Spring break is days away. I am obviously counting the minutes. I am looking forward to time with my people, some yoga and jellybeans. I wanted to post and wish you a great holiday weekend, long weekend or spring break. I have no plan for this break which is so unlike me. I am really trying to turn my capital type A into maybe a lowercase a (fingers crossed). After this holiday weekend is over I will have a week…one glorious week to try to rest, relax and rejuvenate.
Self care is a new hot term. I am not sure yet if I like the term, but I love the idea. Many of us are running from here to there, taking care of many and forgetting about ourselves, so maybe this is a perfect opportunity to do a little of this self care…..or what ever you want to call it….R&R…me time.
As I was driving between schools today I was trying to think of things that could provide me with a much needed reboot. I love my job, but winter wore me down this year. Maybe it is being another year older or it was just long and salty. Time to put the pep back in my step! Here are a few things I was rolling around:
- Take a nap
- Sleep in
- Good to bed early (huge for me-total night owl)
- Take a break from my phone and computer…baby steps
- Drive less
- Binge watch a new show-thank you Netflix
- Craft something
- Spend time with my peeps
- Take a bath
- Bake-gluten free of course
- Go to the movies-popcorn of course
- Get ice cream
- Dinner with friends
- Girl time
- Date night
- Book store
- Shopping….could be dangerous, especially if the cart is red
- Hair mask
- Purge something….this is not cleaning. Purging cleanses the soul!
- Take a road trip-seeing a new part of the world does wonders
- Talk a walk
Well my count down has begun. Two more days of bunnies infused in my lesson plans….which I love. I put together a spring eraser kit to play games that is beyond cute. Using erasers as manipulatives is a fairly new things for me and I love putting sets together. I’ll save that for a future post!
I really wish you wonderful, well deserved time off. If you have the time comment or share what your plans are. Maybe what you did with your time off. Hippity hoppity break is days away!!!
