Setting Smart Goals.

mail.google.com99

Having goals plays a large part in how happy (and unhappy ) we are.
When we are successful in achieving or moving towards our goals we are happier.

On the other hand we may feel blocked or stuck and unmotivated to achieve the goals we have set for ourselves.
Goals need to be structured much like any project I.e. if you want to paint a room you will have a structure around it , choose the color get the paint, brushes etc prepare the room and so on.

Think about the terms.
1.What is my goal
2.What are the rules for achieving that goal.
3.What skills do I need to achieve my goal?
When a goal is structured in this way it is engaged in differently.
Allow yourself success by setting small achievable goals.A goal can be set on a daily basis.

  • Take the stairs instead of the lift
  • Get up ten minutes earlier
  • Make real tea in a tea pot with real tea leafs the ritual is very calming.

Small goals give instant feedback, they lift our mood and have a lasting effect on our lives.

Concentration and Attention

THE ENERGISER

The student sits comfortably in a chair, head resting on a desk or table. She places her hands on the desk in front of her shoulders, fingers pointing slightly inward. As she inhales she experiences her breath flowing up the midline like a fountain of energy, lifting first her forehead, then her neck, and finally her upper back. Her diaphragm and chest stay open and her shoulders stay relaxed. The release is just as important as the lift; she curls her head toward her chest, then brings her forehead down to rest on the desk. This back-and-forward movement of the head increases circulation to the frontal lobe for greater comprehension and rational thinking.

TEACHING TIPS

• Keep the shoulders apart and relaxed.

• Remember to breathe into the base of the spine.

• Experience your breath (rather than your muscles) as the source of your strength.

• Repeat the movement three times, noting how it is easier with each repetition.

VARIATIONS

• The Energiser can be done face down on a mat. The student relaxes her body, placing her hands under her shoulders with palms against the mat. She then lifts her head, then her upper back, as before. The hips and lower body stay relaxed, touching the mat.

Exam Stress.

Some students handle exam pressure a lot better than others and some students have all their study skills into place to allow them to remember a lot more for their exams.

Students can study better and they can reduce the stress they are going through with simple Brain Gym techniques.
