"Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today."

Fill Your Cup

As we finish this first grading period and head into the holiday months, remember to take care of yourself too. No matter your job, your hours, or your home life, there are stressors.


What does self-care really mean? Self-care is filling your cup before it’s empty so that you have enough to give. There is a reason that we call it “practicing” self-care, as it takes practice. Self-care is really about changing the way that you go about your day in order to take care of yourself. Self-care includes giving yourself time to do the things you enjoy, and planning ahead, so you don’t feel as stressed or rushed. Sometimes it’s going for a walk or leaving work on time, and other days, it is simply giving yourself a 15-minute brain break. Finally, it’s important to have fun. After all, laughter is the best medicine. Surround yourself with people who make you happy and plan activities that brighten your day.


By taking care of yourself, you will become more resilient when challenges arise. Author Jamais Cascio wrote, “Resilience is all about being able to overcome the unexpected. Sustainability is about survival. The goal of resilience is to thrive.” Hopefully these self-care practices are ones that you can carry forward, so you can continue pouring energy into what you love.


Take care,

Kelly
