The session started with the impact of communication by taking perspective where it was stated that it takes 3 minutes to judge a person based on his/her perception and a person who talks positive things is more likable than a person who always criticizes everything.

After this, the speaker discussed fear and from where it originates. It was discussed that most of the times fear arises during the early days of our lives. Speaker took the live example of her about the fear of water and how she is still petrified with the thought of swimming even in a two feet deep pool. Fear is something which is either related to the past or with people’s influence. Fear is something that hides our potential. When people say they can’t do something, they are hiding their potential and restricting themselves from doing it.

Then students talked about appreciation, which is an art of turning negative words into positive. Replacement of words must be done in such a manner that it should sound positive and cheerful. The word problem can be replaced with the word challenge as a problem creates a negative mindset and makes the task impossible whereas the word challenge makes the thing doable and solution-oriented. Similarly, some sentences can also be replaced to sound positive, such as we can use the sentence, “I need rest” instead of “I am too tired”. This eliminates the feeling of frustration or anger on both the speaker and the listener and creates a sense of empathy. The communication should be in such a manner that it should avoid the use of negative words, it should be solution-oriented and no force or coercion should be applied while speaking. 

Second phase of an activity was conducted on Appreciation, where the students had to write positive qualities of their respective seat partners and it was shown that it is easy to criticize and difficult to appreciate other people. The students participated actively in this task.

The topic of our conscious and subconscious mind was also touched upon. It was said that our subconscious mind has the power to remember everything and it does, when it likes something and our conscious mind remembers things that may or may not be of our liking.

The session concluded with the same activity that is stated above and on how to cope with stress and anxiety by not dwelling into the past or not becoming too much anxious about the future and living in the present peacefully.
