I guess I am that kind of a person who cannot settle. I just have to do something different all the time.
I hate routines...
Don't get me wrong. I love my job. I love all my jobs actually. And they are all teaching-related.
I used to work at a language school - swapped to private tutoring --> online teaching --> spinning instructing at a gym --> translating --> content creating --> teacher training --> yoga instructing...
Not a surprise actually...
Back when I did not have a steady job, I spent most of my days at the gym.
It's not like I'm super fit anymore, but still I love movement.
And yoga is something that helps me relax and concentrate anyway.
And you know what? This is something we teachers could use ourselves. Teaching can be stressful.
Knowing how to breathe and meditate can help keep a balance and concentration.
Every morning before I actually go to the office I start with light stretching and breathing (hatha yoga wonderful choice).
During a stressful situation I try calm.com wherever I am, even for 30 seconds. It helps....
Trying breathing and concentration techniques with your students could also help let some steam off and feel more relaxed after a stressful day at school.
