Life Skills- Other
Optimistic people are more likely to be physically healthy, mentally alert, emotionally grounded, and spiritually connected than are pessimistic people. They tend to have more stable relationships over time and more career success. Although genetics and early childhood environment do play a role in whether optimism comes easily, optimistic thinking and behavior can be learned. Motivational speaker Constance Hallinan Lagan opens the window on optimistic thinking for those who have yet to experience the joy of a life lived positively and encourages those who are already actively attempting to “stamp out” negativity to continue their quest. Topics include affirmative thinking, gratitude, forgiveness, prioritizing happiness, sharing, present-moment living, and positive learning. The seminar concludes with a guided visualization meditation.
