The Power of Positive Thinking
As we approach midterms, be mindful of stress and anxiety. Mindfulness and positive thinking can help us shift our mindset and take care of ourselves.
"Numerous studies have already proven the power of positive thinking and just how effective our minds can be when it comes to altering our entire perception on things. As an eLearner, the first and most important thing you can do is to shift your attitude towards study from thinking of it as a chore and turning it into something you enjoy.
Some simple ways to improve your study mindset, as recommended by psychologist Dr. John M. Grohol, include:
- Avoid catastrophic thinking, and always try to find the upside in a situation.
- Always think positively as you study, and if you’re not feeling positive then step away and do another task until your mindset has changed.
- Avoid comparing yourself with others, whether it’s students or peers, as this approach never helped anyone to succeed."
