What with all of the demands placed upon us as teachers, does anyone ever think you may be taking it all too seriously to the extent you neglect taking care of yourself? I know this happens to me quite frequently. Sometimes I have to draw back and actually take a day or a weekend (rarely) off and regroup to make myself think about something else. I find when I do this, I'm not only more energized, but am saner when I get back to it. Just one day in a different environment besides home or school helps tremendously. If I can't travel, sometimes I just do a Saturday movie marathon and escape that way. What do you do to regroup and take care of yourself?
