Girl Shaped Flames’ First Workshop


On November 3rd, an eager bunch of girls participated in GSF’s first workshop: Stress, Your Mind & Your Muscles hosted by Science of Fitness. Decked out in their fitness gear ready to dive in, the girls were introduced to workshop host, Rory, who took them by surprise with his fast facts about why the brain is the most important factor in exercise, and how it can be utilised to reduce levels of stress and anxiety.

Over the next hour and half Rory then presented physical challenges to the group – equal parts mind and body – during which he asked the girls to step outside their comfort zones, partner up, put theory to practice, and only focus on the task at hand.

After a number of these fun challenges it was agreed: the girls could already feel their stress levels had reduced, their energy had increased and the pressure of exams was no longer on their minds.

The skills behind these workshops may seem simple to those of us to have been in the workforce for a period of time but it is important to remember that the earlier they’re learned, the earlier they can be useful, and help our teenage girls tackle their goals head on.

This post is going to look back at the year that was 2019.

Girl Now: Live From New York

This month I am posting live from New York City. Crazy, I know. I recently graduated high school and this is my version of ‘schoolies’. However, before graduating, I went through one of the craziest, happiest, saddest and most unbelievable couple of weeks ever. Throughout the week I had a teacher tell me that although it is sad that I should live every moment and make the most of the time I had. Pretty much, they told me that I had to live in the present.
