Seedlings Wellbeing x OC Tuition

Categorised in: OC News | Posted on: 15 September 2020

It’s been a tough few months.

But at last, the time has come for your young person to emerge from their temporary period of forced hibernation into the world of socially distanced learning at school.

Experience of the lockdown period will vary for children. For some, it’s been a wonderful opportunity to hit the brakes and reset. But for others, it’s been a period of fear and uncertainty, fraught with feelings of stress and worry.

An independent report from Young Minds – which surveyed 2036 young people with a history of mental health needs – found that 80% reported that the pandemic had made their mental health worse (41% saying it had made their mental health “much worse”). This was due to increased feelings of anxiety, isolation, a loss of coping mechanisms or a loss of motivation.

For these students, and countless others like them, the thought of going back to school has been a very scary prospect.

What can we do to help our young people who are struggling with going back to school?

Julia Karnacz, founder of Seedlings Wellbeing, who I interviewed in 2019 may have the answer for you.

Seedlings Wellbeing combines Yoga, Mindfulness and Growth Mindset principles to create unique classes to develop a young person’s confidence, resilience and self-esteem. 

Over the past few months Julia has appeared on Sky News discussing the benefits of yoga and mindfulness for young people, and has worked with Vodafone and O2. Coming up towards the end of the year, Seedlings Wellbeing are launching new and easily accessible online support (watch this space!).
