Every Sunday (hopefully) I shall be posting a personal post about my life as a primary school teacher. I currently work at a primary school teaching Year 2 (6-7 year olds). My training posts on this subject were really successful and so therapeutic for me, therefore I’ve decided to continue posting on the topic. I will not be naming any children, or the school where I work. If personal posts aren’t your thing then feel free to skip these posts. I won’t mind! Bookish goodness returns as normal Monday-Saturday!
I don’t know where to start with this blog post really, as nothing much has happened this week! I’m sure I’ll have a lot of moaning to do next week as we are four working days away from the dreaded SATS tests. Urgh. Will I ever have a rant about them! Stay tuned for that! 😉
I’ve had three no work weekends in a row and I’m loving it. Being the organised person I am, it has been hard not to do work, but I think I’ve needed to do that. I’m not having the best time at work at the moment, so I’m trying to be good to myself and keep the weekends for relaxing, reading and blogging!
I downloaded the app Fit 2 Teach a few months back and I’ve been using it daily ever since. Basically, you answer questions such as ‘Did you take at least 30 mins of me time today? and It gives you a score which is coloured red, amber or green for your day.
I’ve been using it to track my work-life balance. If I have too many red days in a week, I tend to have a no-work weekend. I love it because it’s been really great to analyse my day and think about how I can put little changes in to help me have a healthier balance and look after me. This post is NOT sponsored at all. I just love the app and thank it for improving my wellbeing!
