Improve Your Mood with This 2-Minute Exercise"
Monday, October 22, 2012
I just read the dailySpark Entry "Improve Your Mood with This 2-Minute Exercise." I thought : 2 minutes I can do that. What I didn't anticipate was that this was an emotional exercise.
As work has been rather stressful lately, I realized that I've been on a bit of a grump binge when it comes to work. The article suggests listing 2-3 things that I'm grateful for. While I have plenty of gratefulness when it comes to home and family life, work is another situation.
Too many students, too many students with problems, too many deaths recently ( we lost a science teacher on Friday to cancer. Her battle was shockingly short.) Too many preps(4). Just a lot of work and not a lot of joy.
So...I am grateful to have a job in a field that I love. I am absolutely grateful for my 6th bell. Their enthusiasm is boundless. I am grateful for my dear department colleagues. We've been a great team for 14 years.
Tomorrow when I go to work- I will keep these in mind. Perhaps I can find a few more.
