#45: 3 essential elements of teen health

Health is one of those things that many teenagers take for granted. We tend not to fully appreciate it while we’ve got it. But as soon as you’re unwell, you realise that health is a vital element of your life. In case you’re not convinced that teen health is something we need to talk more about, here are some statistics we’ve found from the research we’ve conducted in high schools this year... Less than 3% of young people who completed our surveys are consuming the recommended daily portions of fruits and vegetables. Less than 20% of students are hydrating enough, and around the same number are getting sufficient sleep. Shocking statistics like this will inevitably lead to problems. Is it any wonder that we’re seeing rapidly increasing rates of preventable illnesses and diseases in teenagers? If you have poor lifestyle habits and regularly fail to give yourself what you need to be healthy, it’s just a matter of time before something bad happens. Thankfully, there are lots of ...

#42: Live your passion (Interview with Adventurer and Mischief Maker Anna McNuff)

This episode of The Unstoppable Teen Podcast is all about how to live your passion – or how to find it, if you haven’t discovered it yet. All too often, I hear young people say “I’m bored.” As you’ll hear me explain, this boredom can lead to all kinds of negative behaviours such as disengagement in school, bullying, and even crime. If you’re familiar with that feeling of boredom and lack of motivation, be sure to listen in, because our guest today can help you overcome those feelings and get more excitement into your life. Ready to hear all about our special guest? She’s none other than the brilliant Anna McNuff, who has been voted one of the 50 Most Influential Travellers in the world and one of the top modern female adventurers of our time. During Anna’s adventures (which involve bikes and running shoes more than planes or trains), she raises money for charity and gives talks to schools. Her enthusiasm, sense of humour and sheer love for life are infectious – I’m confid...

#41: What to do in the last 24 hours before important tests and exams

I’ve been on tour recently, helping students all over the country prepare for their final high school tests and exams. After an event in the northwest of England, a student asked for some extra help: “Kev, nobody’s ever told me what to do the day before an exam. Have you got any tips that will help me perform at my best?” I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: many schools are failing to show students how to perform at their best under pressure. They seem to think it’s sufficient to teach the curriculum and say a few encouraging words. But that’s not good enough. So as we head into exam season, I want to change that by offering some extra help. It turns out that top achievers in sport, entertainment and business have certain routines they do before important performances that enable them to perform at their best. The same routines can be used by students to succeed in school. In this episode of The Unstoppable Teen Podcast, you’ll hear tips on what to do (and what and t...

#40: Developing teens’ financial literacy (Interview with best-selling author Sharon Lechter)

I’m excited about today’s episode for two reasons! Firstly, because this is the first time we’ve ever done a session on financial literacy. Secondly, because of the calibre of our guest! Sharon Lechter is the go-to person if you want your financial future to be better than your financial past. I first came across her in my late teens or early 20s, when I read the world-renowned Rich Dad Poor Dad (which she co-authored). I recently met her at an event in London, and I’m delighted she agreed to share her wealth insights on The Unstoppable Teen Podcast. Sharon left school and became an accountant, then set up a publishing business. Next, she started writing and co-writing books, and eventually became CEO of the Rich Dad Poor Dad organization. More recently, she has focused on empowering young people to take control of their money. She currently serves on the National Board of Directors at Childhelp in the United States. In this episode, Sharon shares some valuable skills for master...

#39: How to study better

Right now, in the UK, USA, Canada, and other countries around the world, students right are studying for major tests and exams. While the exact tests may vary from place to place, the pressure for students to succeed is commonplace. Here’s a big problem with that: many young people feel that they don’t know how to prepare effectively for a test or exam. If you aren’t confident in your study skills, you’re not alone. Unfortunately, schools tend to focus on what to learn rather than giving students necessary insights into how to learn effectively. As I’m recording this, I’m getting ready work with students at the University of Warwick tomorrow. I’ll be sharing proven study strategies with students who are still in high school but have ambitions of going to university. In this episode of The Unstoppable Teen Podcast, I’m excited to share with you an easy-to-use technique that enabled me to dramatically improve my grades in eight subjects in my last six months of high school.

#38: STEM, learning languages and innovating (Interview with MIT director Dr Luis Perez-Breva)

Do you like science, technology, engineering or Mathematics? Would you like to get better at learning languages? Do you want to know why schools are putting more emphasis on these subjects? Are you considering a future career or even starting your own business in one of these areas? If so, you’re going to love this episode of The Unstoppable Teen Podcast because it’s packed with great advice from a world leader in these fields. Here’s something you may not know about me; I left school at 16 years of age and never went to university. My guest in this episode, Dr Luis Perez-Breva, took the opposite path; he has an impressive four degrees (that’s not a typing error!) and now teaches at the world-renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In addition to his impressive education, Luis is a successful entrepreneur, he speaks multiple languages, and he’s an expert in innovation (he even wrote a book on the subject!). Luis consults and collaborates in countries around the wo...

#37: 3 steps to achieve better grades

Right now, high school students around the world are preparing for their final tests and exams, and that pressure is weighing heavily on many young minds. Last week, I visited my old school to share success strategies with students. Afterward, I had a conversation with a student called Charlotte (not her real name!). In just about every way, Charlotte is a good student: she has good attendance, takes good notes in class, asks lots of questions, studies hard, and has positive relationships with her teachers. Even so, Charlotte is incredibly nervous about the tests and exams she’s about to complete. She’s anxious and worries about what will happen if she doesn’t get the results she wants. I gave her various tips and ideas on how to perform at her best under pressure, but since other young people across the country (and world) are facing the same challenges, I’ve decided to share some of these ideas with you in this episode of The Unstoppable Teen Podcast. I’ve funnelled much of m...

#36: Transforming teen struggles into super success (Interview with England goalkeeper Tom Heaton)

I’m thrilled to bring you a brilliant guest in this episode of The Unstoppable Teen Podcast. If you follow sports, you probably already know of Tom Heaton, the Premier League goalkeeper and captain of the Burnley Football Club who also plays for the England national team. I first met Tom during his teenage years, and I still remember feeling struck by his personal presence, professional standards, and phenomenal manners. He’s managed to maintain all of those qualities across the years despite some pretty dramatic setbacks and personal success, which he talks about during this conversation. It’s rare to have such an open and forthright conversation with a superstar, and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did! Even more importantly, though, I hope you’ll learn from the conversation. Tom has some amazing insight into what it takes to live your dreams, and the kind of attitude you need to overcome the inevitable challenges you’ll encounter along the way. His words of wisdom aren...
