March Madness ...

“Let him sleep, for when he wakes, he will move mountains”  ~ unknown

March is typically one of the longest teaching months.  However, in light of recent events, many educators across the world have been forced to take a step back.  Although not ideal, this respite has put many things into perspective. 
I had the opportunity to read up on rest and what is most effective.  I’ve learned that there are several types of rest.  Among them are:
~ Taking time away
~Allowing yourself permission not to be helpful
~Doing something unproductive
~Connecting to art and nature
~Recharging in solitude
~Breaking away from responsibility
~Decompressing in stillness
~Creating a safe space
~Preserving alone time at home

During this time away from the building, develop a new way to look at rest and the art of relaxation. You deserve the quiet moments.  When you return, you can and will move that “mountain” but for now, take it bit by bit, stone by stone.
