It's #WellnessWednesday! At Catalayah, we start our morning by taking a few minutes to practice mindfulness in the classroom. Mindfulness means paying attention, with kindness and patience, to what's going on inside and outside of you right NOW. You can become mindful by noticing your breathing, focusing your attention, expanding your awareness, and being patient - even when things are hard. We pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them, without believing that there's a "right" or "wrong" way to think or feel in a given moment. When we practice, our thoughts tune into what we're sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future. One goal of mindfulness practice is to help calm the constant chatter in our minds throughout the day. Students and teachers enjoy the early morning mindful moment and are encouraged to revisit this practice whenever they need a reset. Thank you Mrs. McCombs for helping us be more mindful! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E70D-K5ZOfc #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Kids and teens have big life goals, and the New Year is a perfect time to plan for the coming year. Broad resolutions often don’t work out because they can be overwhelming!

This #WellnessWednesday tip can help reduce stress, build confidence, and clarify decision making. Sit down with your kids and work out one goal to work towards.

A picture is worth a thousand words. We hear it all the time. It can be especially helpful when communicating in our digital world to show a picture of something rather than typing it out. Or, maybe there is a certain point to be made by saving a portion of what is on the computer screen. Using the Windows Snip & Sketch application will help accomplish that. This #TechTipTuesday will demonstrate the many ways Microsoft’s Snip & Sketch can be used to capture images of what is on a computer screen and shared, posted, or saved for later reference. https://youtu.be/PZ_F60PbNPw

Happy New Year from Claremore Public Schools. As we enter into a new year, we all seem to take time to reflect on our lives, habits, choices from the past and contemplate how they impact our future. This reflection can lead to new inspiration, new goals, new resolutions, or a new focus. Instead of adding to, some reflection will lead to removing obstacles or habits from our lives. Either way, we are all looking for a positive change. Whether you choose a resolution, a goal, a word - we'd love for you to share it with us and maybe inspire others. We all know the usual resolutions, but here are some that might motivate you. ⭐ Focus on a passion ⭐ Spread positivity ⭐ Stop gossiping ⭐ Give one compliment a day ⭐ Do Random Acts of Kindness ⭐ Read a book a month ⭐ Go someplace you’ve never been ⭐ Clear out the clutter ⭐ Volunteer ⭐ Write down one thing you’re grateful for every night ⭐ Drink more water ⭐ Call a friend instead of texting them ⭐ You can Facetime them for extra measure ⭐ Don’t buy things you don’t need ⭐ Keep a journal ⭐ Clean out your car weekly ⭐ Take the stairs ⭐ Go to the dentist when you’re supposed to ⭐ Be kind on social media ⭐ Let go of grudges ⭐ Stay in touch with the people who matter ⭐ Try a totally new restaurant each month ⭐ Start a new hobby ⭐ Travel somewhere without posting about it on social media ⭐ Send handwritten letters ⭐ Donate clothes you never wear ⭐ Pay off a credit card ⭐ Avoid people who complain a lot ⭐ Remove negativity or anything that makes you feel lousy ⭐ Cook more / Eat Out Less ⭐ Do Something That Scares You ⭐ Make Your Bed Every Morning ⭐ Stay on Top of Your Inbox ⭐ Craft Something Yourself ⭐ Spot Clean as You Go ⭐ Pay it Forward ⭐ Talk Less, Listen More #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

It's essential to look back and find the good, the blessings, the positives, especially in the worst of times. As we prepare to leave 2020 behind, we'd love for you to share some positivity! What was your blessing, your triumph, your joy, your celebration? Tell us something GOOD that has happened this year in the comments of our FB page. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE #Wellness Wednesday

WORDS MATTER Finding yourself is not as crucial as creating yourself. Your words are compelling, defining, informing, careful of what you think and what you say. Many will be making resolutions later this week; others will choose a word to guide them for the new year. What word will you choose to help you grow in 2021? #CPSZEBRAPRIDE #MondayMotivation
