I just finished up my homework assignments for this week in my online Human Relations class. This class is pretty basic...some of the info I groan and skim through like, "Be positive at work and it will get you far!" Really? Nice reminder, but give me something I don't know!!
I was taking an assessment (we have many of these in this class) entitled:
Attitudes Necessary for Getting and Keeping a Job
We had to rate each of the 18 questions on a scale of 1 to 10 if we had these necessary qualities or not. I was intrigued to find out that THREE of the questions were health-related!! Here they are...where do you rate?
1. I am concerned about my health and eat only healthful foods.
2. I enjoy exercise. (Should have also said "I do exercise"...we can all "enjoy" exercise..)
3. I carefully monitor my weight, muscle tone, and cholesterol level.
I will be honest, I put 10's for all of them...but trying to be truthful with myself now...I may only be at 7's for all of them. I'm not perfect!! Semi-Health Nut remember??
|Just guess the amount of empty calories in this bag...|
I only ate half of them when I turned the bag around...
It was so interesting to me that these questions be put into a questionnaire about attitudes necessary for a job! I loved seeing them because it is so true! When we value ourselves, it translates into all parts of our lives..including our jobs.
At the end of the assessment the part regarding the health questions says,
"This score reflects your attitudes toward your health and wellness. If your score is low, are you willing to pay additional premiums not covered by your employer?"
Yikes! Reality check! If we don't monitor our health...we could pay for it later!
Well, hope this motivated you like it motivated me! Now we should all go work out, eat a healthy meal and smile and say positive things at work. :-) Let's start with a delicious salad. And make sure it's filling in a healthy way with lean turkey and cottage cheese. Mmmmmm...

Tip: Dip the fork in the dressing instead of dumping it on the salad. :-)
I cannot figure out how to add an attachment on this blog...so if someone wants that assessment, I can e-mail it!
|380 for the whole bag thank you. A whole meal's worth!|
Have a great night! And thanks for stopping by!!
