Sanity Savers!

With the new school year almost upon us here in Australia, I am linking up with Elizabeth from Kickin' It In Kindergarten to share some sanity savers!

I absolutely love GoNoodle and I am eager to try out the new brain breaks they have made while I have been soaking in the summer sun!


Fav GoNoodle Brain Break: Definitely the Zumba Kids videos. It's so hard to choose just one! These ones are great because they get the kids up and moving.
Happy Place: I got to enjoy many moments like this - curled up on the couch next to my husband with our dog sprawled out on top of us, between us or on our feet. It has felt so good to just sit and relax, watch some TV and not have a to do list running through my head. With only 1 week till work starts again, I'm sure going to miss those relaxing moments.
Guilty Pleasure: I am not really a tea drinker, to be honest. But last year one of my student gave me a box of peppermint tea and cookies as a Christmas gift. I am now slightly addicted to peppermint tea (maybe because it tastes like candy canes?).
Keep Calm and...: I have been making the most of the nice weather the past few days and have managed to take my dog for a walk every morning. Normally, my husband walks her in the morning, and we both do in the afternoon (well, usually he does while I collapse on the couch after a busy day at school). One of my "new year resolutions" is to get fitter and healthier. I have found going for a morning/evening walk to be calming and great for clearing my head. Hopefully, I can keep it up once school starts! 

What about you? How do you stay sane?

Till next time, 
Stay joyful :)
