Hello all!
So, I am very excited to finally have a real opportunity to connect with you all about self-care.

With the new “Live Conversation” feature on Fishbowl, we can now host conversations quicker and easier than before.

For the first conversation, I’d love to have an opportunity to introduce ourselves, then share with you my stance on the importance of teacher self-care.

Please join me in 15 minutes for “It Starts with You.”

4:15 PM Central Time

I work in a public school setting and am allergic to citrus. My district has stated that it is too much trouble to accommodate me. I carry an Epipen and have an anaphylaxis reaction to being exposed to citrus. My district is not accepting my doctor note. They think I am exaggerating and refuse to limit citrus fruits on my campus. An HR meeting concluded that I was required to work through it/use the emergency response team if I have “an issue”. Pls share if you have had a different experience

Thank you for having this bowl.

I need some advise. 2 years ago( when I turned 33) I realized my energy level is going down at a faster rate everyday then I have ever experienced. I had my doctor do yearly different tests and everything is normal. I try to work out at least 2 times a week and take vitamins D and B12. I am getting fatigue and feeling weak, unable to accomplish my tasks sometimes (not depressed). I am losing the sense of consistency. Anything anybody would recommend to do or take?

I’m concerned about the surge in omicron. I packed everything, just in case. Q2 is ending, a new quarter is starting. We get new kids each quarter as a Specials teacher.
It’s stressful at quarter changeovers.
In going back after break, it’s too much of a contrast. I cannot sleep, I wake up in the middle of the night, “for the day”, about 6 nights a week. To stay structured, I go to “Surrender yoga” daily. I’m good to go do 1 more thing after yoga. I feel accomplished. Couching causes anxiety.

Tonight is hard because tomorrow I will be attending a funeral for a former student. He died by suicide.

5 years ago I read him Magic Treehouse books.

I remember how excited he was to meet his behavior goal for the first time.

I was hoping to see him in 2 years at the HS.

Yoga nidra is my new favorite self care. I sleep deeper, and it doesn't deplete my precious energy. No side effects or injuries, either.

I love Mindful Movement on YouTube, and she has a yoga nidra vid. Audible also has some, I love Dare to Rest by Karen Brody, and the free one Practical Yoga Nidra by Scott Moore is good too.
