“Feeling Sad” can make you feel Overwhelmed and Frustrated. You Don’t Have To Feel Like This.

Feeling sad at one-point or another in our lives is quite normal. However, if we allow these feelings to take over our thoughts and derail us from our day-to-day life–it’s can cause a big disruption in our normal lives and mental health.

Women can ofen times feel 10 times more sad/anxiety when trying to deal with a busy work schedule, chilrend and family responsibilities. This “super woman” syndrome can cause us to feel overwhelmed on top of dealing with the normal “unexpected” situation that can show up in our daily lives.

Use 4 Helpful Mental Health Strategies to help you “feel better” during a rough time in your life.  It Won’t Last Forever.

1. Write-it Out.

Write down all your feeling, thoughts, and fears freely–not holding back or limiting yourself from addressing any problem. Keep a journal to reflect on your feelings.

2. Talk-it Out.

Call up a trusted friend, family member, therapist or life coach. Talk as openly as you feel comfortable with about what’s bothering you. Together you can come up with some actions to cope and “feel better”.

3. Exercise-it Out.

Moving your body and excercing is know to be beneficial in removing and exerting “negative” energy that can get stuck in the body. Once released–this can help you to feel better emotionally and physically.

4. Eat-it Out.

This may sound weird at first. Yet, eating an overall “wholesome” diet of Fruits & vegetables have been proven to improve how you think and feel. Some foods that may help you “improve your mental health” are cashews, almonds, green tea and strawberries.

I promise you these “sad feelings” won’t last forever. If you find that you just can’t deal with it, be sure to contact your doctor or therapist who can help you get on a plan to get back on course. So you can move on with your Life as quickly as possible–Happily!

Summer is approaching and most of us are going to be doing some travelling at one point or another–places to go and things to see. Most of us Love to Travel! Yet, it’s important to stay healthy on are travels.

Airports and airplanes are known to harbor germs–with the thousands of people going back and forth each day. It’s best to take some simple precautions to stay nice and healthy during your travels. Here’s 5 Ways to Stay Healthy while travelling on a Airplane.

1. Vitamin C.

Vitamin C will boost your immune system to help your body combat any germs or viruses you may come in contact with while travelling. I would start increasing my Vitamin C intake about 3 days prior to travelling.

I love these Uncle Matt packets.

2. Drink a lot of Water.

Staying hydrated and drinking a lot of water will help your body  to flush out any toxins and viruses that may enter your body.

3. Hand Sanitizer.

Keep your hands clean and moisturized. Before you eat, drink or touch your face or body spray your hands with hand sanitizer.

I love these Clean Well easy carry spray hand sanitizer–all you need is 1 spray, fits perfectly in your carry on bag. 

4. Ear Plugs.

The loud sounds and air pressure of the plane taking off, landing and in flight can cause your ear pain and discomfort. Use ear plugs to help protect your ears.

I always find chewing a piece of gum or eating a piece of candy in-flight and after landing helps to ease ease ear pressure and discomfort. 

5. Stay Warm.

If you don’t like it cold (and your body doesn’t do well with cold air blowing down on you), you need to bring along a comfy sweater, shawl or a blanket. Airport and planes are cold to prevent germs and viruses from breeding.

I also like to bring a pair of inexpensive socks to keep my feet warm–that I throw away after my travel. Also, be sure to wash all “travel clothes” in warm/hot soapy water as soon as you arrive at your destination.

Happy Travels!

I’ve been an Elementary Teacher for over 10 years now. Teachers work hard! It’s a rewarding career; however, it can lead to “burnout” especially, if you don’t practice self care. You may be wondering–how can you practice self-care? You feel your time is scarce enough as it is. It’s essential to yourself to take care of YOU to be the Best Educator for your students. Here’s 10 Ways Teachers Can Practice Self Care this School Year (that can be easily incorporated into your day)!

1.  Stay out the school’s Vending Machine.

Instead of reaching for high sugary treats in the teacher’s lounge or the school’s vending machine.  Try whole fruits, nuts and fruit snacks that will give you energy.

2.  Drink Less Coffee.

Before that morning cup of coffee, make sure to fill up on water in the morning and throughout the day to stay hydrated and fueled.

3.  Take a After-School Nap.

A 20 minute nap after school is idea to rejuvenate your energy to continue working at home.

4.  Treat Yo’Self.

Your budget may be tight–It’s okay to treat yo’self sometimes. Buy yourself a giftcard to your favorite cafe, coffee shop or spa for those days you need a little extra love.

5.  Don’t be afraid to say “No”.

Yes, they will ask! You don’t have to volunteer and stay for every school function. Don’t be afraid to say “No, thank you”–and ask for help when you need to.

6.  Move Your Body.

A daily workout routine will help release all the stress that can build up in the body from the daily demands of teaching. If the weekdays are too busy, try working out on the weekends.

7.  Set Work Life Balance.

Teachers to-do list seems to never end. However, it is really important to set a healthy work life balance to prevent “teacher burnout’. Decide on what teaching responsibilities you are willing to take home and how much time you’re able to give to “working at home”.

8. No Gossiping or Complaining.

The teacher’s lounge can be full with many  “complaints”. Yes, there are many demands that come with teaching that cause one the need to express concern(s). However, Gossiping and complaining will only drain your positive energy. Instead voice your concerns respectfully to the proper school authority.

9. Prayer, affirmation and meditation.

I find this to be very helpful; especially on those Monday Mornings! Creating a Daily Morning Prayer, Affirmation and meditation Routine is essential for maintaining peace, balance and serenity.

10.  Sharpen Your Teaching Skills.

Instead of waiting for  “mandatory” professional development. Seek training that most interest you, will benefit your students; and make your school day flow easier.
