#2 Find your zen

In the every-busy life of an educator, it can be hard to find time to grab lunch let allow let alone make time to meditate.  Yet, the benefits from doing so are immense!  Harvard Business Review tells us:

Studies have shown that an idle brain is more likely to come up with a new idea.  Yet, we often feel that we need more focus…give your mind the much needed space to think for the long term and big picture.

Not only that, but a recent study out of Wisconsin’s Center for Investigating Healthy Minds suggests:

When teachers practice mindfulness, students’ misbehavior and other stressors become like water off a duck’s back, allowing them to stay focused on what teachers really want to do: teach.

Pretty awesome right?
