How to Save Your Teacher Sanity During the Holiday Season

How to Save Your Sanity During the Holiday Season

Happy holiday season everyone! I have to give a huggggeeee shout out to Amanda Cardenas from Mud and Ink Teaching for hosting this 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway and fabulous blog hop!  I hope you have been checking out all the fabulous blogs, tips and tricks in surviving this holiday season as well as entering all the AMAZZZZING giveaways.

Let's get to it. I find the holiday season to be very stressful.  Between working full time, running around, decorating, Christmas cards, being a mom, shopping and ordering presents, some days I want to pull my hair out! However, I have very nifty ways of saving my sanity (and hopefully yours) in and out of the classroom.

1.  Starbucks & Caffeine-

Thank goodness that I have this coffee shop a minute from my house.  I can pull out of my driveway, and in a quick minute be at this great coffee shop to pick up my favorite holiday drink: Peppermint Latte.  Have you tried this delicious drink? If you haven't, you definitely need to try it.  It has the refreshing, warm taste of the season, and it is extremely relaxing.

2.  A Nice Hot Bath with my Favorite Bubble Bath:

One of may favorite ways to destress is to take a nice, hot bath with my favorite bubble bath from Deep Steep.  I have tried a few of their products and bubble bath products, and all of them are scrumptious and relaxing. First, they smell incredible. Secondly, the bubble bath leaves your body feeling refreshed. I loveeee the lavender bubble bath, as well as the mint one.  You definitely have to check them out.

3.  A Comfy Body Pillow-

One of essential destress activities is to curl up with a good book; however, have you curled up with a good book and an amazing body pillow?  Talk about total relaxation.  I actually got my body pillow from BJ's/Sam's Club.  Though you cannot buy the body pillow online, it is currently in stores, and it is only $14.99!  Here is the link. I would definitely get yourself one of these goodies if you live by one of these stores.  If not, Amazon offers them for very reasonable prices.

4.  A Fantastic Playlist-

Now I know that our taste in music differs, but I do know everyone does love a soothing, calming playlist.  I have a 1/2 hour drive to work every day, and for me, this is my relaxation sometimes.  I have a chance to regroup, think, and all the rest.  This is when I put on some music that completely puts me in the zone.  I throw on Pandora, and if you want an awesome station, check out Ron Pope.  All the artists that are linked to this station are fantastic.

5.  Friends & Family:

One of my guarenteed stress relievers is spending time with my friends and family.  My friends and I already have a date planned during the holiday break, so we can let loose, drink a glass of wine, laugh and relax.  We know laughter is the best medicine, and friends have the ability to make you do just that over and over!  Right now, text or call your friends, and make a date for sometime over the vacation. Believe me. You won't regret it.

Have a wonderful and healthy holiday.  I wish you all the best! Thank you so much for reading my post, and I hope you check out all the wonderful posts on our website! For the 10th day of December, I am teamed up with Two Peas and a Dog.  Hop on over right here!
