments are to be completed. And, time plays an important role on my job when I have to set up conference calls with out-of-state vendors or customers to finalize decisions and job assignments. Valuing Confidentiality Confidentiality has become one of my values because it is important for me to be aware of how I handle confidential information. Confidentiality is very important in my line of work because many of my job assignments involve classified information that is authorized for only certain individuals to handle. Confidentiality is also crucial because I must always be mindful of whom I discuss my job responsibilities with, conceal......

My Reflection

...My name is Tina and I am a senior, I just graduated last quarter. Today I’d like to share with you about the verse phillipians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God, and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”. There are so many key words in this verse, and today I want to share about “thanksgiving” and “the peace of God, which transcends all understanding”. Last quarter when I reviewed the survival kit with leann, it is very interesting to read what I wrote four years ago. There was a question asking “what is your biggest temptation?” and I was quite surprised that I had wrote: “comparing with other people”, because I almost forgot it was a huge struggle for me when I was a freshman. As you may know, Chinese people are really into competition. I remembered I used to compare myself with my roommate a lot. She is a "Christian” but she spent all her Fridays partying. But she is so pretty and popular. She had many more friends than me, she had better grades than me and she had many channel bags… And my biggest struggle is, why does she have everything I don’t have but yet she is not even praying to God or requesting anything! This struggle stayed with me through my freshman year because I realized that coming to bible study and worship God on Sundays cannot draw me closer to being “popular” and I was somehow......

My Reflection Paper

...Personal Reflection Paper The choices you make on a daily basis which could affect your way of living is critical thinking. When making a decision that could have a positive or negative affect on you is critical thinking. To me critical thinking is being used every day by us and may not even notice it or pay attention to it. When you at work that is probably where it is used most when you are dealing with different personalities and races so you have to think about how you act and talk. The three most significant things that I learned in this course is one how often we use critical thinking on a daily basis. The second thing this class taught me is the different stages of thinking which I figured out I was practicing thinker which I learned that was I went over the problems instead of jumping right into the problem. The final thing I learned was about fallacies which is something is not as it seems for example, if a commercial says they have tires for $40 and when you get there they say they are sold out already that is just a scheme to get you into the store. My critical thinking has changed tremendously since I have started this class. When I am work I am more conscience of my actions and words. This class also help me with raising my children by thinking before I react. Usually I just overreact before thinking about how my actions could have a negative affect on them. The reason I placed myself in the stage of practicing thinking was I want to be precise in......

My Literacy Background Reflection Paper

...Smith 1 Smith English 101 10 December 2008 My Literacy Background Reflection Paper When I think of revising a paper I usually think of making minor changes to grammar, spelling, and other more rudimentary changes. This time though I am challenged to not only make those type of familiar changes but now I need to make a more in depth analysis into the thesis and content, development, and expression of my literacy background paper. For me this is a real challenge because of my past struggles with literacy. For my literacy background paper the most important changes that needed to be made was to content and development. My instructor requested that I make some grammatical changes, shorten and summarize long quotes, and expand on main points and provide more examples. First, in reference to grammar and other rules of writing I did not make many errors. The first two pages were pretty clean. On page three I used the word “to” instead of “on”, as the instructor suggested, when referring to an effect on me from others. I find that I tend to make this mistake a lot. I need to focus more on areas I tend to need the most work on so I do not continue to make the same mistakes. If I don’t my readers will only continue to get the wrong message from my writing. Also, my usage of quoting words used in speech was left out. I should have correctly quoted the words Bruddah and brother, like “Bruddah” and “brother”. It is apparent that I need to work harder to make sure I......

This person can rely on a long-range of goals and plans to determine which aspects of a situation are important which can be ignored.’’(Berner & Berner, 1984)). My answers in the Self-Report scale from number 1,2,3,5,6, 7,14 and 15 reflects me as a competent nurse because I assist my patient first at all times, teach them about the management of their diseases and treatment , monitor frequently for safety since, identifying and managing of rapid changing situations, make right decisions about administering medication, giving therapeutic intervention at all times, monitoring and ensuring they have a quality health care services during their stay at the hospital by checking their vital signs and lab values for changes and use the information to make the best appropriate decision regarding their care.(Munjas,Barbara A, PhD., F.A.A.N., 1985).

A Reflection of My School Experiences

...A Reflection of My School Experiences Danielle June 19, 2014 EDUC- My immersion into the education field began around 1978. Every Saturday, I would help my mother load up her car with musical instruments of all sorts, and head on over to the Community Center in one of the toughest neighborhoods in Philadelphia. Despite the grime and crime ridden neighborhood that the Center was located, on the inside, one would never know of the issues that existed on the outside. There, I met my first group of children with disabilities, children with Down’s Syndrome. My mom came here every Saturday to teach these students who were from the local orphanage, music. My job was to pass out the instruments and help where needed. The funny thing about my experience when I look back is that I NEVER saw those kids as being “different” I mean I noticed that they had mongoloid features and stubby fingers but they laughed and acted as silly as I did. I didn’t know it then, but that is when I got the “teaching bug.” They say it takes a special person to teach special education, and that is very true. My first classroom experiences may have made the toughest teacher quit. I’ve been spat at, had feces thrown on me, food tossed at me just to mention a few, but none of those incidences broke my spirit because I believed that I could, along with the help of my paraprofessionals, turn these students around. No, it wasn’t easy and I went home many a night crying and calling my mom asking her how......

Reflection on My Role as Student Nurse and Future Healthcare Practitioner

...Reflection On My Role As Student And Future Healthcare Practitioner. The aim of this essay is to reflect on my role as a future health care practitioner and this I will be carrying out by using the Rolfe’s reflective MODEL. According to Wikipedia (Rolfe, 2001) stated that through the Rolfe reflective model, ‘’..a description of the situation is given which then leads into the scrutiny of the situation and the construction of knowledge that has been learnt through the experience.” As a future learning disability Nurse, I will be looking at the essential skills that are required for me to advance and pass my course as set out by the NMC (2007) Standard for Pre-Registration Nursing Education. These required essential skills have been identified as reading and research skills, numeracy skills (counting and calculations), writing, oral communication, working with others, critical and analytical thinking, document use, IT and digital technology.This skills I have found in my few months of study at the university to be of great challenge to most student of which I am no exemption. I also will be looking into the challenges faced during the studies and what the challenges are, the impact and the benefits of the skills gained during the studies will be used to evaluate where I am as a student and the areas of improvement will be noted especially in my first year of study. This essay will be concluded based on my progress so far and concentrating more on the areas needed......

...focuses on my experience of learning from reflection on giving intramuscular (IM) injections, using Gibbs's (1988) reflective model. I demonstrate how practice anxiety, as a student nurse, can be dealt with through effective mentoring. I chose the seminal theory of Gibbs reflection on practice, as it illustrates six significant stages; description, feelings, evaluation, analysis of the incident, conclusion and an action plan Ghaye and Lillyman (1997). Gibbs cycle is used throughout the process of reflecting on the incident to help me make sense of my practice and understand what l could do differently to enhance good practice. I use my experience from a placement simulation as I could not be on actual placement due to unforeseen circumstances. Reflection is a process through which healthcare practitioners and students can learn from experience and use the knowledge to inform and improve practice Schon, (1983). The ability to reflect on one's actions is particularly imperative in clinical practice and discourse. As Jarvis (1992) asserted, there is no consensus on the definition of reflection as it is a broad concept. Reid (1993, p305.) define reflection as; “a course of action reviewing an occurrence of practice to describe, analyse, evaluate and so inform learning about practice” Schon (1983) identified two types of reflection which are; reflection in action, which takes place during the event where the practitioner may not be aware that it is happening and reflection on......

My Reflection of Mission Command

...My Reflection of Mission Command Did you ever notice how in a staff meeting most Noncommissioned officers (NCO) do not strike up a conversation, but officers seem to have no problem speaking to each other? Waiting in the conference room, I sat back and observed how NCO and officers interacted, while waiting for a staff meeting to start. We, were all waiting on the commander to update us on the up coming deployment and what his commander’s intent would be. I am now assigned to a new unit and I am wondering how I will use knowledge and ideas of mission command.

Reflections About My Job

...that the skills I have are very important to my job and my coursework. There are so many different ways that I can present myself, especially in my job environment. Since I am trying to move up in my job, it really makes a difference how I present myself. It can also make a difference on how I can present to my classmates as well. I am always ready for a challenge, especially when it comes to my job. I knew from the start what I wanted to write my paper about. My job may not be interesting or sound fun to some people, but every day brings a new challenge. Some people may not be able to handle being on the phone 10 hours a day, but I really love it. The main goal of my paper was to make it easy to understand. I didn’t want the paper to be too long or too short. I knew I would have to keep the audience entertained , but I knew if it was too long they might get bored and if it was too short, I might not have had enough information for them to understand. I should always think about different ways to present myself, since I am getting ready to apply for a higher position at my current job. I am going for my interview in two weeks and have to explain why I am the person qualified for the job and why I want the job. PART B The three types of information I would put on a social media website to present myself in a professional manner would be: 1.) Experience: In this part, I would put some of my jobs I had in the past, and what my responsibilities were at those jobs. *......

My Reflection for Mother Teresa

... My Reflection for Mother Teresa Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love. The one quote that Mother Teresa has said impact me. For me, she is an unique individual with an exceptional love for mankind and the needy. She is simple and dedicated. She helped the poorest of the poor, the downtrodden and the rejected, gave them courage to live and the feeling of their worth. For me Mother Teresa is like Christ because she helped many people and gave them hope to them live their with simplicity. Mother Teresa’s life proved that the only real revolution in human affairs flows from service to others and self-sacrifice out of love for Jesus Christ. He life-long devotion to the poor, the sick and the disadvantaged was the highest examples of service to humanity. Many obstacles has passed through Mother Teresa but she overcome them. People criticize her but instead of making pay of what they did, Mother Teresa has clarified to them her work and also her responsibilities as a nun. Her life was one of the best examples of service to God. Many of us was touched by the mission of Mother Teresa. Throughout her life on earth, and now even more fully in the Kingdom, she stands as a beacon of light reflecting the heart of God to those who seek Him, who seek signs of His nearness and care in the darkness of human suffering and sin. For me she is “something beautiful that is made by God and for God”. By serving the poor through by “small......

... My Reflections on Counseling Counseling Reflection I have to say that before this experience, the longest counseling session I had with any client was only 10 minutes long, and even with that I would use the word success loosely . Therefore, after discovering that we would be having a 30 minute session with a new client, I became extremely anxious. A tornado of worries swept through my mind, “What if I say something wrong? What if the client says nothing? What if the strategy I go in with doesn’t work? And what can we talk about for 30 minutes?” But, as those worries sprang to life, I remembered some wise advice that helped alleviate my anxiety. Within the assigned readings for my psychology class, I have learned that in order to succeed you have to fail, and that I believe goes with everything in life. As blunt as that may sound, it is an accurate statement in regards to becoming a counselor. I will not instantly become a great counselor and I will inevitably fail and make many of mistakes during my training, but these mistakes will help pave my way towards becoming a successful counselor. Prior to beginning my 30 minute counseling session, I repeated this phrase over and over again while practicing some deep breathing to calm myself down. This mind set and relaxation process helped me appear calm and collected, even though on the inside I was a nervous mess. After a few moments of pulling myself together, I began the......

My Reflection on Business Ethics

...My Reflection on Business Ethics Introduction: For the purpose of this paper, I will briefly talk about my experience in class this semester as a business student. The university has started a new academic period to complete a course. It was rough at first but as time when by, things became quiet and I became more involve in class. I had a great experience with class members who were totally engaged in the class and we had a lot of stimulating conversations. While the pace was so fast, a little hard to keep up with the time, I tried my best to stay on track. It has been a great experience with the new eight weeks process. It astonishes me how business ethics is an important part of the business world as ethic play a significant role in our daily lives. We as individuals need to know how to behave as we move around the world. There are so many people from different cultural backgrounds; we also have the responsibilities to learn about different cultures as we move around. Business ethic has prepared me as an individual to know these things. We come from varieties of backgrounds; ethics are viewed at different prospect in various parts of the world. I had a great Professor who has mastered the subject matter to the fullest, he clearly explain the course as we moved on to the end of the semester. My professor understands that student sometimes go through rough times and he willingly understood their problems. The professor is always physically present, so if......

My Reflection on Learning Experience for the Last Eight Weeks Studies in Marketing.

...them. With this reflection, this paper outlines a brief overview of my observed marketing techniques of Coca Cola Company. It is worth noting that this paper is my personal reflection, and whatever I said has not been verified, hence, do not take it seriously. Marketing is everywhere. A shopkeeper display his goods in the shelves, in a way that will make anyone who walk in the shop buy something without giving it a thought. However, some companies have gone further in marketing their products to consumers. For example, Coca Cola markets itself in a way that makes consumers associate it with thirst and playing. Although many Australians watch AFL, my favourite sport is a game of soccer, which has made me like drinking Coca Cola. Every time I think of soccer, I think of Coca Cola. This marketing style is very important because it make consumers affection towards the brand a lasting relationship. However, it is an expensive strategy as it cost millions of dollars. This disadvantages many small or emerging companies because they cannot afford millions of dollars for marketing. In the tutorial class, my group members and I explored how Coca Cola has become so dominant in soft drink market. Tutorial (Week 2) In my group, our task was to find out what has made Coca Cola so successful since its inception in nineteenth century. We did not know where to start. As we struggled to begin, the tutor reminded us about time, which was sadly against us. For my input, I told my group that......
