Discussed in this episode

Executive functioning refers to the part of your brain that organises, prioritises and regulates emotions. However, I prefer to refer to it as the ‘Air Traffic Control,’ as just like air traffic control has to manage thousands of planes on countless runways with perfect timing, students have to manage information and distractions.

Fortunately, we can improve executive functioning skills through a range of strategies, below are some examples.

  1. Emotional Control
  2. Impulse Control
  3. Planning and Prioritising
  4. Organising
  5. Task Initiation
  6. Flexibility
  7. Working Memory
