Thank you Interchange for everything you do, you make my days great!
By Interchange Australia Marketing Coordinator Kelly Taylor.
Think positive, be positive and stay positive!
A person can change their future by changing their attitude. Since a young age we have been taught to “be positive”, but, it is more than a useful thought. Positive thinking is an emotional and mental attitude that focuses on the bright side and anticipates positive results. A positive outlook is an incredibly powerful asset to have, as positive thoughts breeds positive results.
Benefits of a positive attitude include success, happiness, health, and believing you can overcome any obstacle.
Interchange Australia Day Options runs a program called “Be My Best” which focuses on things like self-improvement, hygiene, goal setting, positive thinking for a positive life and consideration to how we treat others to name a few.
This week in Be My Best, our day options participants have been focusing on positive thinking and discussing qualities that they love about themselves and each other.
Following a group chat about being positive participants have put together a list of words and painted them onto a canvas to hang on their wall at the entrance of each house, demonstrating the positive things in their lives and the ways that they can continue to live a positive life.
Day Options participants and staff are encouraged to read this canvas each morning as they enter the house with the aim to set the mood for the day in a positive way.
