Ditch the lists. Scratch the plans. Open up a new page and start your year fresh. You give (and give and GIVE!) all day to others; this year give back to yourself and watch the changes unfold. Studies show that just five minutes of morning mediation, reflection or prayer can make or break your day. Before you look at your phone or computer screen in the early waking hours, stop and find a time to reflect on your upcoming day. You WILL set the pace and have a drastically different day in the classroom and in your personal life. Do it daily and watch how your children respond and behave towards their new stronger, focussed, even more dynamic teacher.
Pick a style in line with your belief system. For starters, check out Amazon’s top picks for morning moments http://tinyurl.com/aeuavmu or, for Christian-based morning moments, http://tinyurl.com/agfx7ob or many more that will work for you. After all, you can’t be The Worlds’ Greatest Preschool Teacher unless you take time OUT of the classroom to focus on yourself!
Here’s to your best year yet and continued success of your home-based or center-based child care business!
