In our inaugural episode of the Encounters in EdTech Podcast on Fireside, we were joined by Mindfulness Coach Pamela J Alexander and Educator and Yoga Instructor Lori Yearwood as we discussed Wellness in Online Learning and Online Work, and Healthy Screenbreaks.
This is a topic that I am passionate about, as with having been met with a concussion while both working and studying online, it amplified the need for me to be conscious and aware of how I work and learn online, and what makes for positive experiences for me, as well as what is unhealthy for me.
Having been met with their own struggles, Pamela and Lori have taken what they have learned from building health and wellness breaks into their online learning and online work days, to build new careers around teaching others techniques in mindfulness, relaxation, and reducing anxieties. They share a little of that in this podcast.
You can find more of Pamela’s mindfulness teachings at pamelajalexander.com and teases to Lori’s healthy living, relaxation techniques, and anxiety busters on her instagram at @phoenixmoments and in this post about On the Go Mindfulness Activities on Roamancing. Lori is also one of the founders of StoryToGo, and the driving force behind the StoryToGo Classroom Health and Wellness Studio.
