“Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become YOUR WORDS. Keep your words positive, because your words become YOUR BEHAVIOR.
Keep your behavior positive, because your behavior becomes YOUR HABITS. Keep your habits positive, because your habits become YOUR VALUES.
Keep your values positive, because your values become YOUR DESTINY.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Our First Listening Session – This Wednesday
Join members of the SEA Leadership Exec Team at Pop’s Pizza (817 E. Nerge Rd, Roselle) from 4:30-5:30 PM in our first of five listening sessions to gather some input from you. This month’s topic will be on ‘School Climate’. If you would like to attend this session, please let me know so that I can have an approximate count. We will have our own private room to meet in. Hope to see you then!
Importance of Self-Care
I was recently reading an article about self-care as I know it is something that we all need to make sure we are engaging in. Self-care should be daily and part of our routines, not just something we think about when we know we have a day off work, like next Monday. Set a self-care goal for yourself, whether it involves getting more sleep, exercise, or eating right. Maybe it is a simple as getting outside, reading a good book, or getting yourself organized. One of the best self-care tips I read was learning how to politely say no to others, and say yes to self-care. Trust me, I know saying NO is not easy, but if you are already feeling the stress of the new year, it is time to take care of yourself.
