We are all different but one thing we have in common is that when we experience stress, we are likely to experience bouts of anxiety. This is a completely natural response as our brains try to protect us from possible harm. Although it is not always easy to control feelings of anxiousness,  there are a couple of things that are within our control that we can start to implement to lessen these feelings. 

During the lockdown, our team were approached by many parents and educators who were concerned about the stress and anxiety that learners were experiencing during this period. While we are not qualified to comment on these feelings, we are able to bring in some guest speakers who are qualified to discuss these topics. 

How to ensure your kids retain a champion mindset during this crisis. Learn from the method of sports champions. 

In our first webinar, we invited guest speaker, clinical and sports psychologist, Toni Gaddie to join us. In this webinar, Toni walked us through a tried and tested formula that World Champion Sportspeople utilise to bring out their full potential during periods of uncertainty and intense pressure.

Toni has participated twice in the World Economic Forum in Davos where she workshopped with leaders in sport, business, and life.  She is the co-founder of The Champions Academy with her sister Rikki Gaddie Dworcan.

Understanding social media and life online to reduce anxiety and produce your best

On Thursday, 21 May, we interviewed Dean McCoubrey from MySociaLife, South Africa’s Premier Digital Life Skills Program. He shared tips on balancing social media and life online to help you lower anxiety.

MySociaLife is a premier Digital Life Skills Program, taught in schools from Grade 4 to Grade 11 learners. The 8-module course educates teens and pre-teens to become safer and smarter digital citizens who will then be able to differentiate themselves and excel in The Fourth Industrial Revolution – the primary objective shared by schools, students, their parents and their teachers. Their areas of expertise span cyberbullying, privacy, sexuality online, critical thinking, identity, digital footprint, a digital values system and brain chemistry and human performance.
