Stress Free Giveaway!

I love spring for the most part. Outside the sun is shining, temperatures are rising, and things are starting to green up. Spring is one of my favorite seasons, but when it comes to school it's also one of the more stressful times of the year. Between state testing, wrapping up the school year, and working with a wonky schedule it's easy to get stressed out and lose the joy in my job. That's where this linky comes into play: tips and tricks to reduce stress, finish the year strong, and even a chance to win a few fun items along the way. Be sure to check out all of the posts for some truly wonderful ideas!

Here are a few of the ways I try to eliminate/deal with stress:

My day goes much better if a start if off with time for prayer and a short devotional. It just gets me in the right mindset. You may have to wake up a little earlier, or prep things the day before (lunch, outfit, etc.) to have the time, but even 5 minutes of quiet time can really help.

My first year of teaching especially, having a support system was HUGE. There was a group of teachers and their spouses that my husband and I were able to connect with. Often a monthly TGIF would occur, more often as the end of the year craziness occurred. A time to share the frustrations and fun as well as a few laughs throughout the evening.

Have an activity that's fun for you to do and do it. For me, I enjoy being outdoors, reading, crafting, taking pictures. I don't always make enough time to do as much as I'd like to, but it sure is enjoyable and a stress relief when I do! 

During my drive to and from school, I usually crank up the music. I enjoy several different genres so depending on my mood/day there can be quite the assortment of music to be heard from my car. Depending on the song I can get pumped up for the day or chill out a bit too.

Now that baby girl is here I LOVE to spend time having snuggles with her. Relaxing with my husband and daughter, taking a walk with the dog, going out for a cruise in the country. Each are little ways that I find joy in my day and I make sure to make time each day for these joy filled moments.
