What do you do for a living (school/job)?
I'm currently a student in Physical Therapy school.
Do you think about your health?
Yes, quite often. We're constantly discussing how we can improve the health of our patients in school and naturally I think about my own health too.
How do you feel about the way that you eat?
I would say I eat fairly healthy most of the time. I do allow myself to splurge and have a few cheat meals at the end of the week.
How active were you when you were younger and what activities did you do for exercise? Did you have P.E.?
I was always involved in sports when I was younger. I played softball, basketball, soccer, and ran cross-country. Some days I had 3 different sport practices in the same day so I was pretty active. We had P.E. in elementary school and middle school where I grew up.
What is your dream in life? Are you working towards that dream?
My dream is to be a physical therapist and own my own practice. I'm currently in school working towards my doctorate in physical therapy.
How stressful is your life right now?
It can be stressful throughout school when exams and assignments pile up, but I think I do a good job managing my stress.
How do you cope with your stress?
I make sure to stay organize and prioritize things in my life. I also exercise regularly and that seems to help decrease my stress significantly.
Do you know how to exercise properly?
Yes. I played sports my entire life so I learned how to exercise properly during that time. I'm also learning to teach people how to exercise properly in school.
Do you know how to eat healthy?
Yes. I don't always practice it 100% of the time but I do know how to eat properly.
What changes do you want to see in the health industry?
I want people to focus more on prevention than treatment. I think this is the next big step for healthcare in America. We could save people a lot of time and money if we prevented injury and disease in the first place.
Do you think being healthy will ever be at the forefront in society?
I hope so. I think there are a good number of people who focus on maintaining healthy lifestyles, but we could definitely increase this number.
