I have very few answers myself, but verbally processing this information with another person can be extremely helpful.

Please Practice Self Care

Learn to shine bright- the importance of self care for teachers. | Kelly Hopkinson | TEDxNorwichED

Quick Self Care Ideas

  • Use positive self-talk. Positive thinking can have a huge impact on our mental health and well-being. Work to recognize your more negative thoughts. Then, reframe them into more positive ones. Saying phrases like, “Today is going to be a great day,” and “This might be tough, but I can do it,” can help you through tough times.
  • Connect with uplifting colleagues. Find the teacher friends who will listen to you, encourage you, and lift you up. (I am here for you!)
  • Give yourself grace. Be kind to yourself! Recognize that you won’t always be perfect and that’s perfectly okay.

Have a great weekend!!
