Your Monday root word of the week is: esth/aesth, which means: feeling, sensation, beauty. This Latin root appears in many English words such as: esthetician - someone who beautifies; aesthetic - pertaining to a sense of beauty; kinesthesia - the sensation of bodily movement.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK: “Nothing in life is certain except death and taxes.” – Ben Franklin
BRAINTEASER: What four-letter word can be written forward, backward or upside down, and can still be read from left to right?
Mindful Monday Moment - That was Guns and Roses with “Patience.” This is the theme of your Monday Mindfulness Moment. Patience is a quality that supports perseverance and fortitude when feelings of anxiety and stress are challenging. Patience offers a broader perspective, allowing you to see that moments of stress and anxiousness will pass in time. Try practicing some patience today, this week, and beyond in order to give yourself that broader perspective, to take away some of that stress, and to improve your overall interactions with other people.
Wednesday Wellness Wish - That was Florida Georgia Line with Meant to Be. This is the theme of your Wednesday Wellness Wish of the week. They sing the line, “No need to go nowhere fast. Let’s enjoy right here where we’re at.” This is an important idea given the fast-paced lives that we all live. Sometimes it’s healthy to just take the time to appreciate your surroundings, your environment, and the nice, fun, exciting things that are happening to you in the present. We get so caught up in racing towards the future that we often neglect how wonderful things are or how wonderful things could be right now if we give it the proper attention. Take the time today to thank a friend for being awesome to you. Take the time to really enjoy your favorite class of the day. Take the time to walk around the school and realize how many people are here, rooting for you to succeed. Like they sing, “let’s enjoy right here where we’re at” because this is a pretty special place and you guys are pretty special people.
