Work-life balance is a unicorn
Updated: Jun 16, 2022
Is there such a thing as work/life balance? Kerry Graham and I discuss the importance of setting boundaries around our time. We are discussing the importance of setting boundaries as a new teacher in your career. Just like our students, we are whole people - we are more than our careers as teachers. During this episode, Kerry shares her teaching story and tips to help us start setting boundaries as teachers. Here we go!
We discuss burnout - what it is and how to work through it.
What does it mean to be you as a whole person? What are some other aspects of your life?
We have other passions in our lives - pursue them!
Think about your why and how does this "yes" support your why
Be kind to yourself and why you are saying "yes."
If you are saying yes to one thing, you are saying "no" to something else.
Is this something you will want to be doing during that time - how is your future self feel about this commitment?
Protect your time!
