Children spend 8,000 hours in school during their educational journey. The aim of AM Hustle is to provide a safe space for young adults to communicate about hardships that could affect their studies, with a primary focus on wellbeing, mental health and quality of life.
As parents, you will value the need of accessible platforms that allows children that are particularly stressed, anxious and lack motivation to join a community of like-minded peers, in order to help them combat negative feelings. The benefits of my mindfulness sessions are emotional, cognitive, interpersonal, professional, and practical – all of which are vital for a child’s educational journey.
There are 24 hours in a day – 8 are spent sleeping, 8 are spent studying/ working. How is your child spending their remaining 8? AM Hustle helps participants to consciously goal-set and plan their days so that they are in complete control of their success and educational journey.
I start the 30-minute session with some guided meditation and breathing, which helps participants notice what their mind is doing. When you notice what is happening around you, you focus more deeply, and that attention to your own senses will help you improve in diverse areas of your life.
I then move onto our gratitudes, asking participants to write down everything they are grateful for in that present moment. This encourages space from negative thoughts and helps us to process our emotions in a private manner, allowing us to get to know ourselves better.
The next element is their vision and affirmations, thinking about their future and the hurdles they have to cross in order to reach their goals, without being judged. The non-judgment part means that we simply have an experience without contemplating if the experience is good or bad. By doing this, we develop more self-awareness, emotional balance, and impulse control. It’s about recognising our inner and outer experiences and understanding how they affect our well-being.
A short clip or live interview from a well-known member of society follows, and we dive deeper into the points made, with relation to ‘success’ and living in abundance.
Finally, the sessions finishes with our daily 5-point ‘action’ list. We always do better when we’re able to pay attention to what we’re doing, right? Improved focus and goals can help you r child achieve at higher levels in all aspects of their life, and I encourage them to include some non-negotiable family time on a daily basis, a physical fitness routine, and an activity that is going to propel them towards reaching your future goals, whether that be 30 minutes of a documentary or tapping into a new podcast related to their dream career.
Young people who practice mindfulness report a greater sense of optimism and well-being, and a reception in rumination, depression, anxiety, stress and anger. These habits will significantly enhance their vision, help them become motivated, and improve their confidence and well-being – if carried out with the right intentions.
Book in a call with me to see how the AM Hustle sessions can support your child – I’ll be happy to chat through the options and help you select the best plan for them.
