Avoid Burnout Tip – Coping With Crisis
I don’t think it’s any great secret – in fact, it’s common knowledge that among others, teachers and schools are under more pressure than ever. I don’t know how much good it does to keep going on about that.
The question is, how do we handle it? That’s one of the questions we try to answer here at welleducator.org.
Matthew Cornell has a few suggestions. In his posting, How to Stay Balanced and Productive During Uncertainty and Crisis, Cornell provided no short list of suggestions. I really like his first item – it reads,
Acknowledge this is a big deal: We are in the midst of major changes, ones the severity of which this country hasn’t experienced for generations. So cut yourself some slack! It is natural for these to have an impact; you’re not alone on this. Also realize that this will absolutely have a significant impact now and in the future, at least for a while. So starting adaptation now is a good investment in yourself.
The remainder of Cornell’s posting is just as common-sense, and very doable.
So, if you are one of the many people out there in the education world – be you a public, private, higher ed or home school educator, have a look at Cornell’s words of wisdom. I’ve downloaded his ebook, and will have a review for you later this week.
