This quote comes from a New York Times article headlined A Richer Life by Seeing the Glass Half Full.
In it, the author also reports on a recommendation to help develop this kind of optimism, which I try to do with my students:
Both Dr. Segerstrom and the Mayo researchers recommend taking a few minutes at the end of each day to write down three positive things that happened that day, ending the day on an upbeat note.
And here’s a good reminder about why I shouldn’t be preoccupied when walking around our campus, and why I should always remember to smile at students — whether I know them or not: Why you should smile at strangers is from MSNBC, and reports on a new study.
I’m adding this info to My Best Posts On Why It’s Important To Be Positive In Class.
