exam season: establishing healthy boundaries

Episode #7

How to establish healthy boundaries: exam season

Subscribe to our YouTube Channel

In this month's episode of The Mindful Toolbox, we're talking about how we can support children in exam season.

Exam season can be very stressful and at times, all-consuming. Left unchecked, this focus on exams can lead to stress, decrease in motivation, isolation, and anxiety.

Instead of encouraging this exam culture, it's important to talk about and model a strong sense of self-care. By teaching our children how to set healthy boundaries now, we can be sure they will thrive in their futures.

I'd love to continue this conversation with you.

If your family is dealing with a big transition,

If your family has a busy schedule and there hardly feels time to sit and breathe,

If you know your child is struggling to prepare for upcoming exams,

This training is for you.

I talk about...

  • The work-life 'balance'
  • Setting healthy boundaries
  • Knowing what self-care means to us
  • Planning self care into a busy schedule
