SLEEP - go to bed "early" once a week
This may be different for everyone. "Early" for Steph is 9:00 pm. "Early" for Sean is 11:00pm. Strive to catch up on sleep and let your body rest at least one day a week whatever your "early" is!
DAY OFF - plan one day off a week
Choose one day a week to dedicate to non-work things outside of school hours! No work at all! No planning, working on materials, etc. If you are really ambitious, do not even check your work e-mail!
EAT 3 MEALS DAY - eat breakfast and lunch every work day
This one is tough for both of us. We often skip meals because things are rushed in the morning or because we are busy working through the lunch hour planning, or running extra-curricular groups. Eating breakfast and lunch is so important and we need to remember that!
MAKE TIME FOR FUN - put one day (at least!) aside to do something fun
Whether it is reading a book, having a glass of wine with a friend, going to a movie, or spending time at a park with family, make time for fun at least once a week (preferably more!)!
EXERCISE - plan to do some physical activity during the week
Exercise does wonders for our mental health. Going for walks, or going to the gym on a regular basis (1-4 times a week) will be part of our goals this year!
What are your goals for the year?
