Food For Thought

Seven steps to a healthier life

A. First of all, dieting does not only consist of dashing to the supermarket and glancing through shelves in search of a miserable, tiny chocolate bar and the word ‘diet’ written in gold letters. Dieting is about balancing the food you eat! In other words, you cannot eat some green salad and sip a glass of grapefruit juice and, then, ask for three hamburgers and a pack of chips. You should think about the food you eat as if you had to put it on a scale. Instead of dragging your feet when you step on a scale, consider fast handwriting in calorie scale. How many calories am I supposed to have on a daily basis? And how many calories do I actually eat?

B. Taking down the amount of calories you have is not the only step for a healthier life. Exercising, whether we like it or not, is vital to our organs and body systems. Have you got any problems with diabetes? Then walking is important to help your pancreas reactivate itself so as to burn the sugar and the carbohydrates. Whatever physical activity you take up, you can be certain that the first one to be benefitted from it is your own body.

C. Breathing fresh air is crucial to your body as regular exercise. Wherever you live, wherever you work or study in, there should always be some free time to rest under a tree or a garden for a few minutes. However, good air quality should also be followed by a deep breath. This way, inhaling and exhaling can actually feed your cells and lungs with oxygen while reinvigorating your mind and body.

D. As well as oxygen, our bodies need the most wonderful cleansing system – Water! Yes, you should drink about two litres of water per day. This is crucial to the function of your kidneys as they do keep kidney stones away. Water hydrates your cells, and it is a refreshing drink—no wonder why the human body is 60 or 70 per cent water.

E. A change in your lifestyle is inevitably important to the quality of your life. No matter how hardworking you are at home and in your workplace, there is a time when you should definitely avoid stress! This includes getting involved in stressful situations, such as family conflicts, heavy workload and unnecessary emotional distress. You are not a hero, and if you carry such problems over your shoulders, you will not do anyone any good.

F. At the end of the day, there should be a relaxing night. You have probably heard that you should sleep between 7 and 8 hours per night. This is vital to the replenishment of energy stores, repair of damaged tissues, recovery of cells and maintenance of our bodies and minds. For this reason, the next time you go for a session of sleep deprivation, you should remember the effects you are missing out from a good night’s sleep.

G. Last but not least, you should take some time to relax and smile! Smiling attracts other smiles and can make your life much happier. You will also feel less tense, worried and anxious, and your life can be changed into a state of relaxation and happiness.

ASSESSMENT GUIDELINES

1. Field trip – The first assessment consists of a trip to the London area known as ‘The City of London’ or Square Mile, as it covers about a mile (2.6km2). It is a modern conurbation and holds UK financial centres and industry. You will spend a day walking through the monuments and buildings that are of historical and cultural importance and are expected to take leaflets and talk to engineers and architects about the development of this urban area.

Portfolio – Once the first assessment is completed, you will build up a portfolio on the geographical and urban planning of the ‘City of London’. You are expected to consider both the emergent growth companies that have settled there and the environmental impact on the site.

Further information:

• The field trip will take place during week 9. This is a date set between Monday, 4th April and Friday, 8th April. Two tutors will accompany the group and guide them through the major buildings. Introductory information will also be given to the students.

• Professionals such as planning managers, engineers and architects will be available in specific buildings. Students should take the initiative to talk to them, i.e., write down relevant questions and interview them.

• The portfolio should be handed in by the end of week 14. Therefore, the deadline for this assignment is 13th May. Only under special circumstances will this assignment be considered after this date.

Building up a portfolio means that each student will organise a set of appropriate informative leaflets and information sheets, responses during the interviews and their own reflections on it. The development of reflective skills is an important issue, and they are to be assessed and evaluated in this assignment.
