Hi everyone, I know I have not posted in a while, but for Health class we have to do PYPs, ( pick your project). I immediately saw this on the list and took it as a good opportunity to post. If you read this and have something to say, write it to me in the comments. Thank you and enjoy:
In health we were introduced to a variety of topics, I chose to focus on one: influences. In our lives we have many influences: internal and external. External influences are everything around us that impacts us in some way. For example: family, friends, and even things like advertisements and school education. Internal influences are what we think and do, our habits. These are usually bigger than external influences, since our greatest influence is our self. Family ,or who you were raised with, is one of the most influential because they set an example for how you act, think, and feel. Friends are very similar, as you make new ones or lose old ones, you learn lessons. Things like advertisements and school influence us in that ads pelt us with messages on how to look or what to buy. Also, the fact that they are almost everywhere helps. School provides or should provide us with knowledge. This learning helps us to be successful in life. Now, internal influence: it can be influenced by external influence. Internal effect is what we think or judge about our selves. We can learn from our family how to behave or wear. I am religious, so I think God can influence us in both ways. Influences are a big part of our lives, they teach us how or what to think, learn, wear, act, and feel.
