Leaving Work at Work

Do you ever get so caught up in work that you wonder where your day went? You say, "I can't wait to read my new book tonight" or "I'll put that puzzle together soon" but you never do? I was feeling that way last semester. After the new year, one of my goals was to set a time limit for myself with work.

Now, you could be thinking, how can I do that? There is NO way I can possibly get everything done that I need to and teach at the same time. I thought so too. But after two weeks of setting my new time limit, I can tell you that it can be done.

My one little word for this year is happiness, which means happiness in all areas of my life. I felt that I was missing out on the happiness of coming home from work each day and spending time with family or doing my hobbies.

There are so many things that I like to do:

I like to cook!

I like to play games!

I like to color!

I love puzzles! 

Now with my new time limit of 5:30 every day (with some exceptions) I have been able to be more productive at work and then more relaxed at home! WIN WIN!!

Teachers should always remember to care for themselves. Then, and only then, can they take care of others.

  1. I am really loved to see such post because now-a-days, in most part of the world, the people are not willing to spend their time in such mind relaxing activities, as all are running behind the money, most of the time, they are in a tensed mood. Even in my research paper writing service office, i could see so many people who are all working for so many months continuously at a stretch by staying in the office, on seeing such people i will think in what ways, they will enjoy the money which has been earned by putting such hard work.
