During stressful situations, it can be hard to keep your calm.  The mind can start racing with all kinds of negative thoughts.  One mindfulness meditation activity that works really well to help calm you is deep breathing.  Try closing your eyes, and then focus on your breathing.  Take slow, deep breaths.  With every in breath, you focus on your diaphragm or belly, filling with air like a balloon.  As you exhale, you release any stress, worries, tension or negative thoughts.  Do this for 1-2 minutes, and then think about one thing you are grateful for.  Notice the difference in how you feel when you finish.

This week's senior of the week is Rebecca Balch. Rebecca's favorite school lunch is the mac-n-cheese with mini corn dogs; favorite teacher is Mrs. Kelly; favorite TV show is Black Mirror. Rebecca plans to attend Heartland in the fall. Something you may not have known about Rebecca is that she would like to publish her own comic book called "Skelecop."
