Don't confuse bad days as a sign of weakness (those are the days we're actually fighting the hardest) [Ep34]

If you're ever having a bad day, don't beat yourself up - listen to this episode, keep your chin up and keep moving forward!
As we well know, teaching is stressful. It’s stressful because there is always so much to do. The to do list will never be empty. We care deeply so we have an intrinsic desire to do a good job, which also adds stress. We deal with difficult people all day long, adults as well as kids. We are constantly running at a level 10 all day. We rarely stop for a break or to use the toilet all day long. No wonder we go home and collapse!? We are human and can only run on a level 10 for so long before our battery dies and we pass out. In this episode I share some of my top tips for relaxation that you can also use as a busy, stressed out teacher.
Teaching is a job where we are constantly on the go and oftentimes, mostly just reacting to our circumstances which can leave us feeling stressed out and frustrated. With this simple but effective technique that I share in today's episode, you can learn to think ahead and anticipate your days rather than just react to them leaving you feeling much more in control and empowered.
As teachers, we are so emotionally invested in our jobs that it can feel almost impossible to switch off our teacher brain and relax when we get home. This can create long term negative effects such as chronic stress and emotional exhaustion. In this episode, I share with you an effective way of how you reduce the amount of worry and stress you feel as a teacher and how you can train your brain to actually "switch off".
