How Gratitude Can Change Your Life

How Gratitude Can Change Your Life | Social & Emotional Learning for Students | Scoop.it
"If the only prayer you say in your life is ‘thank you,’ that would suffice" - Meister Eckhart. Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive.

If we can catch children at this age and help them to develop self-regulation skills, they will have a chance to break the cycle plaguing many in society today.  This is a program to watch for long-term success.

Sharen Howard's insight:

Students who lack  social skills or who are unable to regulate their emotions cause disruptions to learning for themselves and others. When we focus only on academic learning and forget the part of learning that makes us human, we leave out an area of impact that could, with the right level of intervention, make a difference for life for the child but academically as well.

Art of listening: Build relationships by fine-tuning your listening skills

Art of listening: Build relationships by fine-tuning your listening skills | Social & Emotional Learning for Students | Scoop.it

“Listening is an attitude of the heart, a genuine desire to be with another which both attracts and heals.” — Anonymous

 

“We do this when we listen,” she said. “ It’s also incredibly important that we listen to ourselves so we can understand and meet our own needs for self-care. That way we are better able to care for others. These acts of listening and caring for ourselves first is the realm of self-compassion.”

So what makes a good listener?

================================

Good listeners show genuine interest in

what’s being said and show empathy

to the speaker by caring.

Eli Levine's curator insight, March 25, 2014 1:40 PM

More than anything, a lack of listening, understanding and probing for the truth is what leads to the biggest failures in policy and decision making.

 

Just look at the mess that the US and Russia have created out of the Ukrainian situation.  Look what the Ukrainian government could have done in order to stave off Russian intervention and aggression.  It may not have worked in keeping the Russians out.  However, by embracing the Russian-speaking Ukrainians in government and in society, the Ukrainian-speaking population may have been able to give themselves a stronger point of argumentation against the Russian incursion into Crimea.  The failure to acknowledge both Russia's concerns about NATO taking over in Ukraine, plus the legitimate economic and social concerns of the ethnic Russians in Eastern and Southern Ukraine is probably what at least partially led to the current state of affairs in Ukraine.

 

And the US, for our part, failed to acknowledge, listen and abide by the other peoples' interests as well, choosing instead to small-selfishly pursue our own ends regardless of the costs and consequences of that pursuit in the grand scheme of things.

 

Think about it.
