Like in the consumption of vegetables where my wellness plan states that often I should be consuming vegetables and wholesome foods. Besides, I also have got an inconsistency in consuming table salt whereas my wellness inventory says that I should not adding salt to my diet on the table.

Waist circumference= 28

WHR = 0.737

The waist-to-hip ratio is an indication of fertility. A healthy waist to hip ratio woman should be below 0.8 and a healthy waist to hip ratio for a male should be 0.9 and below. Waist-to-hip ratio may be used to determine how certain is one likely to develop health complications. It may also signify signs of obesity if the ratio is higher than normal.

My weakly work out is slightly not in line with the Canadian guide, since in the guide, both types of exercise, moderate, vigorous and aerobic are supposed to be done. My work out time is quite higher than the advocated period in the guide. The Canadian guide for physical activities recommends the adults of aged 18-64 years to set aside at least 150 minutes to exercise; and this can range from moderate, vigorous to intensive aerobic activities in each week. The muscle and bone strengthening is also advocated to be taken at least twice a week. The exercise is said to prevent diseases such as heart diseases, osteoporosis, and others, Roberson, Lara, et al. (2014).

My total score from the wellness chart is 26, in which a room for improvement is required. The weight lifts are supposed to be included in the exercise; however, it’s missing in my weakly training. The wellness chart and the Canada guide contains similar information on workouts. I always spent quite a good time watching television and movies. In a week it can be approximated to 14 hours, and 8 hours in surfing on social media. In most cases, social media usually take much time of people more than other activities, as stated, Hsu, Williams, et al. 2015. My screen time does not interfere with my exercise schedule due to the commitment I have.

I have got a good state of health summing a total of 387 of the ranges. I am excellent in environmental awareness and emotional awareness and sexuality and self-care and safety, am good at mental wellness and have got a vast room of improvement running from the physical activity, nutrition, social awareness, occupational wellness, spirituality and values, and emotional management. I need to improve on the physical activity to boost my skeleton-muscle and make my body stronger for the routine duty. I also need to manage my emotion so well because it is the mind that guides the spectrum of your day; this will enable me to make it more proper for good health. My nutrition levels also need to be more established without compromises; I should follow the wellness inventory plan.
