We can find something to be grateful for each and every day. This cube is the second cube developed in conjunction with Greg Hedler, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and based on the principles of positive psychology. By being thankful for what we experience, own, and manifest within ourselves, we are more willing to see the beauty in every challenge, lesson, and moment.
This cube was developed in conjunction with the Amal Alliance and leading trauma experts to provide psycho-social support to displaced children in refugee camps and informal settlements across the world. The Happy Cube is intended to engage children on multiple emotional levels that are inspired by self-compassion, mindful expression, self-regulation, happiness, loving kindness, and movement.
This cube, developed in conjunction with Greg Hedler, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, is based on the principles of positive psychology. Positive psychology focuses on the basic desire to fulfill our lives with goals that are meaningful and bring us self-actualization. Specifically, this cube helps us to reflect on the things going right in our daily lives – the little “wins” that make us proud and boost our mood.
Self-love is a journey, and it comes in different forms:
- Breathing: taking time to pause and reflect
- Communicating: being open with your own feelings and in your interactions with others
- Nourishing: sustaining your body with healthy fuel
- Moving: allowing ourselves to bend and stretch
- Challenging: testing our ability to take time for ourselves and monitor how we are feeling
- Creating a Routine: making time for the things that inspire us.
This cube reminds us of the most important things we can do for ourselves and encourages us to make better choices to nourish our souls as we deal with our daily challenges.
