Take Some Time to Unwind
Our lives are so full of activities, hobbies, responsibilities, and other time consuming things. Taking time to relax and unwind can not only decrease stress & anxiety, but it can improve your mood, clear your head, and allow you to enjoy more of the activities you do.
Sometimes, we even find ourselves so overwhelmed and antsy, that it is essential to take a minute to calm down. Whether it's because of a big test, something that's causing us stress at home, a fight with a friend that has us worked up, or something else - there are so many techniques we can use or offer to fellow gardeners in distress to help them calm down.
We can all benefit from taking a few minutes to focus on our breath and release some tension. Try one of our mindfulness techniques here, or find a short guided meditation online!
Do a 5-minute freestyle
If you notice a handful of your students getting antsy take 5 minutes to have a freestyle dance party. Combining the element of surprise with getting everyone up and moving will help your students get the ants out of their pants and focus once they sit back down.
