In Episode 55 of The PE Umbrella Podcast, I delve right into the second step from 'Five Steps to a Winning Mindset', as highlighted by Professor Damian Hughes This episode is all about 'Thinking'. Did you know that in any given day our brains make up to 10,000 trivial decisions? Exhausting work! As I began thinking about thinking I devised a series of key questions to build this episode around and uncovered more along the way. - As teachers, do we think enough? - Are you guilty of over thinking? - As teachers, do we challenge our students to think enough? Is it important? It was immensely enjoyable recording this episode as I was able to pick apart scenarios from my own teaching practice and verbalise inner feelings that others may, or may not be able to relate to. For one, I know I am still paving my own path towards clarity in my teaching and working on living in the moment when I am teaching. As John Wooden said himself: "Don't let yesterday take up too much of today" Please do get in touch and share your own experiences and thoughts on this topic, I'd love to know your opinions. So what are you waiting for? Jump out of the rain and join me 'Under the Umbrella' for some Physed chat!
