As students undertake an activity, the educator leads them through a four-step process to create, follow, monitor, and revise a self-development plan for improved physical, mental, and emotional well-being. This can be done individually, in small groups, or in whole-group instruction.
Developing one's physical, mental and spiritual capacities can have a positive impact on students' success in school through the development of such skills as persistence, grit, resilience, self-direction, and self-esteem, and can improve one's general health, personal outlook, and well-being, which promotes more focused attention and concentration, improved motivation and conscientiousness, and deeper learning.
