A healthy body and mind go hand in hand. When we maintain sound health, our physiology lends itself to a well functioning brain. In addition, it is important for students to understand and transform their negative feelings (which may be about school, home, or work life) into positive ones which lead to an increase in the amount of connections in the brain to expand all possibilities.
We can turn feelings of fear and anxiety into excitement and motivation. We have the power to calm the mind and quiet external noise to not only improve our learning capacity, but make it a much more enjoyable process.
