We’ve all had hurtful or upsetting incidents with colleagues, parents, and students that we can’t seem to move past.

  • How do you change your thinking in order to move on?
  • How do you stop carrying around the weight of what happened

Folks in our Truth for Teachers Podcast Community were invited to submit their situations anonymously, and tell me about the stuff that they just can’t move past.

We’re tackling unfair accusations, stressful interactions with students, and attacks on the teaching profession.

I’m sharing some thought work practice that can help you get over negative situations so you no longer feel as anxious or upset about them.

If you’re just not over it and can’t let it go … here’s a collection of mental reframing approaches to try.

I first started this podcast back in 2015, and nearly 300 episodes later, I’m proud to say there’s a wealth of helpful information available to you.

But… you don’t have time to listen to 300 episodes.

How do you know you didn’t miss out on something great awhile back?

What if there’s something you need to hear NOW that I haven’t talked about in awhile?

What if you were able to have a 3 day weekend EVERY week? Obviously you still need to show up to school 5 days a week and give your best each day.

But you can shift your perception of how the week is structured to maximize time for rest and recovery. Listen as I share:

  • How all days/hours are not experienced equally (some are more valuable for specific purposes, some feel longer and other shorter)
  • Why weekends feel too short, and how beginning them sooner is a better solution than stretching them out longer
  • How to approach your time each day of the week to get your most productive work done before the “long weekend” and truly relax on your time off

This episode is a playful approach to mindset. Experiment with how you use your time so that you can have more time for everything that matters most!

This short, encouraging episode explains how you can tackle really difficult problems using layers of imperfect solutions, rather than giving up doing anything altogether.

This approach is used in healthcare, aviation safety, computer security, and more…why not uncover a real place for it in K-12 education, as well?

We can work to create positive change in our schools, communities, nation, and planet if we think in terms of multiple layered solutions, rather than waiting for that one big perfect thing that fixes it all forever.
