The Science of Hope
Studies suggest that the impact of being hopeful is stronger on a kid’s future academic success than feelings of self-worth or a positive attitude towards life. Additional research shows that students who are hopeful tend to be good problem-solvers and demonstrate more creativity. They have stronger friendships, exhibit lower levels of depression and anxiety and are less likely to drop out of school.

A person who is high in hope knows how to:
✔️ Set clear and attainable goals.
✔️ Develop multiple strategies to reach those goals.
✔️ Stay motivated to use the strategies to attain the goals, even when the going gets tough.

When hope is low
A kid who feels hopeless often has trouble setting and reaching goals. They’re likely to pick easy tasks that don’t offer any challenge or opportunity for growth and when they fail, they quit.

To assess your kid’s level of hope, use the Children’s Hope Scale created by Dr. Charles R. Snyder, a psychologist who pioneered the study of hope. The scale is used in schools to help teachers determine how to support a student’s learning.

How to grow hope
The good news is: hope can be learned. You might say it’s like a muscle; exercise it and it grows. Kids who use positive self-talk are more likely to stick with a task, recover from their mistakes, and complete a goal.

Learn more about the science of hope here.

The science behind it
Neuroscientists who are studying the science of hope have discovered that hopefulness changes the brain. In his book, The Anatomy of Hope, Dr. Jerome Groopman explains that belief and expectation, the key components of hope, can block pain by releasing the brain’s endorphins and enkephalins — the body’s own version of a painkiller. He adds, “Hope, I have come to believe, is as vital to our lives as the very oxygen that we breathe.”

Mindful Mondays

Life is hard. Mindfulness can help.
 
What?
Mindfulness refers to a set of practices, certain habits of mind - as well as a general way of being in life.
 
Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally. It’s about knowing what is on your mind.
 
Another way to say it - mindfulness is paying attention to your life here and now with kindness and curiosity.

When + How?
Mindfulness can be done during sitting meditation, movement activities such as running, walking or yoga and even while eating, doing school work or during other typical daily moments.
Beginning on December 7th, join Mrs. Cory each Monday morning at 8:15 am to learn how to use mindfulness as a way to help with the challenges present in your daily life. Meet details below!
 
Why?
Mindfulness practices in schools have been shown to improve students’ emotional well-being, academic performance and relationships.
