Five Ways for Teachers to Recharge This Summer

Five Ways for Teachers to Recharge This Summer.

Say,” Thank You!” to a teacher this week. Tell them about these 5 creative ways to recharge this summer! Send them this article from The Greater Good Science Center, which, according to their website:

“…has been at the fore of a new scientific movement to explore the roots of happy and compassionate individuals, strong social bonds, and altruistic behavior—the science of a meaningful life. Based at the University of California, Berkeley, the GGSC is unique in its commitment to both science and practice: Not only does it foster groundbreaking scientific research into social and emotional well-being, it also helps people apply this research to their personal and professional lives.”

In this article, Emily Campbell, a research assistant for the Greater Good Science Center’s education program and a Ph.D. student in education at UC Berkeley, suggests 5 exercises for teachers at the end of the school year promoting forgiveness, self-compassion, renewing a sense of awe of the world we live in, recognizing gratitude and using photos to create meaning in your life.

Whether we are teachers or not, we can all use these exercises to review, refresh, revitalize and recharge this summer!

What ways will you use to create meaning in your life this summer?
