Executive Functioning Strategies for Kids

Welcome to Episode 32: Executive Function Strategies for Kids.Join us for a overview of executive skills and how we can support these skills in children and teens.It's important to note that the development of a brain’s executive skills depends upon your age, your genetics and your experiences - and these are skills we can teach and learn. Think about it: Is procrastinating over homework and projects a constant never ending battle? Is it concerning that your child can focus for hours and hours on a video game but can’t sit still for five homework problems? Do you find your child (or you!) can’t seem to keep track of what you need to do or often lose items? Are your child's binder, backpack, and possibly his bedroom, the entry points to the black holes of the universe? Do you have to remind your child over and over and over and over again to do things? Kids aren't just lazy or lack common sense; we now have the tools to be able to support them in developing the 11 executive skills which include: Cognitive skills - Working Memory, Planning Prioritization, Organization, Time Management, Metacognition Behavioral Skills - Response Inhibition, Emotional Control, Flexibility, Sustained Attention, Task Initiation, Goal-Directed Persistence

Your Courageous Bucket List

We’re discussing life goal lists this week! I believe that by pushing the envelope on life, taking risks, articulating your deepest desires, and really living with joy and passion, you will not only become happier, but you will die without regrets. Do you have a bucket list? I’ve put off writing a life list but after reading the research around happiness, I finally created mine and I want to invite you to join me. Research on life satisfaction shows that happiness requires having clear-cut goals in life that give us a sense of purpose and direction.And as we discuss in this episode, you can foster and honethe 4 qualities in your own life of happiness: optimism self-confidence extroversion self-efficacy Here’s to living with intention and pursuing your life goals with courage. I hope you'll share you list of 100 things to do before you die with me (a bit of homework for this week!).

Emotional Regulation for Back to School

Join us as we chat about how to use coaching with your own kids to help them with emotional regulation. Because we have a lot of transitions coming up with the new school year and its new schedules, new teachers, newroutines. As I see it, emotional regulation is the ability to understand feelings and manage them. This is important for lifelong health and wellness. So how do we do this? Well, it's a lifetime of work, But we are all doing learning. As a family. Together. We are all working on ourselves and learning how to communicate our feelings, our needs and who we are. Emotional Regulations includes: 1. Noticing your child's emotions and helping them understand their own brain states 2. Helping them learn to label their emotions and feel their emotions (but not act on them) 3. Teaching them about connection and conflict resolution through connection The most important piece to this work is connection. Your homework this week (and month) is to spend 5-10 minutes with each child. One on one time. Connection will help you weather any storm and is the game changer for families. Please trust me.

Emotional Regulation for Back to School

Taking Care of Your Health

I’m so thrilled to speak to you about something that has dramatically altered the course of my disease. Food. Yes, it’s that simple - but it’s really difficult too. We know that food, sleep, exercise, stress levels (all the things, really) contribute to to health issues like auto-immune problems, obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, mental health issues, and cancer. At the heart of this conversation, I believe diet and lifestyle plays a critical role in our health. So I hope you'll join me as I discuss what I've done to change my life and disease. I'd also love to hear your thoughts about what you've done to embrace healthy eating. You can email me at hello@jessicastong.com. Here's to taking care of your health!!

What can coaching do for you?

Coaching helps you live with courage - and become who you are meant to be. Coaching helps you reflect and gain awareness of who you are, what is important to you, your strengths, challenges, options open to you and what action to take in order to make the changes you want in your work or life. I use a four step process in coaching clients: Evaluate the current situation Build the right mindset Create a plan for wellness that includes setting effective goals, visualizing yourself achieving those goals, creating the right environment with the appropriate supports in place, and monitoring progress Celebrate the work. What would you do if you had the tools and resources in place to go after your dreams? For homework this week, I want you to take some reflection on your life.Who are you today? Think about your work, your relationships, your money, your accomplishments, your interests, your strengths, your habits. Are you to make a change in your life? Are you ready to create a plan of action to move yourself forward? Book a free 30 minute coaching session with me today!
