WHAt is grit?
Grit is a Vancouver-based company dedicated to promoting optimum mental health for all humans through classes, workshops and retreats.
Let’s raise a generation of kids who are mentally happy and healthy,
who know it’s okay to be strong and soft at the same time,
who know how to deal with adversity, and who are totally in-tune
with their unique awesome-ness.
And while we're doing that, let's look at our own mental health and find tools to support ourselves in this sometimes over-whelming and chaotic journey.
The amount of teens with mental health issues has sky-rocketed.
Why? What happened?
Why is this generation of kids so susceptible to mental health issues?
Is it the fact that this is the first generation to be completely immersed in technology? Are they too distracted by content to be in touch with who they are and what they need? What if we can help them prevent anxiety and further mental health issues that stem from that?
And so we began Grit: Brain Health + Soul-Resilience
Our goal is to give people the tools they need at a young age to keep their brains happy and healthy through the tricky times.
We aim to explore how to listen to and trust our heart by quieting our minds.
And we talk.
We cover topics like:
“what stresses you out…and what can you do about that stress?”
“what is a toxic friendship?”
“what is mindfulness and how can you use it everyday to train your brain?”
“how can 5 minutes of 'brain train' seriously impact your life?”
We also make wicked crafts as a means of getting our mind off the stories constantly playing out in our heads.
Plus it’s just a ton of fun to hang out with people in a safe, open, creative environment every week!
Let’s give our kids the tools they need to take on the world.
