We all have impulses to do and say things, but these impulses aren’t always in our best interest or helpful to others. Being resilient doesn’t mean ignoring these impulses, but it does require you to stop acting on every impulse that doesn’t serve you well. The skills of impulse control can be learnt.
- Students can recognise that being resilient doesn’t mean that we don’t feel impulsive; rather, it means that we learn to control our impulses.
By the end of the lesson, students will be able to:
- identify many kinds of impulses
- use a strategy for managing their impulses
Activity: What are impulses? 15 min
- In small groups, students write down on Post-it Notes as many examples of impulses as they can think of.
- Students work together to group their responses into categories.
