Social Wellness refers to one's ability to interact with people around them. It involves using good communications skills, having meaningful relationships, respecting yourself and others, and creating a support system that includes family members and friends.

I like to think of myself as socially well because I’m really easy to get along with and I have a good sense of humor. It’s always a plus to have a good sense of humor because, if you can make people laugh people will like to be around you. Being socially well is more than just having a good sense of humor.  Having good people skills also ties into social wellnes because if you constantly approach people the wrong way, you will constantly get into altercations. Also, no one likes being around a rude person.

Stress affects us all. Recently, I realized that my stress occurs because of my foolish decisions. I tend to often cope with the negative outcome of the situation. For example, when it comes to school I always do my homework assignments late at night. Procrastinating is not wise. At the end of the day, I regret wasting my time. Either I am tired and end up not doing the assignments at all, or have a surplus of homework to do. When I see my grades, I have sense of anxiety because I am capable of excelling in all my classes. I am not mediocre, but I have to get out of that lazy mentality.

My point of view on a lot has changed after watching Fruitvale Station. I personally feel like what Oscar Grant went through is horrible, just imagining what his family went through is so emotional. I honestly feel like us youths should have a say so in how things happen … like I feel us as teens go through the most with so many young people dying that we know, or just know of.

Watching Fruitvale Station changed my outlook on police. For the worse. My biggest issue with the police is their "profiling." I already think they do unnecessary things when it comes down to the color of a person’s skin, how a person is dressed, or how they look. 

Police are supposed to keep peace and order, and ultimately, keep everyone safe. However, more than often, police are starting to hurt people. And their reason? Because some fee as if they can just do whatever they want.

As a new school year starts, there’s always unfinished drama from last year or even the year before. Negative people will most likely bring up the past, and if that happens, those are the ones you should try to avoid.

The happiest moment in a women, men, and family life is being pregnant and knowing the fact that you're about to be a mother.  One thing about being  pregnant is that you have to maintain a proper healthy body and eat right so the baby can be healthy and strong.

Between 70-89 percent of sudden cardiac arrest occurs in men. I don't know about you, but I never knew the percentage was so high. Some symptoms could be pain or discomfort in the jaw, neck, or back; feeling weak, light-headed,chest pain or discomfort; pain or discomfort in the arms or shoulders; and shortness of breath. But there aren't always clear signs and symptoms for heart disease, so it's good to go in for check up often with the doctor. Also, it's important to stay healthy and maintain a good diet. Having a poor diet, smoking or being overweight are all things that can lead to heart disease.

As you may know, one of the leading death causes of men is smoking. Stress is something everyone encounters in their life, and some may say that lighting one can make their day less stressful. Well, it will even be more stressful when he/she can only live 14 years less than non-smokers, the average of how long a non smoker live rather than a smoker.

Just for being human we are prone to health issues, but some health issues are more gender specific than others. For example, females can’t have prostate cancer because they don’t have prostate glands and males can’t have cervical cancer because they don’t have a cervix. Some common health issues for men are: athlete’s foot, foreskin, prostate health, testicular health, and urinary tract infections. One rare male health issue is Tinea Cruis. Another name for this is, Jock Itch, a fungal infection caused by tight clothes that don’t allow air to circulate around the body.

Diabetes is a very important health matter and should be treated with care. Diabetes is a disease where a person doesn't process food the proper way and has too watch their sugar levels. I personally don't know what it feels like to have diabetes, but I am close to someone who does.
