Health and Well-Being coaching for Education
- Posted by wellness
What we do
Academic education can be stressful for many reasons – exam stress, peer pressure and physical, hormonal and general life changes to name but a few.
Wellness for Life’s Health and Well-being programmes for education support and enhance learning by equipping students with the necessary life skills to cope during challenging and transitional times in their academic lives.
Our 360-degree approach to well-being focuses on the connection between social and emotional health and physical and mental health. We believe that learning to eat healthily and re-energise by improving sleep quality provides the brain and body with maximum energy. Developing a healthy relationship and attitude towards stress and learning how to harness it, can optimise academic performance.
Understanding how to practice self-care, set healthy boundaries and be kind towards oneself and others, are just some of the skills we share throughout our coaching.
How we do it
Our experienced coaches are trained to design and deliver physical stress release programmes and exercises that strengthen neural pathways in the brain. Our training is based on the principles of Positive Psychology, Neuroscience, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. We break these down into digestible and practical strategies, that can help both students and teachers to create optimum health.
