Los Angeles, CA, June 04, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- In today’s world, everyone’s life is filled with stress. Imagine working in a police department which is constantly filled with bad news and other crises. Santa Monica College Police learned how to see the good in every day when Rosalyn Kahn spoke to them on “How to Live a Happier Life.”
Idalia Villegas said of the talk, “Sometimes we really do need to stop and smell the roses. I stopped what I was doing and really focused on the importance of random acts of kindness.”
In her talk Rosalyn showed the audience research by Shawn Anchor, who developed the study of Positive Psychology while doing graduate work at Harvard University. His research showed despite every day’s events there are always good things we can find. Rosalyn illustrated this by using the example of being open to seeing nature’s natural beauty.
Audience member Audrey Steele said it was amazing that the talk focused on the same message she just finished reading in "Game of Life" by Florence Scovel Schinn.
Others described the talk as “Changing the world with kindness, love and positive thoughts.” To illustrate this, she opened the training room blinds so the audience could admire the blue sky and the gorgeous red roses. “How many of you have ever noticed them?” she asked. Very few said yes.
Ms. Kahn also requested a moment of silence for the participants to reflect on the recent tragedy at UC Santa Barbara. Just a year ago, Santa Monica College Corsair reported they faced an incident of violence which had made the headlines. Rosalyn reminded all the participants that “Our lives are filled with uncertainty,” she said. “The goal is to value each day we live as if it were our last.”
Rosalyn Kahn will sign her book "Random Acts of Kindness are Changing the World" on June 14 at Perks Coffee House, 9028 Balboa Blvd. Northridge, California beginning at 11 am. Her upcoming schedule can be found at www.rosalynkahn.com or she can reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
