If you like podcasts and are a busy bee most of the time, I’ve got a great suggestion for you! You are Not a Frog with Dr Rachel Morris is a podcast catered towards high-stress workers who often feel like a frog in boiling water. It covers a variety of content that everyone can recognise and use to improve the way you work and live your life and is brought to you by Dr Rachel Morris. Rachel is a GP, executive coach and specialist in resilience at work. She works with doctors and other organisations all over the country to help professionals beat stress and take back control of their work.
If you’re interested in the link between physical activity and cognitive performance or how to find the most valuable exercise routines (backed by science), then Rachel’s 57th podcast is the perfect pick for you.
In episode 57 I joined Rachel as her guest to discuss how staying active improves brain function in all aspects of life. The impact of covid restrictions has undoubtedly affected this but it was a growing issue in children for many years prior. Which is why it’s so vital to bring excitement and joy back into school life and exercise.
Here are just a few points we covered:
- Ways to help children enjoy exercise, rather than seeing it as a chore
- Active exercise and its effect on productivity
- Exercise and creativity
- Why we’ve lost the ability to see the importance of physical activity
- Advice for people who work long hours
Rachel was a GP for almost two decades and is always “on it” with the facts. I’m expecting this episode to be particularly relevant for teachers, parents and anyone with a busy schedule. It talks to everyone who cares about the development of young people and the challenges we are all facing in our constantly changing society.
You can check this podcast out on Rachel’s website or on any podcast streaming platform such as Spotify, Anchor FM, Google podcasts, pocket cast and many more.
