This past weekend I was running around with a chicken with my head cut off, as one does on a day when EVERYTHING is scheduled, and it donned on my that summer is half-way over for most teachers. I don’t know why, but a sense of horror washed over me. It occurred to me, that for the most part I am still in teacher mode. I have still been pouring over Pinterest, thinking about curriculum, and wondering about my students. While I don’t think there is anything I can do about that last one, the first two have to stop, if even just for a few days.
So here is my game plan to refresh myself. I would love to hear below what you do to make sure that you are relaxed and refreshed over the summer!
Do Something Just for You
This is another one that means something different to everyone. For me this means taking a nap whenever I want, going to the library and checking out books that I have been meaning to read for months, or marathoning a terrible show on Netflix. These may sound like terrible ideas to you, but that is exactly the point! This one is just for you. You get to do what you want!
You’ve heard my plan! Now what is your plan to make sure that you are feeling refreshed this summer?
