Episode 13 Moving is FUN with Dale Sidebottom

Be Fit 2 Sit Podcast

Moving is FUN and benefits us in a myriad of ways! Special guest, Dale Sidebottom from ‘Energetic Education’ and ‘Jugar Life’ shares his insights and ideas on how we can encourage ourselves, our family and community members to engage in PLAY to improve our mental and physical health. Dale shares his journey from PE teacher to international presenter, and how he’s discovered that using play and games helps him build positive connections and relationships with students and workers quickly and autherntically, so they can engage, learn and move well. Dale’s found that ‘Play-based mindfulness’ is a great way to take a great to bring joy and set a positive tone in your home, your workplace or classroom, to improve people’s mental and physical health. Dale shares his tips on incorporating this philosophy into our daily routines… Instead of wearing ‘busyness’ as a badge of honour, set aside even a few minutes regularly to schedule in ‘playdates’ with yourself, family members, school or work mates, to take an active break from the stress and strain your daily activities… These might be dice games, or clapping games, or moves to music- the options are endless- and you can get lots of inspiration and free resources from Dale’s website. Just keep a few guidelines in mind with group games- which Dale shares- so your activities are inclusive, keep people engaged and feeling safe, rather than focussing on winning and losing. 2. Give yourself, your collegues and students ‘permission to move’ in their everyday, and promote flexibility in how they position themselves while they work or learn is key. 3. Be kind to yourself in your ‘self-talk’ and just start where you’re at, even if that’s a long way from where you want to end up. – Set small, realistic goals for yourself- with little rewards- to really help to spur yourself on as you aim to move more. Dale and Kym share some fun ideas about ‘sneaking fitness’ into your day to day life! – Put away your devices and other distractions away and take a walk, or whatever activity suits you best, each day Dale & Kym discuss lots of quick and easy ways to inject fun and movement into your day, whether it’s with your work team, your family or just for your own sanity, so join us in Episode #13 of the ‘Be Fit 2 Sit’ Podcast.

#227: Dr Craig Daly & Dale Sidebottom | JAG Bag Launch

Energetic Radio

Today is an exhilarating day as it marks three years since Dr Craig Daly and I started talking about putting together a challenge to help children and adults worldwide. This is completely free for everyone and labour of love to improve the globes happiness and mental health. Below you can read out what's involved in the free packs and click on the link at the end of the show notes to gain access to the JAG BAG Packs from Jugar Life. With approximately half of all mental disorders commencing before the age of 14, school settings play a crucial role in ensuring that mental health and well-being are constant focus points during a student’s formative years. Research over the past 20 years has suggested that comprehensive initiatives embracing a 'whole of school' approach (involving school leaders, teachers, staff, and parents) have fostered a climate where better transitions from childhood to adulthood occur. However, overall, student mental health appears to be on the decline, with an estimated one in every five adolescents suffering from a significant mental health disorder. Of additional concern is that, sadly, most instances go undetected and untreated. Early research outputs since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic estimate incidences of adolescent anxiety, depression, and stress have risen significantly. Students worldwide struggle to deal with the loneliness, social isolation, and negativity brought on by continued uncertainty. At JUGAR|LIFE, we want to do our part to remedy that. JAG, as an acronym, stands for joy, affection, and gratitude. These elements exist as core components of social and emotional wellbeing. We challenged ourselves to design an initiative that prioritised these components irrespective of school setting; an initiative that was comprehensive in nature, flexible in delivery, and aligned with specific learning objectives drawn from global social and emotional wellness curricula. We made it our mission to make it available free of charge to all. The JAG Bag is the result. Click on this link to check out the JAG BAG and start enjoying today for FREE - https://www.jugar.life/jugar-life-jag-bag/
