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.
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.
Watch the recording of this webinar in the video below.
Join us Thursday, 21 May, as we interview Dean McCoubrey from MySociaLife, South Africa’s Premier Digital Life Skills Program. He will be sharing tips on balancing social media and life online to help you lower anxiety.
