5 Examples to Identify Your Students' Comfort Zone, and
3 Ways to Help them Step Out of their Comfort Zone, to Increase Self-Esteem
Your Students’/Children's Comfort Zone May Be:
- Sitting alone at recess and not taking initiative to approach other children and start talking to them.
- Eating more and more junk food and candy,
even though it doesn't really make them feel good.
- Complaining that they are not good at math,
but do not take initiative to start learning,
or to get a private tutor.
- A negative thought that they think about over and over again.
- A particular habit that doesn’t benefit them at all and may even make them feel bad.
- Help your students/children become aware that they have comfort zones.
- Help your students/children identify their comfort zones.
- Have your students/children brainstorm ways to step out of their comfort zone into a brave zone and jump in at the deep end.
You as Teachers and Parents Can:
You'll be surprised to know that the thinking muscle for leaving a comfort zone is a very flexible muscle.
The more you use it, the more highly skilled it becomes,
and it becomes much less intimidating and threatening
for your students/children to cope with changes.
Ultimately, stepping out of their comfort zone,
does wonders for their self-esteem!
