The Science of Happiness

What determines our happiness? A common misconception is that happiness is largely dependent on our situation or external factors. However, a relatively new field of psychology called Positive Psychology is shedding light on how we can take control of our individual happiness. According to researchers, 50% of happiness is determined by our genetics. 10% is determined by our situation. However, the remaining 40% is completely controlled by the individual. Clinical studies have identified specific intentional activities that we can integrate into our lives that will increase our overall happiness and wellbeing.

Mindfulness

Research has shown that 10 minutes per day of mindfulness can increase children’s executive functioning, emotional regulation, self calming and social skills. Since the teacher is the pulse of the classroom, it is important that the teacher has the ability to connect their mind and body. With consistent personal practice by teachers and a dedicated portion of time in the classroom, a teacher can have a dramatic positive effect on the learning environment.

Character Strengths

Dr. Martin Seligman's research demonstrates that effective character education can lead to higher levels of student well-being. Identifying students’ character strengths and focusing on their strengths rather than their deficiencies provides another pathway to creating flourishing classrooms. Teachers will learn how to use Dr. Seligman´s VIA Character Strengths to create a strengths-based classroom.

Mindset

This module is based on Carol Dweck’s research on Fixed vs Growth Mindset. The teacher will learn how to adopt a growth mindset for themselves and then how to alter their language in the classroom to cultivate a growth mindset in students. In the process of shifting from a fixed to a growth mindset, teachers and students may bump into deceptive brain messages such as, “I am not good at math.” These fixed mindset messages can be changed due to the neuroplasticity of the brain. By simply adding the word “yet” to the end of a fixed mindset message, one can change the mental outlook and allow for a more positive outcome. The growth mindset message is, “I am not good at math….yet.”

EMOTIONAL AND SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE

Emotional self awareness and the ability to identify the emotions of others is a skill that can be developed. The more awareness you have of your own emotional state, the more equipped you will be to healthfully express those emotions. While we tend to desire positive emotions and avoid negative emotions, it is important to know that negative emotions are a natural part of being human and should not be avoided. In fact, they should be fully embraced as they arise. If they are allowed to be fully felt, the quicker one can get back to feeling authentic positive emotions.
