It incorporates mindfulness, effective communication techniques, and unconditional positive regard in order to create a collaborative, caring learning community that enhances personal well-being, increases motivation, encourages creativity, problem-solving, and analytical thinking while utilizing strategies that set students (and teachers) up success in the classroom and beyond.BREATHE contains fun, experiential activities for the classroom as well guided mindful meditations for stress management and self-compassion.
Positive Attitude Handbook is designed with easy steps that incorporate breathing, gratitude, and kindness to guide us down the path toward a better attitude.
