Teach Tip Tuesday: Refresh and Refocus

Last week in Teach Tip Tuesday I suggested that you should make some lists to help keep you sane as we approach the end of term. Keep doing this. I will definitely help maintain your sanity.

I don’t know about you but in the last few days I am already feeling tired by 10.30am trying to muster enough energy to complete at least 3 items from my lists seems almost impossible. If you are feeling this way you are not alone.

This week my tip is short and sweet.

Take 30 minutes to refresh and refocus. Do something that makes you happy and has nothing to do with school. Take a walk on the beach, go to yoga, read a book, listen to a pod cast, what ever it is that helps you. It is so important to fill your bucket.

I think that we all need this time most weeks but it is especially important when we are dedicating even more hours in the next couple of weeks just to get things done.

If you can refresh once a day that’s great, but just taking that time once a week for yourself could be just what the doctor ordered.

Keep Healthy and Sane Guys.
