Mixed Mental Attitude
Mixed Mental Attitude involves a mix of group discussion, body weight exercises, focus mitt and non-contact boxing drills, as well as mindfulness and meditation.
Young people will improve their self-awareness, particularly in relation to how they understand their own triggers, patterns of escalation and how to recognise when they are becoming angry and how to deescalate.
It's no secret that exercise benefits young people positively impacting their moods and how they feel physically. Our sessions help to relieve symptoms of anxiety and depression by focusing the mind and body in the present moment, while instilling a sense of achievement, building confidence and self-esteem. These physiological benefits are complemented by the expertise Matt brings to the sessions as a youth worker with over a decades experience working with at-risk young people.
