In this week’s Thursday Reflection, pupils learned about the psychological benefits of positive self-talk.
They began discussing whether it is normal to talk to yourself and then considered how different types of self-talk can influence our behaviour. After watching Avi Ofer’s TED-Ed video, ‘Is it normal to talk to yourself?’, pupils then considered what the benefits of positive self-talk may be, and specifically, where in their own day positive self-talk might help them.
