No matter how happy you try to stay on a daily basis, you will always have those days that you just don’t feel like yourself. You’re in a funk. You’re just feeling bad for no apparent reason. These days are dreaded as teachers, because they lead to very limited productivity…and we can’t afford to have too many of those!
My advice is simple: Find something quick and easy that gets your mind off of school and refocuses you. Sometimes, a quick diversion doing something you enjoy is all you need. If you’re a sports nut, browse ESPN.com for a while. If you like musicals, watch a clip from one of your favorites. For every other interest, head over to Pinterest.
My suggestion is Sporcle. Sporcle is a collection of online quizzes (well, not quizzes exactly…more like games) that run the gamut of topics. You can spend just a few minutes on one of them, but they’re mentally stimulating and so much fun. Enjoy!
