Invention Convention is done! Goodness, it sure took a number out of me. With all these moving parts, it’s pretty stressful. However, it’s over now and I can rest easy. Just need to finish marking them.
A decent workout this morning felt like I was able to keep pace. I was dehydrated and it kept my heart rate up. Still was able to push through. I need to get some review of new exercises though. I feel like in my fatigued state, I just go for what I know and is fairly easy. It’s something to work on.
One thing I learned: I learned to let things go. Complaining about kids parents doing the work was really counterproductive. Nothing is being done about it. I need to take a more positive approach in the future. I recognize that perhaps fatigue had something to do with it, but mindfulness can help. Take some deep breathes and have a short walk.
One piece of motivation: Human patience is really a fuel. It can be drained and refilled, but is in limited stalk. Students who drain it need to be managed. Taking a calming approach can help. As mentioned above, keep mindfulness as a priority when dealing with stress. It can help!
Three ideas: I’ve been feeling demotivated or the ‘resistance’ affecting me. I think it’s just battle fatigue and I should focus on what is actually causing the distress. Now that the major projects are over and the warm weather and sunshine is ahead, I’m thinking that taking a mindful approach to life can help. Just relax and enjoy the journey!
