Make Happiness Part of your School
WHY WE NEED TO TEACH KIDS TO BE HAPPY
Kids need to learn to recognise and manage their negative and positive emotions. They learn the value of accepting themselves as they are and appreciating others. They are taught to calm themselves by deep breathing and other techniques, and discover that three 20-minute bouts of exercise a week have the same effect on raising the spirit and avoiding depression.
In Australia today, we have exam instruction, rather than the education of the whole person. This is as unnecessary as it is unkind. We need educational environments that develop all the intelligences of every student. Happiness Co Pillars and workshops for teacher, and the virtual classrooms for students will prove to be a vital addition to any school's offerings for the well being of its whole school community.
Relating to others is fundamental because nothing is a greater source of joy, nor of anguish, than human relationships. Students learn how to foster friendships that nourish them and avoid those which are destructive. Good relationships are crucial not only in families but also in the workplace.
We cover a few Happiness pillar topics, including:
1. What does it mean to be Happy?
2. Relationships and Connection
3. Anxiety to Happy
4. How to be a better friend
5. Happiness and Bullying
6. Resilience and Empowerment
