The research by the one of the founders and leaders of Positive Psychology Professor Martin Seligman suggests you can impact your life your life in the above ways. When I explained to Martin Seligman my plan for Growing With Gratitude he responded by saying; "it is a worthy endeavour".

Most importantly what if your students developed habits of gratitude, empathy, kindness, positive reflection, mindfulness, optimism and service? The foundation of resilience and happiness. You will give your students the best chance to thrive in this crazy world.

In this crazy world what teacher is not busy?
