The vast majority of tasks that a learner faces will be multi-layered. This means that there’s not always a simple solution to the problem they encounter.

Within metacognition, you can reflect on things that have worked in the past and apply learned logic to try and solve the problem they’re currently faced with.

If a learner has metacognitive capabilities, they can control what they think about a particular situation and develop an appropriate action that ensures they’re not overstimulated.

This always results in higher performance, as the learner has not taken on more they can manage and will be capable of delivering the task’s requirements.

Unless and until you have superhuman powers, it is a herculean task to know what exactly the other person is thinking. And generally, we human beings have accepted that very fact.

The Functions of Core Muscles
  1. The core determines a large part of a person’s posture.
  2. The core muscles align the spine, rib cage, and pelvis of a person to resist a specific force, whether static or dynamic.
  3. Core exercises train the muscles in the pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work in harmony.
  4. This leads to better balance and stability, whether performing recreational or daily activities.
  5. Functional Movements are highly dependent on this part of the body, and lack of core muscular development can result in a predisposition to injury.
