Stages of Change-Physical Activity- Michelle Howard 1. For how long have you maintained your daily (or near daily) 30 minutes (or more) of physical activity?
I have always been physically active, I have never been one to sit around and watch television or play on the computer. I have to be up doing something, whether it is cleaning or outside working in the yard or with the horses. So I have been this way basically since I could walk and I’m 42 years old. 2. What are the top two reasons that make you want to continue?
I have children and I have never wanted them to see their mother not be able to participate in their life. I also use the health conditions that plague my father’s side of the family; I see how they struggle with their weight and diabetes that I do not want to be a part of that. 3. Have you been tempted to stop? If so, what tempted you?
I don’t think I have ever been tempted not to be active. 4. How confident are you that you can resist temptation to stop being physically active?
I am pretty adamant about staying healthy, I have worked for many doctors and I have seen firsthand the causes and outcomes of one being lazy and unproductive in trying to take an active stand on being healthy. And I have also lost loved ones to health diseases because they chose not to try and live healthy, I don’t want my children to lose their mother before her time. 5. How do you convince yourself to continue when you are tempted to stop or skip a day? (What strategies do you use?)
I look at my daughter and remind myself that I get up for her every day and if I’m not around or sick and unable to care for her then who does she have to take care of her. My strategy is basically self-guilt, it really works great. 6. Can you prevent temptations from occurring? If so, how?
No one can prevent temptations from occurring that is life, so I just try and…...

Stages of Change

...Of what benefit does the Stages of Change model offer to the health care manager who wants to encourage efficiency and the highest standards of service? A stage of Change Model as proposed by Prochaska and Colleagues for addictive behaviors consists of six dynamic stages. The six stages are: Precontemplation, Contemplation, preparation, action maintenance, and termination. Precontemplation is when an individual is not considering making any changes. Contemplation is the time when an individual is aware there is a problem and is considering taking action to resolve it. Preparation refers to the time when an individual commits to taking action sometime within the next 30 days. Action is the busiest time. There are noticeable efforts to change the targeted behavior. Maintenance is the stage when a person tries to stabilize the behavior change and prevent relapse. Termination is the final stage, this occurs when there is zero temptation to revert back to the old behavior. Healthcare administrators can utilize the Prochaska Stages of Change model to assists themselves in developing procedures to support patients or subordinates who will benefit from behavior modification. It helps one to recognize that the customary counseling and patient is not always effective with all individuals’. Being familiar with the stages through in which individuals pass during the course of successfully altering a behavior permits us to be able to fashion interventions to the individual. Our......

...Introduction Parents can expect a lot of physical changes in their children between ages two and twelve years old. The parent will to expect their children to change in their brains, their creative abilities and in the way they play in addition to the amount of food they eat. The ages from two to six years are considered the early childhood years, and between six to twelve years are considered the middle childhood period. During these two periods there are four kinds of themes: sources of development, plasticity, continuity/discontinuity and individual differences. The sources of development are genetic, social, or cultured development. Genetic known as nature vs. nurture the plasticity is how much the development can be changed or manipulated, Human development during this time has same part continues and same part expect going the sages. Even during expected stages we don’t know for sure exactly when the child will be able to do particular activities. This paper will discuss ten events to expect in their child’s life. Sleep: In the stage of two and twelve-year old many the parents expect a number of physical changes during the early childhood and middle childhood in terms of the child’s sleeping period.

Physical Change

...PHYSICAL CHANGE Physical changes are changes affecting the form of a chemical substance, but not its chemical composition. Physical changes are used to separate mixtures into their component compounds, but cannot usually be used to separate compounds into chemical elements or simpler compounds.[1] Physical changes occur when objects or substances undergo a change that does not change their chemical composition. This contrasts with the concept of chemical change in which the composition of a substance changes or one or more substances combine or break up to form new substances. In general a physical change is reversible using physical means. For example salt dissolved in water can be recovered by allowing the water to evaporate. A physical change involves a change in physical properties. Examples of physical properties include melting, transition to a gas, change of strength, change of durability, changes to crystal form, textural change, shape, size, colour, volume and density. An example of a physical change is the process of tempering steel to form a knife blade. A steel blank is repeatedly heated and hammered which changes the hardness of the steel, its flexibility and its ability to maintain a sharp edge. Methods Heating and cooling Many elements and some compounds change from solids to liquids and from liquids to gases when heated and the reverse when cooled. Some substances such as iodine and carbon dioxide go directly from solid to gas in a process called......

Do not test the odor of the samples. 2. In this lab the test tubes can get very dirty and cleaning is difficult. Your test tube may break, but don’t worry about it you will not need them again this term. Dispose carefully in the trash. Have you made any changes to the procedure? Please explain: Fill out the data sheet (page 3) for the experiment and answer the questions. Note: read the lab introduction for clarification on the difference between physical and chemical changes. Remember that a physical change often occurs during a chemical change, but a chemical change does not always happen when a physical change occurs. If you still have questions ask your instructor. From experiment # 1 we learned that a chemical change results in a color change, the formation of bubbles, the formation of a precipitate, or a change of temperature. Keep that in mind when you are deciding whether a physical or chemical change has occurred. Data Table (8 points) Read carefully before you begin your experiment! Be complete when writing your observations. One word observations are not usually complete. If there is a color change, include the color before and after. For...

Theories of Ageing, Physical Changes Associate with Ageing

...indicates that regular exercise be it of the mind or physical exercise, keeps the older adult healthy and stimulated. Therefore it could potentially ward off diseases, viruses and infections whilst allowing the older adult to preserve relationships. Continuity Theory: “The continuity theory is one of three major psychosocial theories which describe how people develop in old age. The other two psychosocial theories are the disengagement theory, with which the continuity theory comes to odds, and the activity theory upon which the continuity theory modifies and elaborates.” ( The continuity theory is exactly how it sounds, studies have shown that as adults mature they try and hang on to things that they find familiar. Things from the past can be very helpful in comforting and elderly adult such as a familiar face, or a familiar song. They can ease people and reassure them that everything is going to be okay. Whilst some things can hazardous such as a lady could be used to going dancing every Saturday night but as she grows older her bones become brittle therefore endangering her.

P1: Describe Physical, Intellectual, Emotional and Social Development for Each of the Life Stages of an Individual.

...Conception Physical = A human begins with conception. A fertile woman usually produces one egg each month, roughly two weeks after the last menstrual period. The egg cell travels from the ovary, along the fallopian tube towards the uterus. If sexual intercourse takes place while the eggs are in the fallopian tube, there is a possibility of conception. Millions of sperm are ejaculated by a man during orgasm. Just one sperm may fertilise the egg. Fertilisation means that the genetic material in the sperm joins with the genetic material in the egg to start a new life. Only about half of all fertilised eggs develop to become babies. Many eggs are lost without a woman knowing that fertilisation ever happened. Intellectual = N/A Emotional = N/A Social = N/A Pregnancy and birth Physical = pregnancy begins when a sperm penetrates an egg. One to one and a half days later, the single fertilised egg cell begins to divide. After two or three days there are enough new cells to make the fertilised egg the size of a pin head. This collection of cells travels to the lining of the uterus where it becomes anchored. The developing collection of cells is now called an embryo it is attached to the wall of the uterus by a placenta. Once the embryo is attached to the uterus wall, a chemical signal stops the women from having another menstrual period. After eight weeks, the embryo may have grown to between 3 and 4 cm, has a recognisable heartbeat and the beginnings of eyes, ears, mouth,...

The Effects of Physical and Psychological Changes Associated with Ageing Referring to Marilyn Monroe.

...The effects of physical and psychological changes associated with ageing referring to Marilyn Monroe. Physical changes during the ageing process occurs at all stages during the human life, body is constantly changing with age. Marilyn Monroe unfortunately died before she reached old age where the more significant ageing process takes place. However in her adulthood she did show significant signs of ageing before her death even though she only died at the age of 38. Stress and anxiety are a factors of speeding up the ageing process which is probably the reason why Marilyn started show physical changes so early in her life. Mostly the changes where in her face which was made obvious to the public because being a model and also actress her face was everywhere. When you start to age the face loses elasticity so it no longer look plump and youthful it beings to get fine lines and wrinkles. Accusations about Marilyn having Botox and other facial plastic surgery to slow down the process so she could keep that youthful look she was so ironically famous for. If Marilyn had lived for a longer length of time it would have been more noticeable the ageing process because her hair would have started to turn grey and maybe even thin out, however now with hair dye a lot of older people do tend to find the grey to give off the appearance of being younger. Another physical sign of ageing would have been her organs slowly decreasing in rate of which they function, such as the liver......

John Kotter's Eight Stage Change Model

...discusses John Kotter’s Eight-Stage Change Model and how it can be used as a guide when implementing change within an organization. The roles of various stakeholders including senior and emerging leaders, managers and employees throughout the eight stages are defined. In addition, factors which can contribute to a failed organization change initiative are discussed. Transforming an organization from a sub-optimizing enterprise of independently functioning departments to an organization that embraces cross-functional teams and customer centric integrated processes that focuses on delivering quality products and services requires a well defined and implemented plan of action. In addition, transforming an organization also requires a large amount time, financial resources and most importantly risk. Published success rates of some change management programs are as low as 10% (Oakland & Tanner, 2007). Shrinking profit margins and increasing competition both globally and locally require initiatives that are implemented by organizations to deliver the desired results. A number of organizational change models are available for an organization to use when transforming an organization. John Kotter’s Eight-Stage Change Model provides a framework that allows an organization the time needed to implement change as well as inclusion and participation of all stakeholders throughout the organizational transformation. John Kotter’s Eight-Stage Change Model is a “comprehensive......

Adolesects and Physical Changes

...Adolescents Discovering Their Identity through Physical, Cognitive, Emotional, and Social Development The Changing Years Even though children go through physical, cognitive, emotional, and social changes during their adolescence years not all react the same way to these changes. Throughout these years adolescences ask “Who am I?”(Vander Zanden, 2000, p. 360). Biological changes occurring during this period of life affects children’s physical, cognitive, emotional, and social development. These changes cause the children’s way of thinking to change in relationship to others as well as to themselves (Vander Zanden, 2000).   Physical Development The onset of puberty occurs in this time of life. Puberty is the beginning stage into adulthood but children must go through many changes through the journey. Adolescences oftentimes find this stage of development dramatic. Females may find this time more dramatic than males. “Girls who have been advanced in physical maturity since the prenatal period, reach puberty, on average, two years earlier than boys” (Berk, 2010, p. 363). Both male and female adolescences experience growth spurts through this time frame, which is the first outward sign of the onset of puberty. Hormone levels increase in both males and females. Female begin to develop breast and pubic hair begins to grow. This is the time females normally start their menstruation cycle. Males develop pubic and facial hair at this time. Male’s penis and testes......
