Accentuate the Positive

It has been a long, hard road navigating the countless challenges brought on by the pandemic. Even those of us who considered ourselves resilient or believed that we had strong coping mechanisms often found ourselves plagued with anxiety, self-doubt and fears about the future.

But, as we seek a path to a brighter day, there are approaches we can utilize that will help us to open our minds, challenge our preconceptions and break some of the bad habits we may have developed over the past year of isolation and social paralysis.

Accentuate The Positive  borrows from clinical and spiritual practice, academic, corporate and self-help teachings in providing us tools we can use to be more positive and productive including:

  • Time Management
  • Value Theory
  • Personal Organization
  • Emotional Vocabulary
  • Journal Writing
  • Creative Visualization
