PowerPoint Presentation:

“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit .” ~ Albert Schweitzer

PowerPoint Presentation:

A ccording to the Nobel Prize-winning scientist Daniel Kahneman , each day we experience approximately 20,000 moments . A moment is a few seconds in which our brain records an experience. The quality of our days are determined by how our brains recognize and categorize our moments— either as positive, negative, or just neutral. Our Mood is created based on the number of Positive versus Negative moments we experience during our day.

PowerPoint Presentation:

“I don’t like you!” “You can’t play with us.” Ever say or do something and wish you could h ave it back? “Go Away” “I hate you” “You’re not my Friend”

PowerPoint Presentation:

Studies conducted by Dr. John Cacioppo of the University of Chicago have shown what he calls, “the negativity bias” of the brain. Negatives have a much greater impact on our brain. Our brains are actually more sensitive and responsive to unpleasant news and remarks. That’s why personal insults or criticism hit us harder and stay with us longer. Our brain needs a higher number of positive entries than negative ones to counterbalance the built‑in negativity bias . Several small, frequent , positive acts pack more punch than one giant-size positive. The size of the positive is not what counts; it’s the quantity. It’s strictly a numbers game . Positive vs. Negative Moments: Dr. John Gottman at the University of Washington recommends the formula of 5 to 1 moments for married couples . Mr. Ron Swantner , LPC Principal, recommends 7 to 1 moments for his students, staff, and families.

Everyone has an I nvisible Bucket. Our bucket’s purpose is to hold our good thoughts and feelings. Our bucket is constantly being emptied or filled, depending on what others say or do to us.
