“What do you want to do, when you grow up?” For those children and teenagers who do not know the answer to this question, feelings of uncertainty and anxiety can replace the dreaming, innovative and optimistic nature of our children and teenagers.
Instead of focusing on the ‘what’, maybe the focus could be on the ‘how’ do you want to be when you grow up? In answering this question all parents would say, “happy and healthy!” Most, if not all children and teenagers would agree.
As the weather seasons begin to change, so too can our motivation levels towards health and exercise!
Practicing as a Mindfulness facilitator and Accredited Exercise Physiologist my mission is to improve the health functioning of a child or adult through exercise and mindfulness therapy, and to do this successfully a behaviour approach is required. Understanding the components of health gives greater importance to why the person is participating in exercise therapy and lifestyle change.
All dressed up in my favourite jeans and shirt, I am excited by the prospect of feeling and looking good! However, I have a nagging uncomfortable feeling in my stomach, something is not quite right.
Actually, the feeling is not in my stomach, it is my stomach! My favourite jeans, do not feel so favourite anymore, in fact they feel a little too tight.
