Something I (everybody???) could do with more of. Although a fast speaker, Shawn Achor is articulate and funny to listen to, and makes clear points on the benefits to being Positive….for ourselves and those we are privileged to teach.
Here are six simple suggestions from Achor that will help your students retrain their brains to view the world in a more positive light, and learn more faster:
*Spend two minutes a day to write down three new things you are grateful for – for 21 days in a row.
*Journal about one positive experience you’ve had every 24 hours.
*Meditate to allow your brain to focus on one thing at a time.
*Perform random acts of kindness.
*Write one positive email to someone you know every time you open up your inbox.
Simple. But can make a world of difference for yourself, and those around you.
