Well-Being Tool Kit
We highly recommend that learners take all 4 course-pathways in the suggested sequence to get the full benefit of the course. However, the first two course-pathways are mandatory. If a learner has taken Pathway 1 and Pathway 2, they can enroll in single courses and specialized courses and workshops.
Pathway 1: Creating Self-Awareness
Awareness is the first point of change. Makes sense doesn’t it? If you don’t have a good understanding of how your brain works, or how your emotions and thoughts impact your behavior, you won’t understand how to manage yourself in any given situation.
Self-management is key to well-being.
Learning Intention: Sai Shiko’s 1st pathway of well-being focuses on building knowledge about how our brain works and develops tools and techniques that help learners build higher levels of self- awareness and self-management.
Pathway 2: Build Realistic Thinking
What you think directly influences how you feel and how you behave. Often, however, we are not able to accurately assess our situation in a balanced manner. Thinking realistically helps us take balanced steps to address any situation good or bad.
Learning Intention: Sai Shiko’s 2nd pathway focuses on building thinking habits that allow learners to think realistically about any situation, good or bad, and respond in a balanced manner.
Pathway 3: Build Positive Relationships
How well you relate to and communicate with others has a direct impact on your daily and long-term well-being. At the heart of relating to others is the ability to communicate empathetically and positively.
Learning Intention: Sai Shiko’s 3rd pathway focuses on building effective speaking and listening skills in learners that are key to building and sustaining meaningful and positive relationships with peers and friends.
Pathway 4: Take Action
An ability to get things done on your own and on time, helps to develop a sense of personal effectiveness. This in turn, reinforces a sense of accomplishment and confidence.
Learning Intention: Sai Shiko’s 4th pathway is focused on building time-management skills and goal-directed behavior. Together, these tools allow students to create a road-map for small and big tasks they need to complete.
