Wellness Wednesday: Compassion for Ourselves

As educators who want students to save the world via their learning, we probably spend most of our time looking out for and taking care of others. We do them a favor, actually, when we take a few minutes to be good to ourselves. No matter how busy you are or how long your to do list, I hope this post will inspire you to take a few minutes for yourself today. During lunch, your planning period or this evening, take at least 10 minutes to:

  • take a walk
  • sit down, close your eyes, and breathe deeply
  • take a long, hot shower or bath
  • put on some music and either relax or dance
  • go to bed a few minutes early
