HOW FULL IS YOUR CUP?
The truth is, when we spend time doing something that makes us feel good, we are doing wonders for the people around us too. Our brains and our bodies are more calm and able to handle stress when we have taken care of our own needs. Basically, when you feel good, you can do good!
Now more than ever, it's important to know what our stress triggers are (the things that deplete our energy) and what rejuvenates us (the things that restore our energy). Modeling self-care for our students/children is paramount in helping them develop this skill for themselves.
