Synopsis

We all want lives filled with balance, ease, and contentment--but how do we get there? In Pathways to Well-Being, authors Susan Brooks-Young and Sara Armstrong share steps to increasing well-being and discuss how six elements-gratitude, positivity, focus, empathy, kindness, and movement-impact daily life. All of us, especially educators, influence those around us-in our schools, in our communities, and ultimately throughout the world. When we work toward supporting well-being for ourselves and others, our lives are enriched immensely. Technology has made so many advances in recent years that it's hard to keep up. Devices can record our heartbeats, steps, and calories; alert us when someone is on our front porch; and much more. However, unintended consequences of being so connected can affect our well-being. By becoming more conscious of the influence technology tools have in our lives, we can change our practices and move toward a more balanced, healthy existence. In this book, the authors provide suggestions for how to address the unexpected consequences of technology use and increase positive connections, which ultimately lead to enhanced well-being.
