G.U.M. – Grow Up Mindful
Children in the K-5 age range are going through a lot of life’s experiences for the first time. With the exception of a year or two of preschool, most kids in this age range are going to school for the first time. They are making new friends, socially interacting, and rapidly growing both physically and mentally. Simultaneously, they are dealing the stress of some responsibility, learning to deal with bullying, and battling the social challenges that come with being in school. These situations are all occurring rapidly and at once, causing potential problems for the kids in the K-5 age. Many people think in terms of grade levels too often and forget that these children are ranging from age 5 to only age 10. Thankfully, the same rapid change that can cause problems for children in this age range is a fantastic soil in which to plant the seeds of mindfulness. How about mindfulness for middle schoolers? High schoolers? Why mindfulness in high school is arguably the most important and how to go about implementing programs. All this and more covered in the book Grow Up Mindful.
The Short and Tall of Sleep
From an increased metabolism to better immunity against sicknesses and improved athletic performance to reducing the risk of depression and anxiety, the benefits of sleep are numerous. Unlike hitting the gym and physically challenging yourself in order to see results, reaping these benefits is simpler and far more pleasurable. Many people struggle to find adequate time to sleep thanks to busy schedules and distractions that keep us out of bed. Others struggle with problems like insomnia that make it even harder to fall asleep and stay asleep. So, while going to bed is certainly easier than sticking to a diet or workout routine, it should still be treated like those other activities. In other words, sleeping shouldn’t be just another part of the day, but rather it should be treated as an important activity that deserves a priority spot in your daily routine. . Throughout this book, you’ll learn the importance of sleep as it is framed around the many positive health benefits that come with it. Each part will focus on one aspect of sleep before breaking it down into specific examples of how sleep impacts the various systems in your body. It will also give you an easy-to-understand introduction to the science behind sleep and some common abnormalities that may affect the way you rest. Finally, you’ll learn helpful tips to get more sleep and create your very own sleep goals as the first step to a healthier life. By first learning why sleeping is so important and then putting that knowledge into action, you’ll be well on your way to living a more rested, healthy life. Although sleeping is different for everybody, the importance of it cannot be understated. Uncovering the benefits of sleep is both exciting and rewarding.
