With the eye to raise the bar on Positive Psychology and Holistic Positivity and thereby apply it to the classroom the Positive Imperative launches our Fourth Facebook Page, the Positive Teacher Imperative. It joins our Positive Imperative Page, our Positive Word Imperative Page (PosiWord) our Positive Love Imperative Page and of course the twin of the Positive Imperative movement, the Positive Music Imperative Facebook Page.
One proven exercise from positive psychology is the mental scrapbook exercise. The idea is to create a mental scrapbook in your head of times when you were happy, proud, excited, and/or confident – recollections that involve a variety of positive emotional experiences. That way, when you want to access a particular positive feeling to enhance the emotional quality of the present moment, you simply have to pull up that photo in your mental scrapbook to bring about the emotion you want.
