What Does it Mean to Thrive?

Posted by MooreCo Inc on Sep 22, 2021 1:56:37 PM

At MooreCo, we’re big on thriving. Our Thrive Philosophy came about in 2019, to place a focus on the design of spaces that encourage physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, social-emotional, and moral development. But even as there was an opportunity to help students thrive then, the pandemic made that need even more dire. The past year has taken a toll on students, teachers, and parents in ways that will take time to recover from. With the help of ESSER funds being allocated to schools to help with this recovery, our hope is that each school and student will have access to the resources and spaces they need to truly thrive.

The Four Corners of Harmonious Classroom Design

Posted by MooreCo Inc on Jun 30, 2021 1:16:34 PM

“To slow time down, practice enjoying the moment. It is where we spend our entire lives.” This wisdom from the I Ching describes an ideal way to live by slowing down. In the digital age, however, it’s getting more and more difficult to take this sage advice. Because of the pandemic, we are even more devoted to time spent on our devices, staring at screens with fast-paced minds. Among students, this trend has had some negative consequences. Adolescents and young adults (known as Gen Z) are struggling with mental health more than previous generations. When students return to school this fall, it will be important to consider their mental, physical, and emotional health. But educators, parents, and school designers would be remiss to discount the benefits of considering students’ spiritual development when creating spaces and schedules for student health. This doesn’t mean subscribing to a certain system of belief. It can be as simple as integrating space for silence, breathing, and reflection.
