This assignment is to help guide your final project where you pick at least one concept/skill from our course and apply it to an area of your life (e.g., sport, performance, health, school, career, relationships) to strengthen or improve in that area. (You could combine skills for best effects)
Examples of potential skills or concepts to apply include but are not limited to the following: (imagery, relaxation, mindfulness, goal setting, concentration, stress management, etc.),
3 good things and why daily reflection, gratitude journal daily reflection, go-to thoughts daily scripting, go to people, positive self-talk, or Self-determination Theory (Ryan & Deci, 2000), , Broaden and Build theory of positive emotion (Fredrickson, 2009), Flow (Czikzenmihalyi, 2005), etc. Each week prior to the end of the semester, you will be asked to provide a reflection to your progress for your final project. The plan does NOT need to be more than 1 page (double-space) unless you would like to use more space (up to you autonomy!).
