Positive Mindset Class
Be Positive and Stay Positive
Heather Behr - Positive Mindset Coach

Positive thinking is a mental and emotional attitude that focuses on the bright side of life and expects positive results. Having a positive mindset means making positive thinking a habit, continually searching for the silver lining, and making the best out of any situation you find yourself in.

Through fun, interactive group discussions, you'll understand the effects of negative self-talk, learn how to reframe your thoughts with positivity, and feel more confident in yourself.

This 8-week course will meet at the WEM High School building on Mondays, May 16, 23, June 6, 13, 20, 27, July 11 and 18. (Room TBD) The cost for this session is $100 per person. Online payment can be made by clicking on the link found at the end of the online registration form.
