Learning opportunity 5: Positive psychology Overall learning outcome 23. I can look to long-term not short-term benefits and can delay gratification (for example, working hard for a test or examination now to get a good job or into further/higher education later). Year 8 learning outcomes I can plan to develop areas of learning that I find difficult. I can identify obstacles (lack of motivation) that might stop me reaching my goal. I can identify what to change in terms of my learning or behaviour in order to meet a long-term goal.

You will need: : 

You will need: I am grateful for:

Positive psychology : 

Positive psychology Keep a gratitude journal. These can be big things (like ‘I’m grateful for my family’) and small things (like ‘I’m grateful for that nice meal I had today.’) ‘When we focus on the positive, we stop taking our lives for granted, and we become happier.’ Sweat it out. Working out can do wonders for the way you feel. In fact, a recent study at Duke University showed working out for 30 minutes three times a week is equivalent to popping Zoloft (this is a drug that can be used to help people who are depressed or anxious).

Positive psychology : 

Positive psychology Other strategies we might consider are: Socialise. When we are with people we like it often lifts our spirits, especially if we ‘have a laugh’ or do something together. The power of music and song. Music is a great way to change the way we feel, but we need to choose wisely what we listen to. When we feel down we often choose music that fits the way we feel and that makes us feel even ‘lower’.
