When it comes to mental and physical wellbeing, as a College we strongly believe it is important to “walk it like you talk it”.
Hence our Wellbeing Day for all College staff on day 1 of term, which focused on how each staff member could maximise their own wellbeing as well as strategies and ideas for teachers to share with students.
As part of this day, we had two excellent guest speakers. Dr Craig Hassed from Monash University’s Department of General Practice spoke at length on ‘mindfulness’ – essentially the practice of ‘living in the now’. Dr Hassed is an internationally recognised speaker on holistic, integrative and mind-body medicine. His presentation set out some of the evidence linking the practice of mindfulness to improved cognitive and academic performance, increased immunity and reduction in stress.
Hugh van Cuylenburg, founder of The Resilience Project, also spoke about his work in the area of mental health and resilience, sharing some practical ways to help build resilience. Volunteering in an underprivileged school in the Himalayas helped him discover resilience in its purest form and he has since developed and facilitated programs for schools, National Rugby League clubs, the AFL, Cricket Australia and the Australian Netball team.
I am including here some resources from Dr Hassed – a mindfulness description and useful daily mindfulness tips. Dr Hassed also has a free online mindfulness course.
