Grade 8 Expeditions Reflection

A few events that “expanded my comfort zone” were the production presentation, the “after act,” and part of the canyoning. They were challenging in the way that they had me doubtful and got my adrenaline pumping; I had to remind myself that there wasn’t many apparent ways to mess them up, and, statistically, I probably wouldn’t get hurt. Also, a strategy I used for basically all of the expeditions was insulting myself until I’ve had enough, not sure if that’s healthy or if I may have a problem, but it works.

Something I could take from this is that your mind makes most things seem worse than they actually are, the buildup is often over exaggerated, making your expectations for something intimidating skyrocket.
