Do you ever feel guilty when you are relaxing at home? Does your ever-growing to-do list haunt you?
You're not alone.
If you are a teacher you know that there is always more to do. Early on in my career, a colleague advised me to rest and take care of myself. When I take that advice it always pays off.
When I exit the school building I visualize leaving the stressors of the day behind. I keep a list and prioritize what's most important. Do all you can while at school and then practice letting it go. I think it gets easier over time.
Your intentions matter. Your effort matters. Your personal well-being matters.
