reading, yoga, long walks/drives, being in complete silence to just tune everything out for a few.

I like to do some deep breathing work, cuddle my dogs, and go for a walk. I like to do some reading that is not involved with any of my school studies. Listening to music is always nice, especially when I am cleaning. Sometimes cleaning is a stress reliever for me.

I find that meditation, exercise, and time with my own children is helpful.

Listening to music, watching my favorite show, deep breathing, and spending time with friends/family

I like to use my breaks to take time outside and decompress. I often also listen to music while I’m outside. I think deep, intentional breathing is helpful. All of these things are helpful to refresh and feel ready to come back into the school environment and be my best self in the classroom.

Deep breathing is great. I try to find a reason to laugh or find a happy memory.

I absolutely love my job and am excited for every day. But there are days when I leave work stressed and upset because I got overwhelmed. I do what I do for any stressful event in my life and I put my running shoes on and I just go run until all the stress is out of my body and I feel new again. If that doesn’t work I run until I’m tired and then I go to my favorite park and just lay there until my body is calm and my brain is also calm. After I feel less stressed and overwhelmed I head home and take a warm shower and do some self care time to get my body ready and relaxed to start the next day.

Working with children is very rewarding and very emotional work. Are there any techniques you’ve found to release stress?
- Taking time for myself
- Setting work / personal life boundary
- Breathing / meditation
- Nighttime routine

Taking some time for myself after my shift. Call my boyfriend for some release. Swim. Talk to my boss after work and just check in. Taking lots of deep breaths and being very patient.

I listen to music and write, I read during my lunch breaks and doodle. I plan an after work tea and reading time everyday to unwind everyday so I always have something to look forward to that keeps me so happily grounded. At work during hard moments I take deep breaths and just sit down to take moment to reflect. I hum and continue to count until I can respond best.

Having an emotionally supportive network is an important aspect of this but, personally, I like to spend time alone when I’m handling stress. Being in a peaceful, natural setting and burning some energy help me feel calm and release tension. Long hikes and paddle boarding are my two favorites.

Giving them hug to show they are cared. Turning on some relaxing music can sometimes help.
