Psychological research has found that mentoring is associated with a wide range of favourable behavioural, attitudinal, health-related, relational, motivational, and career outcomes. This is particularly the case with academic and workplace mentoring.
Academic mentoring is where a more experienced faculty member imparts knowledge, provides support, and offers guidance to a student protégé. This provides both a knowledge and skills transfer, as well as personal growth opportunities. I was lucky enough to have 2 fantastic mentors in my psychology training who were generous and provided a wealth of knowledge and feedback which I found very helpful.
Workplace mentoring occurs in an organisational setting and the purpose is the personal and professional growth of the mentoree. The mentor is usually a supervisor or senior person with extensive experience. When I was in my mid 20's, I had an amazing older manager who voluntarily mentored me - he took me under his wing and taught me business skills that helped me enormously. He made a huge difference to my confidence and skills and I am forever grateful for his generosity.
Being mentored has many benefits, but mentoring others is also personally rewarding. It is usually a reciprocal relationship, where both parties learn and grow. It is a sharing of wisdom between generations that allows a less experienced person to develop skills. Whether on the sport field, in the classroom or at work, you may wish to consider a mentoring arrangement for the benefit of both parties.

“Only the mind is capable of illumination. Spirit is already illuminated and the body is too dense. The mind, however, can bring its illumination to the body by recognizing that it is not the learner, and is therefore unamenable to learning. The body is, however, easily brought into alignment with a mind that has learned to look beyond it toward the light.” A Course in Miracles

Listen up! This is important. Loving yourself and your body can mean that don't want to make a single change to your physicality. For many years, I lived like this as well!! I embraced, and I still embrace, every lump and bump and piece of who I am! But get this... loving your body can also mean wanting to change it. I know, the body-accecptance community will disagree, and that's ok. You CAN accecpt your body and still want to change the state you are in. I desire to be physically stronger, I desire to have more physical freedom. I desire to have a body that can DO more. Guess what? This body is older. It has more limits than it did when it was younger. This is normal and totally ok! And, YES, its OK to say "My body would feel better if it existed in a different state." That is NOT betraying anyone or yourself. Now.. saying, "I'm going to he happy when I lose 50 lbs" is utter bull. But, understanding that your body physically doesn't feel well is NOT a betrayal of self. It feels VERY different for me at 40 and weighing 280 than it did when I was 25 and 280. This is not a betrayal of self-love, this is aging and its nature. So here is my request for us all:
If your body feels great as it is OR you simply want to stay as you are... don't judge those who DO want to make a change.
If you DO want to make a change... don't judge those who DON'T. Its really thay simple.
Body-love means YOU have the autonomy to decide how you want to exist in your body. Your self-love. Your way. Your body. ❤👍😘
