Looking to Quill for 5 Unexpected Ways to Recharge During the Daily Hustle





Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions however, are genuine and entirely my own.

Yesterday, I had a complete breakdown in my classroom. Someone did something completley unthinkable to another student and I just started crying. To my way of thinking, your maturity level does not matter, there are certain things you just do not do. One of those was definitely breached and I raised my voice, reprimanded them and started crying. I is unthinkable, but it was just one day. One day in a sea of many that are not so bad at all. I have perspective.

One thing that helped me, besides talking to the assistant principal and my fellow teachers in my area during our break time, was going to my car and calling my mom. :) Sometimes it just helps to be able to seek out a loved one and I was so happy she was there for me. Quill understands that there are days at work that are more stressful than others, and they've put together a wonderful article that offers 5 unexpected ways to recharge during the daily hustle. One of them is to reconnect with a loved one, I couldn't agree more.

Quill is a wonderful website that offers all kinds of tips, ideas, and unusual findings for every kind of situation you can think of within an office setting. Every single time you head on over to visit, you are going to find an article to learn from and/or enjoy. I definitely do!

Glad mom was there for you. I don't think I want to know what the student did.

Life sure can pile it on sometimes. Calling a loved one to chat can help indeed.

I can remember calling my mother when I had an issue. I sure wish I could still do that. What a lovely way to deal with issues that seem to pop up at any moment.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. ♥

I would think being a teacher is a stressful job anyway. It was awesome that you called your and talked to your co-workers. Often times just saying what is bothering you unloads your mind. Quill was obviously very helpful for you.

Sorry to hear you had such a stressful day at work.

I would love to check this website out especially when I'm having a stressful day or a stressful week. I'd love to get tips and know what to do!

When I am in time of stress I always manage myself to take some stretch and have a good eating habit. It helps me a lot in time of my relaxation. But the best way is to talk to someone and yes
talking to my mom can really ease the stress that I am going through.

I like the thought of talking to a loved one when I am feeling stress. My sister always helps me feel better. There is nothing like family to help during those stressful times. I will have to check out this site.

It is great that your mother can help you and provide some solace. My husband provides me with this kind of support when I need it. I used to be a teacher in the past for some time. It is very hard to react exactly correctly and in a composed fashion in a classroom situation.

We all have tough days. I'm glad you had people to lean on and call to comfort you during a difficult time.

Mom has always been a great source of strength! Hope things will get better..

I will look into this website. There are times I really need something uplifting to read especially when I hit a "bump in the road." I wish I could talk with my mom the way we did before, but she is getting old and cannot grasp the ways of the present time.

Sara said...

These are great ways to recharge!

Kristen Campbell said...

Interesting! We all have that kind of day at one time or another. I'm glad you've found something helpful!

That is such a great idea. The best way to relieve stress and our problem is to talk with our loving parents. and Quill is such a helpful website for you.

Bobbi said...

This is such a great idea. This would definitely be helpful to me too I am sure.

I call my mom when I am stressed too. Nothing soothes like the words from your mama.

My 3rd year students are disrespectful of each other's feelings, blame the teachers for them not doing their work, and some are talking about dropping out. I had a rough time with them when they were in 1st year. They still haven't learned. One student called me in to talk with me for 20 min. All she did was go off about other students, and how hard things are in school. I listened, then said while she points fingers at the teachers she needs to point her thumb at herself. She opted to move out of her Dad's house that she had to herself, when she could have stayed to help with money and not work so hard. She doesn't work all that hard - that I see. This one particular class is not at all great for even being in class.

I hear ya about breaking down. I wish I could wiggle my nose and make this class of students into workers.

In my 1st year class I have a girl that has cancer, and a brother that was in high school that killed himself. Guess what? She's one of my best students. She doesn't point fingers. If she can do it, so can others.

My school uses Quill! They have great prices!
