Expressing gratitude

Viewing the world and relationships through a lens of gratitude can help students to notice and appreciate the positives in life, even when facing a challenge. Noticing and sharing gratitude can support healthy relationships and the development of resilience.



Students can learn to recognize the role of perseverance on the path to success through practices that reinforce its value and remind them that working through challenges can have many rewards.


Practising optimism

When students are optimistic in their interactions with others and in their world view, they are more likely to experience positive relationships and have the motivation to persevere and succeed.



Reframing helps students see different explanations and perspectives for situations. Developing the skill can help students respond in more positive ways to difficult situations or circumstances over which they have less control.
