#019: Why You're Feeling Stuck and How to Get Started Again

Uncategorized Aug 06, 2020

Are you feeling stuck? Overwhelmed? So stressed out you can't seem to make simple decisions?

When overwhelm sets in and you simply can't make a move left or right, much less forward, it can feel like you're walking through mud. Stuck. Barely moving. Everything seems like it's conspiring to keep you in place as the rest of life rushes past. Maybe you have teacher friends who are just embracing the situation and moving on but for some reason you are just stuck.

Right now, many teachers are in that awful place. It might be because you STILL don't know the plan for school starting so it's nearly impossible to plan. Or maybe you just can barely face the overwhelm of figuring out how to teach in this new, ever shifting normal. Or maybe you're grieving and feeling unmoored by not being able to teach in your classroom, your anchor.

How do you get unstuck and back on track so you can move forward and enjoy teaching again?
