Today I am struggling to write this post. I can't seem to settle on a topic, as my brain jumps from topic to topic. I haven't been able to turn off my thoughts today, even after working out.... my brain just keeps running through the ever-growing list of things to do. I even dreamed about school, it was a nightmare....I had to teach math! (I only teach reading/writing/social studies) I tried creating a to-do list, but I keep adding more before I can check one off. I know that I am not alone in this issue. It is a safe bet that the majority of my education colleagues, and many others, are struggling to turn off their brains and relax.
So, today I am going to force myself to read a silly book, or watch a silly movie. Maybe I will just sit here and watch Netflix all day. That whole Netflix and Chill thing.... I can find a show and practice that. I could get some crayons and color. Maybe I can write in a journal or start writing something more than a journal. The options are endless except now I have a new series of thoughts running through my head. Maybe I need another list?
No, I need balance. We all need balance in our lives, more so now than ever. So today, I am going to practice achieving some balance. I will mark a few things off my list, hang with my family and enjoy the day. Positivity and balance will be my two goals today.
