Get Comfortable with "Uncomfortable"


Get Comfortable with "Uncomfortable!"  zipaDeeBee Bracelet

For the two solid colored beads say, "I can be uncomfortable.   I will be uncomfortable."  It's gonna happen.  It's inevitable. You don't have to like it or look forward to it, but you can do hard things.

For the multi-colored bead say, "I will feel comfortable again." Discomfort is temporary.  It may last longer than we'd appreciate . . . but it will have a life cycle.

For the angel wings charm, say the last sentence of Luther's Morning and Evening Prayers:  "Let Your holy angel be with me, that the evil foe may have no power over me. Amen"

Repeat, Repeat, Repeat . . .

A mantra is a slogan, statement or word that you repeat over and over.  It is another tool to calm and self-regulate!

Luther’s Morning Prayer

Prayer Hands -- I thank you, my Heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your Dear Son, 

Side Stretch -- that You have kept me this night from all harm and danger; 

Side Stretch -- and I pray that You would keep me this day also from sin and every evil, 

Extended Mountain -- that all my doings and life may please You.  

Twinkle Hands Down to Legs -- For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things.  

Breathing Wings -- Let Your holy angel be with me, that the evil foe may have no power over me. Amen

Luther’s Evening Prayer

I thank You, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have graciously kept me this day; and I pray that You would forgive me all my sins where I have done wrong, and graciously keep me this night. For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the evil foe may have no power over me. Amen.

Llamarama Yoga Time


Having fun with with llamas for our last Yoga Time with Mrs. Broam!

It's a LLAMARAMA!🦙🦙🦙🦙🦙

Five Ways to Check In and BE MINDFUL:

(1) Take "5" deep breaths (5 green beads)

(2) Notice "4" things around you. What do you see? (smiley face charm)

(3) Name "3" things you are grateful for (thank you heart charm)

(4) Share "2" PAWsitive statements (paw charm)

(5) Think of "1" thing you are looking forward to today! (unicorn charm)

"5-4-3-2-1" -- Thank you for sharing this idea with me, Ms. Arnette! I love making bracelets to remember important ideas! I appreciate these strategies to help me slow down, show appreciation, and be present.

 Following this "check in" plan, we began with deep breathing . . .


While warming up our bodies, we noticed things around us!

One yogi saw a "llamacorn"~a llama with a unicorn horn!!🦄

While holding full plank we shared what we appreciate:  Mrs. Broam appreciates the yogis participating!  We appreciate the good breakfast we enjoyed today. While working side planks, we practiced positive statements: "I'm strong!  I can do hard things!"

Our work today included being animals from this good story!

This animal hangs by its feet, lives in a cave . . . 
a bat! 

This animal has a long neck, white feathers, and wings . . . 

a swan!

This animal grazes on grass and likes to say "MOO!"
a cow!

This animal has whiskers and flippers, eats fish . . . 
 a seal!

We practiced some of our learning: What is our "Circle of Control?" -- "ALL Feelings are OK" -- "There's Gonna Be Problems . . . but we are PROBLEM-SOLVERS!" -- When Solving a Problem or Managing a Feeling: (1) Nobody Gets Hurt (2) Nothing Gets Broken -- "My Business is Enough Business to Keep Me Busy!"

We closed with sharing one thing we are looking forward to today!  Yogis look forward to spending time with friends and family.💚💛💚💛

Namaste, Yogi Friends!

Thanks for yoga-ing with me!  Have a great last couple weeks of summer!🌞
