A closer look at what they will be learning and how it will be beneficial to students and the classroom environment:
☀Growth mindset is the belief that our abilities are always changing (not fixed) and that we are able to improve with hard work and practice. Research by Carol Dweck has shown that students with this mindset are more successful in school because they bounce back from failure and do not get stuck in a negative thinking pattern of self defeat. Daily reminders of growth mindset can have life changing results.
☀Self-reflection is the ability to be real with yourself about your current strengths and weaknesses. When you can take an honest look at your effort without getting too emotional about it, you can make positive changes. Those changes help you become stronger and better in all areas of life. Let go of pride and make changes when necessary.
☀Mindfulness is the ability to live in the moment without judgement. It’s the ability to have your mind and body in the same place. (not overthinking, thinking ahead or dwelling on problems) For such a simple concept, it has profound benefits. The American Psychological Association claims that practicing mindfulness increases working memory, concentration, happiness, and overall physical & mental health.
☀Wellness is a general term used to describe your overall well-being in regards to your mental health, physical health, and social development. You control your wellness by the choices you make, the food you eat, the amount of stress you are willing to endure, and your attitude about life.
☀Kindness is the act of being friendly and considerate of others. It can also mean showing compassion and doing good deeds for others. It has been scientifically proven that we become happier when we help others.
☀Gratitude is the feeling of being thankful for the things in your life. According to Psychology Today, it has numerous benefits. Gratitude improves mood, self-esteem, empathy, resiliency, and sleep patterns. It has also been shown to reduce stress and aggression.
By getting a small dose of each of these concepts every day, your students will begin to learn how to self-regulate their emotions, become more resilient, have a more positive outlook on life and cope with life in a healthy way.
