Simple Ways to Cultivate Happiness in Schools

Just wanted to share an article titled “Simple Ways to Cultivate Happiness in Schools”. Number 2 on the list is “Get Outside” which is one of the best parts of being a Physical Education teacher. Simi Valley HS has a beautiful campus and one of my favorite things is enjoying the mountains in the background from the field. Number 3 on the list is “Move Your Body”, also a perk of Physical Education. The most frustrating thing is when students fight tooth and nail on moving around! Enjoy a different kind of mental engagement and move around!!!

    I am lucky that I can incorporate music into some of my classes. All while having the kids move their bodies. I have found that playing music can change the mood of the whole class and give their motivation a little boost. Music is a huge part of our students lives.(How many do we see walking around with earbuds stuck in their ears?)
    I’ve also experienced the benefit of quiet time. Once a week I guide my students in a visualization relaxation. We all have stressors in our lives and sometimes we just need to relax in the moment( both students AND teachers!) this doesn’t take away their problems or the workload, but hopefully it will leave them feeling safe, calm, and relaxed….which provides an endless amount of health benefits!!
