Healthy work habits is a topic near and dear to my heart. When Angela Watson asked me to read her new book, Unshakeable, and write about one of the chapters, Establishing Healthy Habits for Brining Work Home and Decompressing was a no-brainer.
When it comes to your work habits, it’s often hard to “win” no matter what you do. It seems you get the side-eye whether you’re the first to leave after the dismissal bell or the last car in the parking lot each night. You either care too much or not enough, judged by the size of your “teacher bag” each evening. You know… the one you often take home full of papers to grade and then back to school the next morning without touching anything inside. Let’s face it, some nights mine didn’t even make it out of the car. Other nights that same teacher bag felt like a ball and chain, and I’d sit for hours with a pen glued in my hand grading papers, begging my husband to help with the math fact sheets. So.much.stress.
