Top 10 Stress Relief Tips

Prac here I come!  I have been advised this morning that a placement has been allocated and I will go out on prac on Monday.

The wait was worth it as my school has a strong commitment to digital citizenship and a good student to ICT ratio.  I am looking forward to meeting with my mentor on Monday to discuss the possible ICT integration within the lessons.

Reflecting on the work I have done with identifying possible ICTs and aligning them with the CLEM framework will serve me well.  There will be no time to stress between now and Monday which I see as an upshot.  I did google dealing with stress and came across this site which lists 10 tips for stress relief.

Cavanagh & Prescott (2015, p.7) suggest the following ideas to maintain good physical, mental and emotional shape while on prac:

  • eat nutritiously
  • minimise the sugary drinks which adversely effect levels of concentration
  • take a water bottle and drink water when you can
  • exercise before or after school to boost fitness
  • ensure adequate quality sleep
  • minimise social outings during the school week; relax with family and friends on the weekend.

I wish all a very successful and rewarding prac next week.
