This module goes well beyond “mental toughness” and into the flexible, adaptable, and universal qualities that tomorrow’s leaders need to thrive.
Week four: beyond sleep. learning to amplify energy.
Students will not only learn to improve sleep for mental and physical fitness-they will learn to improve energy through a number of science based practices including non-sleep deep rest and other powerful methods to recharge the body and brain.
week five: Social Media street smarts
Students will learn how to use technology and not be used by it. This module will cover mentally healthy social media strategies, understanding new technologies such as cryptocurrency and blockchain, and how to leverage the digital world to make a difference.
week six: question everything
Students will learn how language impacts the brain and body while gaining 21st century communication skills.
The camp will end with a presentation by Physiology First Ambassador Chris Novoa on the value of critical thinking in a presentation entitled Question Everything.
