The journey to a sounder mind begins

Thanks for joining me!

I am Junior Religious studies major at Elizabethtown college. I Decided to take General Psychology to try and get a better understanding of how the mind works. After I graduate Elizabethtown I want to move on to a field in youth ministry. I want to be able to make an impact in a child’s life. I believe that getting a better understanding of the human mind will help me in my future. I don’t have much of a background on psychology I took a class in high school but that’s about it. When I hear the word psychology I automatically think of mental health because they are very closely associated.  The three major topics I am interested in learning are how to improve memory, how to get good sleep, and coping with stress. I picked these three topics because I believe learning about them will help improve my life. The three things I am not interested in learning about are Anxiety the brain and the history of psychology. The reason I picked anxiety is because I was recently diagnosed with it and am still learning how to control it. I picked the other two because they just don’t seem as interesting as the other subjects. The thing I want most out of this course is a general understanding so I can  try and be more compassionate to others. I want to be able to try and help people in their time of need.
