The Tip on 9/25 gives some suggestions for self-care in the middle of the school day. How are you taking care of yourself to safeguard against burnout?

I would say taking the time to read your posts are a good way to slow down and take a break!  At the beginning of shut down there was so much going on that I would save the Daily 5 posts until later. You are thinking I will never get back to them. CORRECT!  Now, I am taking the couple of minutes to read, reflect, and now post as a way of self care.  Thanks for taking the time on your end to stay connected!

We can no longer eat together with colleagues. Our lunch break is theoretically 30 min, but you know that is trimmed to 15 in reality. We eat alone at our desk. I miss adult conversation.  I need a mental break and I find watching 15 minutes of "The West Wing" on Netflix takes me away from school and gives me a mental vacation.  Gotta love Arron Sorkin dialogue!

I make it a point to set a time to stop school work/checking email/etc. I try to give myself at least an hour to read and unwind right before bed because if I don't I have a much harder time falling to sleep.
