About the Meeting 02-27-2020:
Edward Estipona and Mikalee Byerman
"Just the Positive"
Mikalee started off the presentation by encouraging each of us to start creating space for "good news" in our minds every morning. The first thing that 40%-60% of us do in the morning is to grab our cell phones where 83% of us either read emails, check a social media platform or check the news headlines. Three minutes of negative news headlines first thing in the morning can lead to 8 hours of grumpiness. If you practice positivity, it can lead to a "happiness advantage". 
Both Edward and Mikalee encouraged each of us to go to their justthepositive.com website where you can find:
  • People doing spectacular stuff
  • Stories that make us laugh or smile
  • Social causes and philanthropy
  • Things you can do to spread positivity
  • "Spotlight the Good" - Nominate someone who is making the world better and whose efforts should be recognized
  • Subscribe to their "High Five" newsletter where once a month you will receive five stories of people's positive contributions to the community
