You may be surprised to learn that this is The Learning Centre at Kwantlen University in Surrey, B.C. (I'll bet that you're smiling now.)
The smiley face serves as a visual reminder of what the students encounter here - a place with heart. Dave, Joan and the others who work here have created an environment that is safe for the students, many who are away from home for the first time. In fact, Joan is often referred to as "Academic Mom".
What does the smiley face represent to the people who spend time in The Learning Centre?
- safe environment
- positive side to learning
The same thing happens when you transform your stress - your heart helps melt your worries and leads to:
- increased self-confidence
- reduced fear
- greater ability to bounce back from stressful events
- learning becomes enjoyable
- more fun
I'd like to suggest that when it comes to stress you do the same. Consider how stress is affecting you. Compare programmes & results. Choose to change your perception by activating the power of your heart.
