Building a Positive Mindset
 
We have become accustomed to being hard on ourselves; from the things we do to how our body looks, negativity has become a habit. But we would never speak to our closest friends in such damaging ways so why should we talk to ourselves that way? Students will explore how toxic thoughts and beliefs are damaging to us (and our daily lives) including ways they can drain our emotional energy, personal power, and dignity. We will discuss how to recognize toxic thoughts and practice building a more positive mindset.
