Today during a staff meeting we were asked: What do you do to diminish stress? How do you take care of yourself?
Being a teacher In a high-stakes course with an acronymic test that students take in order to prove that their teacher if effective, I guffaw at the suggestion to “diminish stress.” Then I ask for chocolate.
How do I take care of myself? I could answer that in myriad ways. Sleep. Prayer. Friend time. Sleep. Tango. 31 Days blogging. Sleep. Prayer. Hope. Then I grab chocolate.
Every home should have a chocolate lab. Chocolate is the antithesis of stress.
