Let's face it, as teachers, there are going to be days where the stress gets to be too much. Luckily, I have found ways to relax and unwind after days such as these.
1. Driving home with the radio off. This is really hard for me to do! I listen to the radio all.the.time. I may even occasionally sing along (come on - so do you!) But, there are some days where my head needs a break from noise. There is a lot of noise in a kindergarten classroom. Sometimes, a quiet drive home is all it takes for me to relax.
2. Family. I love coming home to enjoy their company. They always lift my spirits when I'm down.
4. Playing with our family dog (an English mini goldendoodle). Is there anything better than coming home to a waging tail that belongs to a happy pup? Nope!
5. Laying down on my bed and reading a good book. I love being able to escape into another world. It definitely calms me down when things get to hectic.
So... what do you do after a long stressful day at work?
