I can't tell you how much I needed to hear this reminder of focusing on the positive and being grateful. The media seems to focus on the negative and you hear that so much you feel like everything is bad. It can truly be depressing. When my children were little at bedtime, I used to have them tell me two things they were thankful for and I can tell you that I will start doing this again for me. We all need a positive spin on the world.

These five items are so simple to do, yet so easily overlooked. I can see the benefits of utilizing these ideas in the classroom, and take very little time to do. Thank you for the ideas!
