Mariner Weekly!

April 12, 2021


Welcome Back! I hope that you all had an opportunity to rest and re-charge throughout the break. We are entering the final stretches of a challenging school year. Our students and staff have been thriving and will continue to do so as we work together to keep each other safe.

This week, please enjoy High School South's student, Kelle Andwander's information to increase awareness about the power of Positive Thinking. Positive thinking does not mean to ignore all of the bad things and only focus on happy things in your life. It really just means to approach every situation with an uplifting and positive idea, and to not think of the worst of that situation. Positive thinking stems from the little voice that you hear inside of your head, and these thoughts seem automatic but with practice and different exercises, anyone can turn their inner voice to think positively. Some exercises that can help you transition your mind to think positively include, mirror exercises, a gratitude journal, spin tactics, “on the other hand,” and countless more. A mirror exercise to help you think positively is when you wake up in the morning--go straight to a mirror and start listing off the good things about yourself; this will help you to be in a better and more positive mood throughout the day. Next, a gratitude journal is simply a small notebook or journal that you fill with positive things that have happened to you, or things that you are grateful for; this will help you to remember all of the good in your life. Spin tactics and “on the other hand” exercises are both very similar because in both exercises you simply think about the negative thing in your life and figure out a way to turn it around into something positive. Whatever the negative thing may be, simply think about what that event/thing is teaching you, what you are gaining from it, or think about any way that it could be converted into a positive idea. Positive thinking is easy to achieve and simple to maintain, so think positively.
