I've started incorporating mid-day walks into my work schedule which really helps clear my mind. I find that I make fewer mistakes in the afternoon when I do this. I try to listen to a podcast or music while I walk so that my mind doesn't wander to work stuff!!

not absent-mindedly checking emails has been a game changer for me. it used to be a reflex for me to open the email app every few hours, but I would always end up seeing something I didn't want to see and then spend the rest of my day off worrying. now, if I'm not working, I don't look!

Im starting a new job but still employed somewhere else. I was trying to be open about staying at BOTH places. My current job won’t let me be part time because they don’t allow “set schedules”. Yet I am one of the only reliable and loyal employees in the department, and currently working a set schedule. So why will they not let me continue a set schedule but with different hours? This place is more focused on strict policies and not actually trying to work their employees and being flexible.

Teaching has taken over so much. I’m a wife and mother and still have a home life, but there is nothing outside of work and home. I have no friends, no other activities, no escape. Covid restrictions do not help. I know it’s not healthy to only focus on everyone else, but I’m not sure what to do about it. I have only sporadic time opportunities and I don’t even know what I enjoy doing anymore. When trying to do other stuff I can’t turn off mom or teacher brain.
