Have You Got the Time?

Okay... let's see. Schools out for the summer and let me guess - you're bored already. What's up with that? I mean, it's okay to have some downtime, you probably deserve it, or not. Anyway, everybody should take a 'brain break' now and then.

A 'brain break' is when you just let your mind wander. Practice now... take some deep breaths in and out through your nose, close your eyes and focus on what you feel inside and hear going on around you. Notice what thoughts are bouncing around in your head.

How'd that feel? Kinda weird?? If you felt strange, it's probably because you're not used to just thinking and being still. Go back to when you were taking deep breaths and zoning out. Do you remember what thoughts were going on in your head and how body felt?

Find a piece of paper and write down what you were thinking and where you felt it in your body. Have you done it? Okay good. Now look at what you wrote down. Does it match? For instance, if you were thinking about shooting hoops later today - did you get butterflies in your stomach or did your palms get sweaty?

Butterflies may mean you're excited, sweaty palms may also mean you're excited, it 's up to you to realize exactly what you're feeling. Let me give you another example. You know that feeling you get when the rollercoaster suddenly drops. That on the edge, ohmygod drop. It's funny, you laugh, ha-ha. But if you're on an airplane and you suddenly get that same feeling and oh by the way, the oxygen masks drop, it's not so funny.

Same feeling, different idea about it. What I'm trying to tell you is that knowing how your body feels can help you judge where your head is. Sometimes your head can get you into trouble, because you don't listen to what your body is saying. Learn to use what you think and feel.

I'm sure that you have heard of Socrates, Plato, and Artistole, etc... The greatest thinkers of our time. Ya know what they did? They said, we are going to just think and write and try to figure out stuff. They turned out more books in less time than ever in history. Imagine that. Brain breaks.

So the next time that you're bored. Close your eyes, take some deep breaths and think about yourself. Who knows what you could come up with?

    My dad and I are kind of estranged, we haven't spoken in a year. So my mom decides it would be a good idea to let him message me. He texted me while I was at school and now I have no idea what to do. All he said was 'Hi _, how is school?'. Do I reply? Do I not? If I do, what do I say? My mom and grandparents are no help, they just cracked jokes about it. KidzWorld has helped me with a hell lot of things, I better not be let down this time.

    Just act like you were introducing him as one of your friends. Be yourself, wear stuff that’s comfortable. It’s okay to be nervous because everyone will be. Just hang out and have fun.

    one day I was eating lunch with my friends and two boys, (I'm a girl). when one boy told his friend and some other people, everyone but me who he had a crush on. At the end of lunch someone told me and it was me, later on he confirmed it and his friend told us he was on the verge of tears because I found out. people were telling everyone he liked me. Earlier I told him I liked him as not to make him feel bad, he told his friend who told everyone. soon rumors were started my best friend and his had teamed up to make an unstoppable rumor making and spreading team.  on monday it was our all day field trip and he needed to tell me something so on the way back we sat together across from his friend. She asked him if he still liked me. I covered my eyes but could still see and he was saying no but nodding his head. I told him to just tell me and he said yes. By then the rumors were getting really bad so in order to stop them we started hanging out, and became best friends. its summer now and we text each other all the time but we are just friends the rumors have blown over but now another has become true. through all of this,  I really like him now. I don't know I f he still likes me but I know that I really want him too because I really like him now! What do I do? Please help me! I'm so lost! this is all like a nightmare! what if it starts again. What do I do!
