Dear Balanced Living Diary…

by | Balance for Educators

Do you ever have days when your internal weather report would be “gusty winds”, and you’re feeling like you’re the leaves falling from the trees and being blown all over the place?

(check out this video to see how one of my recent days like this went… click here!)

When this happens to me, it feels like those leaves flying around are like the thoughts in my mind swirling around from one thing to the next.

And I’m looking around at all of it wondering what I should do next.

I feel like I haven’t been spending very much time on any one individual task lately, but rather visiting a bunch of things really quickly.

Have you experienced something similar?

I know this isn’t productive for my well-being or my educator life.

I’m grateful that I have the tools to implement so that these strong winds can move into a gentle breeze and then turn into a sunny day, simply by…

→ Inviting myself to take a few deep breaths.

→ Feeling my feet on the floor.

→ Connecting with my breath, body, and mind so that I’m able to slow down and truly be in each present moment.

Instead of moving from one thing to the next so quickly. This allows me to more fully give my attention to the things I’m doing.

What’s your internal weather report like these days? What strategies do you use when your weather report gets a little stormy? Need help figuring it out? Book a complimentary call here and let’s chat.

Balanced Life Mentor for Educators

Hi, I’m Amy (she/her)!
•PA Teacher 20+ years•

I consider myself a teacher and student every single day. I empower educators with self-support tools so they can live their BEST life!

As a teacher myself, I’m especially passionate about serving educators and feel strongly that learning self-support strategies can benefit anyone at any stage of life. In mentoring educators, my goal is to cultivate a space of acceptance and comfort, offering the people I support permission to be themselves, trust themselves, and grow at their own pace.
