Help Your Students Find Positivity in Each Day
I had a rough week last week. After six weeks of being quarantined, I had a severe case of BLAH.
What I realized was this:
- I wasn’t taking care of myself and my mindset. I needed a positivity boost.
- If I’m struggling with this, so many others, including my students, must be also.
What I did for myself was to take a day to rest and reset my mind. I exercised, I talked to friends (on the phone), I read, I painted my nails, all the things.
But the next day I honestly didn’t feel any better. On the second day, I opened my daily mindset journal, my Make Today Matter journal that I’d been keeping each day at school for myself and with my students, and I wrote. I wrote about what I’m grateful for, my goals for the day, and my successes. And just like it had made such a big difference in our positivity in the classroom, it made a big difference for me here at home too!
I’ve added it to my Distance Learning Google Classroom for my students now also. Because like I said in realization #2 above, if I’m feeling this way, I’m sure my students and everyone else are also. Because if ten minutes could make such a big difference for my mindset, I’m sure it will do the same for my students.
Maybe it could also do the same for your students. We could all use a little extra sense of joy and sunshine in our day! Grab your copy here!
