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.
  • You as Teachers and Parents Can:

    • 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'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!
