Youth nurture has many facets and its future- to build the resilience and self esteem of young people. To give them the tools to manoeuvre their way in the twenty first century. Giving them the skills to manage their own mental health and grow into happy and healthy adults.
Resilience is 'the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties', it can determine if we fight or crumble when life gets hard, it can govern our choices to ‘show up’ in life, between success and non-success. Studies now show that resilience can be learnt, this is down to brain elasticity. Many years ago, it was felt our brain was fixed, you stopped leaning ‘soft skills’ once you stared school, from then on you were you, you just learnt the formal skills to get a job, pretty much like a robot. It was later discovered that the brain can be trained to learn anything we wished. Many studies have been conducted and many brain scans taken, and the clear conclusion is that anyone can learn anything they choose.
Balding resilience is a life long journey & we want to give young people the tools to harness resilience and intern increase self-esteem.
What Is Mindfulness?
Essentially, mindfulness is teaching young people how to recognise their own emotional worth, conciously relate to others in a positive, compassionate manner & to resolve everyday conflicts in a positive manner.
How It Works
Life demands we process the immediate at breakneck speed & sometimes we react without thinking. By re-training the mind to better consider the present, we harness greater self-awareness, resulting in more balanced reactions.
Mindfulness holds the potential to deliver a transformative impact on the lives of young people, ultimately leading to a more balanced, happier & compassionate society - & that all begins with flexible minds!
