Prep Podcast Club highlights mindfulness in latest edition
December 2, 2020

Rydal Penrhos Prep School’s Podcast Club highlighted an important message during their latest release.

The Rydal Penrhos Prep School Podcast Club is led by teacher Catherine Culver, and the group has been busy over the first few weeks of the academic year learning about the tricks of the trade and how to put together an impactful podcast that stands out from the crowd.

Their latest edition focused on the topic of Mindfulness, with Emily Nurse, Robyn Borg-Barthet and Harper Burke opening the broadcast by explaining what it means and the best practices to release stress.

“Be good to yourself, for true mental health.”

This was the quote used by the club to further enhance their message during the podcast, before Steffan Atenstaedt urged all listeners to take a few minutes out of their day to do nothing and forget about the stresses of day-to-day life, which the pupil sated bears more significance now due to the ongoing concerns surrounding COVID-19.

“Mindfulness can be achieved in many ways.”

The group then gave some helpful advice on how to improve mindfulness, including looking after a pet, meditating regularly, staying calm, focusing on nature and being yourself, before finishing off this segment with a phrase based on the YouTube workout sensation, Joe Wicks.

“Follow Joe Wicks’ example, and BE MINDFUL!”

The podcast concluded with a rallying cry to houses regarding the current ‘I’m a Pupil’ challenges currently taking place at the Prep School, which is based on the hit TV show ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’ that is taking place at nearby Gwrych Castle.
