December is nearly upon us.
Following on from the fantastic #teacher5aday initiative launched a couple of years ago by @MartynReah, I have been considering my childhood memories of opening an Advent calendar in the run up to December 25th. The daily door to be opened to find a chocolate treat!
This December, very excitingly, @Vivgrant has been in contact with me to share a fabulous idea through her Integrity Coaching website. Viv and her team are developing an plan to encourage a range of bloggers to share mini-blogs about how they maintain their own (or others) wellbeing. We have planned some cross overs between the two strands of this December reflection and sharing.
Given that #teacher5aday is about promoting staff wellbeing, and encouraging us to find time on a regular basis to look after ourselves and others, last year I created a set of wellbeing windows of opportunity for December. As November draws to a close I will be re-sharing these wellbeing suggestions again this year.
If you follow the hashtags #teacher5aday #wintercalendar (yes I have separated them this year following wise advice from @MartynReah @TeacherToolkit and @Vivgrant) you will receive a daily reminder of a treat for yourself or others behind the door for the day.
