Just Get Active
Just Get Active is a content provider for the Primary Cognercise Program, which combines mindful cognitive training with physical exercise to bolster ‘whole person’ performance health and wellbeing. It provides ready access via computer, tablet or phone to an expanding library of professionally produced content that is both age-specific and relevant.
The Cognercise team realises that the efficient use of the body and mind, as life-long ‘value-adding tools’ requires he knowledge and use of correct methods of practice. The repeated attempts to master Cognercise theories (i.e. strength, aerobic, flexibility, mindfulness) builds qualities, which both enhance positive life experiences and reduce the severity of negative ones. Cognercise Primary Health provides a non-competitive opportunity for children to learn, understand, and apply the necessary skills required for a long, productive, and positive life.
All Just Get Active content is proudly based on the Cognercise Philosophy and Methodologies under license from Mind Body Industries.
Straight away it engages students and helps some students to wake up in the morning!
It also helps other students who are very energetic to settle and focus on the day ahead.
My favourite part is the meditation and flexibility because we get to relax our minds
and focus on our breathing and I like the different stretches.
