The main topic I will be addressing throughout this course is the importance of physical education. Through my schooling experience I always loved gym. The majority of the year was spent playing games and being physically active, while 1-2 weeks were dedicated to health class. Now as a very high-energy student, the health section of gym class was never my favourite. As I reflect upon the health sections of class I truly believe they should incorporate information about living a healthy lifestyle and the importance of diet and nutrition. If physical education is educating oneself about their physical body, then diet and nutrition should be a heavy focus as they play a crucial role in the well being of a human being. I believe that simply teaching students about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and more importantly how to live a healthy lifestyle will play a large role in increasing the wellness of our students.
