Surprising Moves Change Your Life
3 Things Work like Magic
If you haven’t stopped moving, it’s what you do. No need to think you need to get back into shape. You already walk to your car, up and down stairs, to and from your desk, and take for granted the maneuvers, at the right second, around anything in your path. Loads of research tells us the most sustainable way to keep lifelong wellness is to embed it. What if you make small changes that result in significant gains in only a few weeks, even days. Knowing the 3 types that improve life, fuel learning, and even allow the brain to wire new neurons. It is like magic. Poor attention, damage from injury, bad moods, anxiety, trouble in school could vanish with some exercise, fun play, or balance activities and obstacle courses.
In response to the constant complaint by teachers “my students won’t sit still or pay attention,” Kim Bevill began researching the role of moving in the classroom. Years later we now have hundreds of peer reviewed studies that show it is now possible to boost learning for those who need it most, delay cognitive aging for the mortal human, and counter feelings of anxiety and depression as well as prescription drugs…even outperform them.
For this independent study, you will be asked to complete the reading that you have chosen (a copy of the reading will be provided with purchase), then answer a series of questions about: the content, how you’ve applied the reading, and the related outcomes you have observed in your respective field. Engagement hours must reach 15 hours or more.
University Credit is an additional fee outside of the cost of class.
Step 1: Getting Started
Pick the class that’s right for you. Each class comes with step-by-step directions including: 1) How to watch or attend class, 2) Completing all course requirements, 3) Registering with the University of your choice, and 4) Requesting transcripts.
Step 2: Completing Class
Watch the online lectures or attend class in-person, then begin independent application. Keep a reflection and log the hours spent applying this content, then submit to us by email. 3-credit classes require 45 hours of engagement, 1 credit classes require 15 hours of engagement (including class time).
Step 3: Receiving Credit
After submitting independent application, within 5-7 days, you will receive a confirmation email that your grade has been entered with the university of your choice. You will then be able to request transcripts. Transcript delivery is generally 5-7 days and is available for expidite.
I always leave Kim’s classes feeling excited and ready to put theory into practice, and this book followed that same idea. She breaks down concepts about how the brain works and what it needs so that classroom teachers (actually, everybody) can immediately implement the strategies. She makes learning about the brain and neuroscience fun and applicable.” Stacey J Budaj
