→ Exercise 2B: Google + You
Consider the impact of nutrition on your life and your work. Do you have a reason (physical, emotional, environmental, social) to focus on improved nutrition?
- Visit your personal reflections page, and:
- Write yourself a note about the impact of (good or bad) nutrition on your life.
- Write a goal for positive dietary change.
- Optionally, to help fuel your thoughts, visit https://NutritionFacts.org or https://Google.com or other search engine for a subject of interest, and see if you can learn more about a related role of nutrition. Sample Google searches:
common vitamin deficiencies alcoholism • impact of factory farming • nutrition anxiety • nutrition depression • nutrition hippocampus • nutrition productivity • nutritional deficiency dysmenorrhea • nutritional deficiency menstrual cramps • nutritional deficiency mental health • nutritional deficiency psychiatric • refined grain vs whole grain • (something else of interest, related to nutrition)
Dietary improvements can be positive, even life-changing! Yet we acknowledge that some impacts may be not-so-positive. For instance: if you eat healthfully, you may be challenged by others, or teased or told that you are an extremist, or that you are no fun. Or people may become jealous of your health. Or you may find that desired health benefits don’t happen very quickly (or at all), and feel frustrated.
Do you value nutrition enough to strive for its positive impacts? The purpose of this persona exercise is to be a “gut check” on the role that nutrition plays in your life and work.
