For real, y’all. Put rest on your schedule. It’s been something that I have been more intentional about doing. I’ve even been creative in my rest. It’s not always about sleep, sometimes it’s about just detaching, sitting, breathing, closing my eyes, using my essential oils.
Definition of rest: Rest is about having downtime; it’s about allowing yourself time to relax, reset and recover, whether that’s from your work or home life, or both. It’s about taking care of you and being able to quiet yourself.
Benefits of rest:
👍🏽Get sick less often. 👍🏽Lower your risk for serious health problems, like diabetes and heart disease. 👍🏽Reduce stress. 👍🏽 Improve your mood. 👍🏽Think more clearly and do better in school and at work. 👍🏽Get along better with people.
Hello fellow teachers and friends! This is my second time setting up a blog. Don't laugh!! I hope that I can keep it up! It is definitely something that I have been wanting to do for a long time. So here it goes! I’ve was in the classroom for 13th years as an elementary school teacher. It is amazing to think that! I can't believe that I have taught four years in first grade, seven years in second grade, and two years in fifth grade! The bulk of my teaching was in the state of Virginia and the rest in Georgia. My 13 years teaching have taught me a lot about authentic teaching, life long learning and the dreaded state testing all while adjusting to a higher grade level. I truly feel that those years upped my level teaching in ways that I never could have imagined! I am now an Instructional Coach! This blog will be my journey. Hopefully you will stick with me!
