Give Yourself a Hug Some may say this is the saddest thing they’ve ever heard, but you can ALWAYS give yourself a hug! Your neurons don’t know it’s you — they’re just neurons, and when they get squeezed they activate and think, “Someone loves me!” and then happy hormones start swirling in the brain and bloodstream. So go ahead and hug yourself — it will make you feel better!

Listen. Most of us never truly listen to people when they are speaking to us, because we’re too busy planning what to say next, judging what they are saying, or getting lost in daydreams altogether. Next time you’re in a conversation, make it your goal to fully listen to what the other person is saying to you, without getting lost in your thoughts. Trust that you will know the right thing to say next when it’s your turn to speak.

Pause between action. Pause and listen to the sound of the phone ringing before answering it. Pause and feel the weight of your body in your chair before beginning your work for the day.

Observe your breathing. As Echkart Tolle once said, a single breath in and out is a meditation. Your breathing occurs naturally and rhythmically. When you pay attention to it, it takes you out of your mind and into your body. You momentarily free yourself from your churning thoughts, worries and fears, and you remind yourself of who you really are — your inner spirit, not your thoughts

Walk mindfully. Take a beautiful tip from spiritual leader Thich Nhat Hanh and “walk as if you are kissing the earth with your feet.” In others words, when you are out and about, pay attention occasionally to the movement of your body and your surroundings. Notice as your feet connect with and leave the ground. Feel your muscles moving and supporting you. Observe what is going on around you — the sights, sounds and life unfolding. You may be amazed to find a whole new world you hadn’t even noticed before.

The Yearbook Club will be meeting after school on Tuesday in room 137.

Eat mindfully. When you scoff down your meal on autopilot while distracted by the television, computer or constant conversation, you miss out on the delicious taste and smell of your food. You’re also less likely to feel satisfied and nourished, because you ‘missed out’ on the fact that you ate. It can be helpful to remember this phrase: When you eat, eat. When you drink, drink. In other words, don’t attempt to do fifty other things when you sit down to a meal, coffee or green juice. Simply focus all of your attention on what is in front of you.

Good morning! Snowmakers have been hard at work over the past week and new terrain has opened daily at Windham Ski Resort!

Interactions With Others
Our bodies can give us a lot of insight into our relationships and connection to others, especially during moments of intense emotion. When you see that one classmate, do you feel tension come into your shoulders, tightness spread to your stomach? Perhaps, you may realize that you are bringing tension from an earlier experience, such as a rough day at school, and taking it out on a loved one. Noticing how our bodies feel can help us understand how we are feeling in the moment, which allows us to step away from knee-jerk, unhelpful reactions.

Body Scan. Ever notice that when we have a significant ache or a pain, it feels impossible to ignore it? Here’s the interesting question: how often are you aware and appreciative of all the times or parts of your body when they are not in pain, but perhaps feeling quite comfortable? If you are like most of us, we almost never notice the absence of pain or discomfort. To become more aware of your body, try a mindful body scan. Pause and take a few breaths. Then begin to scan how your body feels today, noticing the parts that feel relaxed and comfortable, and which parts feel tense and uncomfortable, without trying to change them. Start with the top of the head and scan down to the feet, including all the little components of your body. For example, you might start scanning this way: the top of the head, then the scalp, then ears, forehead, eyes, lips, jaws, and so on. The tricky part is to avoid dwelling on areas of discomfort, which is what we tend to do in our normal lives. The goal is just to notice what feels comfortable and what feels uncomfortable, without attempting to change anything. This exercise can be really useful for when you are experiencing tension or pain, as it helps point out all of the parts that are not in pain, giving you some perspective on the experience.

REMINDER: THERE ARE NO LATE BUSES TODAY.

Mindful Studying When you sit down to study, spend a minute or two becoming aware of your physical surroundings: the feeling of sitting in the chair; the sounds around you. Take a few breaths, focusing on the physical sensation of the inhale and exhale. When you begin to work, set a timer for about 20 or 25 minutes. Each time that you find yourself distracted, try to notice when it has happened as early as you can. Then take a few more breaths and come back to your work. Remember that distractions are inevitable, so there is no need to become frustrated or impatient. As you practice mindfulness, you will have fewer distractions.

This year’s Stage Creation Production of “Nightmare on Kenwood” is going to be the scariest play ever produced at BCMS.

Mindful Monday
Mindfulness. It’s a pretty straightforward word. It suggests that the mind is fully attending to what’s happening, to what you’re doing, to the space you’re moving through. That might seem trivial, except for the annoying fact that we so often veer from the matter at hand. Our mind takes flight, we lose touch with our body, and pretty soon we’re engrossed in obsessive thoughts about something that just happened or fretting about the future. And that makes us anxious.
Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.

Mindful Breathing

The breath is often looked as the root of mindfulness. It is a behavior that can either be done automatically, which is how most of us live, or intentionally and with awareness. Without trying to breathe in any special way, turn your attention to the physical sensation of breathing. Feel how the lungs and chest expand on each inhale and then relax on the exhale. Notice where in your body you experience the physical sensation strongest: is it in your chest? Stomach? Nose? There is no need to try to change what you are feeling; the goal is simply to focus on your breathing for a couple minutes in a nonjudgmental way. Mindful breathing is a good introduction to mindfulness and can help you feel more calm after just a minute or two.

Attention Actors and Stage Crew for Secret of the Wax Museum. All cast and crew should check their e-mail today for some important rehearsal changes.

Hi, my name is Emma and I am Juliette, we are members of “No Place for Hate.”

No Place for Hate is the student leadership group that is sponsoring our actions today in support of those students who lost their lives two weeks ago in Florida, but today is also about us, the students of BCMS.

No Place for Hate recognizes that when we students support each other, we help to put an end to violence. No Place for Hate is about working to create an environment where every student feels included and welcomed in our school.

If you choose to participate in today’s Walk Out, we ask that you do so because you support those who lost their lives. We also ask that you do so to show support for all of our fellow student’s right here in our school.

Today and tomorrow during your lunch period, there will be a table set up outside the cafeteria. Please stop by and sign your name to the ‘I Promise’ pledge to show your support in continuing to create a safe learning environment for everyone here at BCMS.

No Place for Hate wishes to thank the staff and administration of BCMS for their support of our mission and now over to (Mr. Warford) for details about today.

An important reminder for all students in regards to the No Place for Hate message you just heard; this is a silent “show of support”. The reason why this is important, is that a “moment of silence” is typically the way we show our sympathy and empathy for others whenever a terrible event has occurred, or to show solidarity for an important cause. It should be noted that as part of the collaboration between students and administration mentioned by Emma and Juliette, includes the fact that no students that participate in this event will be subject to disciplinary action.

However, this does not apply to any students who do not respect the nature of being silent during this “show of support”, from the time you leave your classroom until the time you return, or students that do not adhere to the timelines for the event. Ladies, thank you and the entire NP4H group for your leadership with this.

Winners of the BCMS Ping-Pong Tournaments are:

Mindful Breathing
The breath is often looked as the root of mindfulness. It is a behavior that can either be done automatically, which is how most of us live, or intentionally and with awareness. Without trying to breathe in any special way, turn your attention to the physical sensation of breathing. Feel how the lungs and chest expand on each inhale and then relax on the exhale. Notice where in your body you experience the physical sensation strongest: is it in your chest? Stomach? Nose? There is no need to try to change what you are feeling; the goal is simply to focus on your breathing for a couple minutes in a nonjudgmental way. Mindful breathing is a good introduction to mindfulness and can help you feel more calm after just a minute or two.
