What do you do for a living (school/job)?
I am currently working as a Product Engineer at Cisco Systems. I will be starting grad school this month at SJSU and will be studying General Engineering.
Do you think about your health?
I take my health into consideration a lot within the week. As I get older, I realize that staying healthy is more important to live longer.
How do you feel about the way that you eat?
I eat relatively healthy. I have improved over the last 2-3 years substantially. I do not eat fast food as often as I used to, but will treat myself to eating out about twice a week. I have incorporated eating a lot of fruits and vegetables into my current diet.
How active were you when you were younger and what activities did you do for exercise? Did you have P.E.?
I was very active growing up. From elementary school to graduating high school, I was heavily involved in sports. I played soccer in elementary school until 4th grade and picked up basketball around 3rd grade. I started playing football and running track in 7th grade, and I participated in organized football and track throughout middle and high school. I also played organized basketball up to 9th grade. I did have P.E. in grade school, and it was one of my favorite classes.
What is your dream in life? Are you working towards that dream?
My dream is to be financially stable and to be able to own a mini business on the side. Ownership is a huge responsibility and it takes business knowledge, skill, and luck to keep a business stable and running. I believe I am setting a foundation for this dream currently. I have picked up on reading books again to further expand my mind to think in broader ways.
How stressful is your life right now?
Not too stressful, but will get harder when I start grad school. I always feel stressed when my time to get tasks done is limited.
How do you cope with your stress?
I cope with stress by communing with others in social or religious settings. I also like to get my mind off stressful thoughts by working out and playing basketball.
Do you know how to exercise properly?
I believe I know ways to exercise properly, but do not always do so. Exercising properly consists of proper stretching and repetitive training of the muscle groups you seek to work out.
Do you know how eat healthy?
I know the ideal foods to eat to be healthy, but do have cravings for unhealthy snacks and such at times. I will like to improve in this area.
What changes do you want to see in the health industry?
I would like to see the health industry get more traction from people. I would like to see proper eating and good workout programs advertised more in America.
Do you think being healthy will ever be at the forefront in society?
There is a chance for it to be at the forefront, but it is challenging in this technology heavy era.
