One of the smartest things I've done since opening my preschool six years ago now is to allow myself to take a month off. I worked the month of June, running summer camps and taking care of the house, then my teaching partner took over doing the same for the month of July. I can't even begin to express what a relief it was for me to not have to worry about yard work, answering emails, or even just stopping by to pick up the mail. For the first time I truly had a mental break from my work and it.was.wonderful!
But now, it's time for me to get back to work. I'm a week into creating the mountain of paperwork that has to be distributed to each family and now I'm starting to feel anxious about the physical work I have to do at the school.
