It is so important for teachers, this summer more so than normal, to get some rest! This is more than simply doing less.
Relax – Do less – ok, doing less is part of it. We need to be sure we do take some time to allow our bodies and minds to rejuvenate.
Express Yourself – What do you love doing? Gardening, reading, baking, dancing, listening to music, and many other things allow us to be creative, express ourselves and experience joy.
Stay Safe – Being injured or sick is not restful.
Try Something New – Say “yes” to something you would usually give a pass. One thing. Sudoku? Octopus soup? Who knows – you may love it!
