Perform a mindful action that affects your community in a positive way.
Some suggestions are:
The Week of May 24th Meadows Focus: I Choose to be Positive.
The Week of May 17th Meadows Focus: I Make Wise Choices.
That means paying attention to our surroundings and making thoughtful decisions that keep everyone in the house happy.
For example, if you're watching a show in the same room as a family member that's reading, you can make a mindful choice to use headphones so that you don't disrupt their quiet time.
Can you think of another way to be more mindful in this situation?
At the beginning of the week, set goals on when and how you will practice mindfulness throughout the week
Next time when you feel stuck on a problem, take a deep breath and know that you always have options.
Brainstorm on what choices you can make to move forward.
Think about what will happen after you make each choice.
Which one of the options will lead to the best outcome for you and people around you?

The Week of April 26th Meadows Focus: My Feelings Matter, So Do Yours.
Do you remember a time when you and your friend wanted to do different things during recess? Maybe you wanted to play gaga ball but your friend wanted to play tag. What did you do?
One way to maintain positive relationships is to be accepting of others’ perspectives, even when they’re different from yours. Perspective means point of view, or how you think or feel about something.
Our Meadows Focus Challenge this week is to listen with an open mind and try to understand others’ perspectives. Then, practice communicating your point of view to them as well.
Understanding different ways of thinking helps us be a good friend and also helps our brains grow. So, let’s practice our listening skills this week, Mustangs, because my feelings matter and so do yours!

This image offers a great way to show that there are different perspectives. Other peoples' thoughts and feelings can be very different than our own. They are different because we each have different experiences and memories. This means we can look at or experience something similar and have very different thoughts and feelings about it.
