Outlined on Tuesday 25th March during the lecture, due Tuesday 8th April at 9am (2 weeks to do it).
This assignment will provide a creative as well as technical outlet for you to report on specific psychological factors involved in physical activity, e.g. motivation. 500-1,000 words (not including reference citations or the reference list - write the word count at the bottom of your blog, above the Reference list).
JUST WRITE ONE (hypothetical) BLOG POST.

You want to FOCUS on both aspects of how psychology affects exercise, e.g. how motivation of your client affects exercise habits, as well as how exercise affects psychology, e.g. how doing more exercise will improve your client’s anxiety issues. I suggest doing your hypothetical blog in Word first (and saving regularly!) and then transferring this information to Moodle and editing it to ‘polish’ it up. Don’t worry about adding ‘tags’. And please note that every blog is only viewable to you and the marker – so you can write private personal stuff about your own journey if you like (of course backing it up and relating it to evidence) Use the UNSW logo here as a header image in your blog post (you don’t need to reference this picture): http://rebeccareynoldsunsw.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/new-image.png Take note of this guide here for how to write a good...
