Ever wish you could just flip the off switch on your buzzing Teacher Brain and be a little more present and in tune with the rest of your life outside of teaching?
Well, you are not the only one...trust me.
Sometimes we think way too much about school when we’re not even there. When I’m at home, there are times when I find myself thinking about my students and anything coaching related. And then I have to tell myself, “STOP THAT!” But telling myself to stop doesn’t always work. Sometimes I have to “change the tracks of my brain”. 🧠🧠🧠
So what do I mean by “change the tracks of your brain?”
What I want you to do is substitute another distracting activity so that your brain has the chance to change tracks a bit before going home. Make your brain completely SHIFT to something unrelated to what you’re thinking about at that time. You might be the kind of person that can fully decompress on the car ride home from school. And that’s totally fine for you. You can walk into your front door and be fully present, with no leftover ideas or frustrations buzzing around in your head. But if the car ride home isn’t enough, or you find yourself actually get more and more ramped up as you drive home, then try one of these: 👉👉
You got this!!! But just in case, here’s 7 more ways you can turn off that teacher brain so you can enjoy your family, your friends, and have a little more YOU time.
If you are like…“Amen sister”... I need to find a way to shut off all those buzzing ideas rolling around in my head about school, tuck that teacher bag away in a corner, lock the door, and forget about it; then come and join me on Facebook and let’s work TOGETHER to turn off that teacher brain!!!
See you over on Facebook.
