How Do You Refuel?
MY PERSONAL WELLNESS PROGRAM
I call it a program because it means it is a routine and part of my life that is a priority. Having 4 kids and a busy husband means I have to work hard at balancing my life and also protecting those 'times' for myself. So here it what I aim for each week and I am happy if I can do 80% of it and alternate activities. As I get older, I am recognising that 80% completion is brilliant :)
Every morning I have a cup of pepperment & green tea before I eat or doing anything.
Most nights I read. I am constantly seeking to learn new things that make me a better teacher, better mum, better human! Whether I read for 5 minutes or an hour, I read most nights.
Something I want to do more of... road trips! Short adventures that are spontaneous and fun.
Keep my nightly planner on my bedside table so I can write down my thoughts and get them out of head so I can sleep... and trust I won't forget it xxx
What better way to turn the brain off than to be distracted by reality TV or television series or documentaries, each week. I combine this with my kids one night per week!!!
Hanging out with my teacher besties, chatting with an old friend, date with hubby, phone date with my bestie or time with my kids... I always make time for connecting with an important relationship to me!
I do 20 minutes of exercise if I have had a day of inactivity. I do it at the end of the day before dinner.
Start each day driving in the car with my favourite songs complete with air guitar and vocal back up... yes I am that embarrassing mum :)
Family games... charades, singstar, hide and seek, bopit, cluedo etc.. make me laugh and fill up my tank!
One of my FAVOURITE things is my bath time... one night per week just for me to relax
Refueling your inspiration tank, your soul and your energy levels as a teacher is such an important part of your #teacherlife that I think many teachers forget. It is vital in the longevity of your career because the teaching profession requires an exetremely high level of 'give' and teachers naturally never turn off (even though we say we do, we don't). PLEASE.... make sure you plan for your #teacherwellness
