Early in my life health education was about learning to eat properly, getting exercise, staying away from drugs and other “stuff.”
Today, thanks to people like my guest Amy Lauren Smith, we are seeing a more comprehensive and expanded approach to health. Mindfulness, balancing technology, sleep and social emotional learning are becoming a greater part of health education.
Amy and I get into all those topics and more.
Amy is a Health & Wellness teacher at the Hong Kong International School as well as a consultant and education editor for Choices, Scholastic’s health & life-skills magazine for teens.
