1- Celebrate Life Pose: Yes, I made that up-but it helps me turn a stressful or negative day into a celebration of something good. Take a walk at lunch, on the weekend, in the mall and then celebrate that moment of peace you've just experienced. Hold the thought and keep a picture of it to help you get through the week.
2- Wake Me Up Pose:
Downward facing dog as part of the sun salutation series is a wonderful way to wake up each morning. I do it daily!
3-Ahhh! Pose: I'm working on some new yoga poses. This one is great for digestion, neck and shoulder tightness, and balance. It really get's the blood flowing! I usually can't do it in the morning, so I try to add it into my stretching routine at the end of the day.
It begins here-
and goes here-
Most of all, I try to stretch and get calm inside before heading to work-
and at the end of the day to bring stress levels back to 0.
This one strategy makes such a difference in my ability to keep teacher stress levels back to 0 every day.
I hope you find some inspiration from these pictures to help you deal with your "teacher" stress.
